in the Classroom.
by Creative Conversations.
In my teaching, I love helping students learn to balance their creative and critical impulses when thinking about organizations. The joy I get from education is supporting students as they navigate the bridge from theory to action. This outcome is just as compelling whether I work with undergraduates, graduate students, or executives. I believe that leaders who enact such ways of thinking are as rare as they are valuable.
When I teach, I focus on:
Multi-Disciplinary Engagement, knowing that the categories we use to describe the world can sometimes keep us from understanding it holistically,
Theory and Practice Dialectic, believing that complex problems in the real world are illuminated through theory and action in dialogue, and
Teaching in Relationship, understanding that the richness of learning expands in a context of trust, understanding, and mutual vulnerability.
