Scholar + Practitoner

I am a scholar & practitioner of instructional design within the context of human resource development.  That is, I research, teach, and practice the design of instruction for developing the skills and abilities of people in the workplace.  I particularly seek to understand the experiences of individuals within organizations who improve performance—investigating the designs, techniques, and strategies that are more- and less-effective in promoting improved performance.

My dissertation, titled From Novice to Expert: The Development of a Servant Leader, examines how a collection of identified servant leaders develop their behavioral style and attitudinal approach over time, highlighting the importance of understanding the cumulative effect that training (micro and macro) and trigger experiences have on a leader’s development.
