  • He credits his ability to deal with tragic and near tragic situations to his work as a pastor where he was faced with nearly every imaginable human and organizational situation.

  • Warren is known for invoking, evoking, and provoking himself and others in order to discover what is really going on internally and externally. Through humor, conversation, and looking at ordinary things from the “dance floor and the balcony” is his way of engaging an individual or groups to see what hasn’t been seen. He is a “facilitator’s facilitator.”
