Our Self Assessment Questionnaire Team

 

The Management Team is presently focused on the reorganization of the company.  This includes redesigning the paper version of the InQ and redesigning and building the new website.  One of our future goals is to have single and group testing online which will help decrease our environmental footprint.  We appreciate your patience and are looking forward to presenting the new, updated website.

In 1974 Paul began providing consultation and community planning as the President of Third Party Associates, Inc.  Later in 2006, he began serving as President of InQ Educational Materials, Inc. and Styles of Thinking where he provided training materials for management training programs.  Paul and his wife, Helen S. Ross authored Health Education and Behavioral Sciences and Theory and Practice in Health Education (both translated to the Chinese language).  He also wrote Developing Your Community-Based Organization and, with James M. Kouzes, developed the Domain Theory to explain organizational behavior in human service organizations.  This was published in The Journal of Applied Behavioral Science.  He has published 40 titles in the public health field.

Paul served as the President of the Society of Public Health Education (SOPHE) in 1989.  He received his Doctor of Public Administration at age 91.  In his dissertation, Revisiting Domain Theory: Case Studies from San Francisco, he reviewed the validity of the original Domain Theory by carrying out new case studies of major non-profits in San Francisco.

Paul’s early career began after he was drafted in World War II, and spent a few years serving in the campaigns of Europe: Normandy, Northern France, the Battle of the Bulge, and Rhineland.  Returning to Ohio, he married and under the GI bill worked on and completed his Bachelors of Arts and a master’s degree in health and physical education from Ohio State University. He worked in the public health service in Ohio and Wyoming promoting basic public and mental health.  While in Wyoming he was awarded a scholarship to UC Berkeley to get his Master of Public Health degree.

Paul served as the Field Director with the US Indian Health Service on the Navajo Reservation (Navajo Nation) modifying the delivery system of their services to Native Americans.  In Washington DC from 1962 – 1964 he was the Director for the Community Action Studies Project, with the National Commission on Community Health Services. He organized 22 communities to develop and demonstrate health planning methodologies.  This resulted in the passage of Public Law 89-749, The Community Health Planning Act.  He became the Director of Health and Social Planning, Action for Boston Community Development, and helped develop the Neighborhood Health Center, which became the model for Senator Ted Kennedy’s Neighborhood Health Center Act.

As President of Social Dynamics, Inc. he organized and delivered behavioral science training programs.  He developed and promoted community change programs, such as the Hawaiian Community Action Programs and the National Health Service Corps, recruiting health workers to set up and operate health centers in isolated rural communities.
