LIFO® History

The LIFO® Method originated in 1967 as a positive and structured tool to supplement organizational development. Responding to these concerns, Dr. Stuart Atkins (right), with consultant Dr. Elias Porter, developed the Life Orientations Survey and the Life Orientations Method based on the work of Erich Fromm, Carl Rogers, and Abraham Maslow. In 1968, the Life Orientations Survey was presented by Dr. Atkins and his partner Dr. Allan Katcher (left) in the Human Factors in Management course at UCLA and with such diverse clients as the American Cancer Society, Mattel Toys, General Foods, U.S. Steel, and the State of California.
