Research

I am dedicated to a multidisciplinary, holistic approach to client development and research. As an Assistant Professor of Vanguard University’s Organizational Psychology Graduate Program I supervise Graduate students’ various  research projects. Examples of such projects (some of which include the development of self-leadership and super-leadership (leading others through self-leadership)) are described below. A number of noteworthy studies (described in the alphabetical order of topic/key words) follow:
