Tom Esch, author of “Personal Accountability and Power”, who appeared at DUUC as Father Vito last year will speak for himself this week. He will tell us about the lighter side of those uncomfortable conversations, along with some tips for making them a bit easier.

Since then he has completed degrees in Art and Communication from the University of Wisconsin at River Falls and a master’s in Theology from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. He also received a master’s in “Conflict Facilitation and Organizational Change” from the Process Work Institute in Portland, Oregon

He also does stand-up comedy, from time to time, in the spirit of Fr. Guido Sarducci, as Fr. Vito Incognito. His new book, Personal Accountability and POWER, is a culmination of 25
years of training, consulting and coaching people from a variety of cultures and all walks of life.
