About Human/Nature


 Everything I need to know about the economy and life  I could have learned from Mother Nature! 

Realization sparked by imagination ignited my exploration:

How our human behavior mimics the laws of science and nature.

I come by this realization naturally, pulling together experiences as a science teacher, and, communication coach and facilitator.  Bridging tips on communication, values, and conflict management along with our connection to, and need of the world around us, my goal is to spark thought and action.

We have to understand to care:  whether it is about ourselves and our emotions and talents, and the environment that nurtures us.

Sadly, people get freaked by science.

Human/Nature, though,  isn’t rocket science – it’s metaphorical science!

After all, so many science based metaphors are already used in everyday life. Human behavior proves the science!

Human/Nature takes it all a step further.  I will build on metaphors through essays, conversational stories along with the practical and applicable communication and life skills indicated above.

I’ll present some wildly whimsical sharings including conversations between Mother Nature, Humankind, Greenback and CreditCard as they battle over their shared and connected universe and some science ‘fiction’ for ‘water cooler’ discussion and enjoyment!

Share what you read – and what you think – please.

Looking for a Speaker?    I’m a dynamic and interactive speaker for audiences from tweens to corporate executives.  Topics tie together basic communication, conflict, relationships, life focus, finances with the laws of science and nature!  I promise talks to inform, promote thought and action, and entertain.

About me, Linda B. Katz:  Human/Nature is the creative fusion of my careers as a science teacher and communication coach and facilitator. My work as a coach and writer is to help us understand our behavior, identify needs through balance, while creating a balanced and sustainable life.  I believe if we are happy, we will live WITH the environment and within our means – better for us and the environment.

I’m a space explorer:  exploring space between ideas, people, and disciplines. The connection between these spaces offers insight, and meaning.

I’ve inhabited space as a  high school biology and chemistry  teacher, education adjunct (including teaching science methods to future elementary education teachers!), Research & Development trainer for hair care scientists, technical trainer, and, facilitation, coaching, and training in the ‘soft’ skills including:

  • Communication,
  • Conflict management,
  • Leadership,
  •  Motivation,
  • Public Speaking,
  • Values,
  • Creating financial balance,
  • Stress management, and,
  • Most important:  Listening.

My friend Michael says:  ‘don’t just think outside the box:  step outside’.  I agree and add:  be sure to take your valuables with you before you step.  After all, life is a journey and the mementos we pick up along the way are laden with stories and learnings that make our next stop ‘home’.

There is so much to learn in this life, and so much we can learn from Mother Nature IF we stop to listen.

Listen and learn with me.

Our ability to survive and thrive as individuals and a species depends on it!
