Lessons in Mindfulness from Sherlock Holmes

If you have been in the wildland fire service for a while, you know about Ted Putnam (US Forest Service).  Ted was a change agent for wildland fire and left an incredible legacy following his retirement in 1998. Dr. Ted Putnam held a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from the University of Montana. His research and contributions to learning psychology and decision theory within the wildland fire service have helped shape the organization. His work on human factors was critical to changing our culture following the Dude and South Canyon incidents.

Ted was a huge proponent producing mindful leaders. Check out Big Think's Lessons in Mindfulness from Sherlock Holmes: a look at mindfulness through the eyes of a Sherlock Holmes analogy.
