Background
Western Behavioral Sciences Institute (WBSI) was founded in 1958 in La Jolla, California by Richard Farson, Wayman Crow and Paul Lloyd as an independent, nonprofit organization devoted to research, education and advanced study in human affairs. Its early work included group encounter sessions involving psychologists such as Carl Rogers. From 1981-1991, WBSI's School of Management and Strategic Studies (SMSS; later the International Executive Forum, IEF and the International Leadership Forum, ILF) pioneered the use of teleconferencing and computer conferencing in leadership development, policy formation, education, health, social welfare and the formation of global communities of influence.
