Russell makes effective use of masks in his training work. They help get to the core of things rapidly.
In a real sense, we all don a mask when we come to work – this is an identity we assume in order to perform a task. Russell’s work, particularly with mask, can release the individual from their corporate mask in order to explore his or her true humanity.
