Dr. Mark Grandstaff, PhD
In the field of strategic leadership education and personal reflectivity, Dr. Mark Grandstaff, a Senior Fellow at the James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership at the University of Maryland is internationally known for extending the Reflectivity Movement to a wide variety of business and military venues. His latest book on strategic leadership education has received critical acclaim from Drs. Stephen Covey (Seven Habits of Highly Effective People) and Michael Ray, author of Creativity in Business. Additionally, he has advised Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton, served on the President’s Council for National Service, and has taught at UC Berkeley, Oxford, UCLA, the University of Auckland, BYU and the Army’s and Air Force’s War Colleges. Trained in Depth Psychology, Dr. Grandstaff engages professionals in an analysis of their personality and temperament types and archetypal selves, thus helping them gain profound insight into their way of seeing and doing things and providing them with the tools to help understand colleagues and clients whose ways of interpreting and communicating with others are different. In a work world that is experiencing greater personal, cultural and ideological diversity, the model and skills Dr. Grandstaff helps employees and leaders cultivate are essential to an effective work force, a strong corporate brand and a significant return on investment. He is a master at helping leaders and companies reflect on the essence of who they are and what they bring to the table. His research in the field of midlife at work has led to our understanding better how archetypal reflectivity stimulates the individuation process and the quest for calling and professional renewal. His most recent book on professional renewal is Reclaiming the Fire: Depth Psychology in Teacher Renewal, with Cliff Mayes.
Dr. Clifford Mayes, PhD
Dr. Clifford Mayes was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1953. His home lay directly between the Mexican American and African American inner city of Tucson and the Papago Indian Reservation. His proudest scholastic achievement is that he was class president throughout junior and senior high school where these students made up about 80% of the student body. He went on to get a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics with a focus on second-language acquisition and a master’s degree with special emphasis in ethnic minority American literature. He holds two doctorates, one in Educational Psychology and the other in clinical psychology. He taught at Universities in Japan and Panama in the 1980’s and then at Brigham Young University for 25 years, where he was the chairman of the multicultural education program in the College of Education. He has authored 15 books and 40 refereed articles, founding what is called “Jungian/Archetypal Pedagogy”. His book, Jung and Education: Elements of an Archetypal Pedagogy (2000, Rowman and Littlefield), was the first book?length study in English of the educational implications and applications of Jung’s Collected Works. Another of his books, An Introduction to the Collected Works of C.G. Jung: Psyche as Spirit (2020, Rowman and Littlefield), was called by The Journal of Analytical Psychology, along with Murray Stein’s Jung’s Map of the Soul, the best introduction to Jung in the last decade. Mayes’ most recent book, Archetype, Culture, and the Individual: The Three Pedagogical Narratives (2021, Routledge) combines Ricoeur’s theory of time and Jung’s writings to craft a study that teases out the pedagogical and therapeutic implications of the works of these two theorists. In Mayes’ latest examination he relates their work to what he has called “educative acts” as an existential reality, not just “educational processes” as a strictly classroom phenomenon. A practicing Roman Catholic, Mayes is presently working on a Jungian exegesis of The Gospel According to St. John, entitled Psyche as Sacrament.
