I Would Like Your Help

Please assist me in writing essays. Those who have shared experiences with Lenette and I can help a lot. I remember much, and I am grateful for that.  But going on 97 years this coming December, I accept that my memory might be questionable. I invite you to help with clarity or at least what you remember.  Also, although still a fair student of power, leadership, communication, relationships, and dialogue, I welcome any and all suggestions as to what to write about. 

As far as my essays go, I have remained with what I know from having experienced and studied. I have rarely gone into “conjecture, guessing, or playing” with thoughts not grounded in my reality and history. That does not mean I do not forget. I do, about some things, but generally not when I write about what I taught and the people I worked with. Most of the children, staff, and professionals/entrepreneurs I worked with are all etched in my mind. What I need is help in recalling some details.

Steve Z pointed this out to me. He was on the trip to the Warner Mountains and well-remembers our trip and the water issue, but differently. I loved reading his take on it. Also, Lenette pointed out that she was not on this trip. And so, it goes. So here’s my big ask. I would appreciate any suggestions for essays from any of you. My only request is that the subject be drawn from my history. Beginning with Purple Sage, on to Camp Shasta, Las Vegas, YSU, the Youth Hotel, Lake Tahoe, and the many remarkable adventures with corporations and government.

There is so much to be thankful for, from planning and making things happen to those “serendipitous” events that helped us reach mountain tops, which we most certainly did.

So, join me in my writing adventures. Tell me your story, and if I was in any way involved, it will stir me to write about it. Be my partner.

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows
