Robert P. Crosby is an author, poet, singer, and organization development practitioner. In 1969 he founded an Institute that is now a graduate school at Saybrook University. An ordained Methodist, he recently was named a distinguished alumnus by Boston University. Crosby has three business books written out of his experience in organizations, two spiritual books from his passion for non-dogmatic meaning and social justice, a poetry book, and, with his wife Patricia, a pictorial diary of a month in his beloved Volpaia, Tuscany, a village of 52 in Italy. In October 2014 you would have heard him in concert in the ancient church there. In the fall you would have met him still (at age 86) working with sons in Crosby & Associates. In the 50's he was emerged in the budding T-group and organization development movements while simultaneously learning from the "godfather of the civil rights movement", mystic Howard Thurman who famously impacted the young MLK Jr.
