Maximizer- Context- Adaptability- Individualization- Learner
Edward Ramos serves as a visiting professor of business and marketing at DeVry University, as well as, the lead counselor for Exceptional Student Education at Lyman High School. He is also the Director of EOS- The Center for Human Development and Flourishing in Sanford, Florida. Completing his Master of Education in Counseling Psychology from the College of Saint Rose and his Master of Business Administration from Belhaven College, Mr. Ramos has engaged strength’s perspectives in higher education, secondary education, and has developed a model within opiate dependence and methadone maintenance programs that will facilitate increased resiliency towards recovery.
Previous to education and counseling, he worked in the service industry and as an entrepreneur. His creative spirit has led him down a different path towards leveraging the dynamic power behind the strength’s perspective as a driver of flourishing, well-being, and hope. These constructs possess a great ability to reward “seekers” with increased positive effectuality, increased engagement in the moment, more authentic relationships, a deeper sense and awareness of personal meaning, and a pathway to higher achievement.
Ed is currently completing his doctoral degree from George Fox University and is working towards developing a systemic strengths approach to management that infuses positivity, mutual engagement of strengths-based abilities as a synthetic approach to culture development and productivity. Similar to enabling families, Ed believes that organizations can meet the changing environment by leveraging differentiation within its human resources in a way that values and encourages risk taking, organizational learning, and a shared sense of accomplishment.
Ed strengths include maximizer, context, adaptability, individualization, and learner. The paradigm through which Ed envisions the world emanates from his strengths and defines reality through a multi-varied approach, however the past informs the present and future and is buffered by each individual’s understanding of past experiences and the needs of the present environment. Mental modes are then altered in a way that doesn’t rely on old solutions for new problems, but newer solutions for new problems.
