MY CURRENT RESEARCH

I am a Fellow at the Institute for Social Innovation at Fielding Graduate University where I am involved in several research projects. These projects are focused on understanding the strategic decision making processes of leaders, the nature of consciousness raising, the development of communities of practice, and leadership transformations experienced through the executive coaching relationship. My research is focused on supporting extraordinary leadership through coaching and mentoring.
