In fact, some of the material in the book was developed for such clients as Baystate Medical Center, Coca-Cola, Friendly’s, National Institute of Financial Education, Mead, Monsanto, Smith & Wesson, the Social Security Administration, the Visiting Nurse Association, and YMCAs.

Dr. Lussier holds a bachelor of science in business administration from Salem State College, master’s degrees in business and education from Suffolk University, and a doctorate in management from the University of New Haven.
