Robert Fritz is an accomplished, writer, director, composer, consultant, and teacher who has been developing the field of structural dynamics for over thirty years. His work in the areas of creative process and organizational, business, and management issues has garnered worldwide acclaim. Fritz has authored 8 books which have been translated into 15 languages, among these are Your Life As Art and Identity.
Robert began his career playing music and studying and teaching musical composition. He began to see that the structural principles that are so much a part of the composer's art have profound importance when applied to human development. It is from these insights that his structural approach was born.
At the same time, Robert began to see that the very same process that creators use to create music, painting, sculpture, dance, drama, film, poetry, and literature could be applied to the way people live their daily lives, that it is possible to approach the life building process in exactly the same way – as if it were a work of art. He went on to develop his first course to teach people to use the creative process in their lives and later began to train instructors in his approach. Since then, more than 80,000 people throughout the world have taken trainings developed by him.
His first book, The Path of Least Resistance, became an international bestseller. A true classic, it details how a person can utilize the creative process and the knowledge of structure to create their life according to their highest aspirations and deepest goals. His second book, Creating, gives even more detail on the principles of the creative process. His book, The Path of Least Resistance for Managers, takes the technology that is outlined in the first two books and applies it to organizations. His latest book Your Life As Art takes his groundbreaking work a step further. It covers the spirit of the creative process - what drives people to create. Many are saying it is his best book yet.
