I am passionate about:
Very much issues of gender, specifically women. Yet, more recently, I have been exploring the concepts of masculinity and femininity and how we are free to (or not free to) express those, and what the consequences are for our choices. I am also very passionate about athletics as I was a college basketball coach for 13 years. I think there is a need to work adaptive leadership in athletics and help athletes learn to address their adaptive challenges while they train and strive for performance excellence. I have also started a "Conscious Kids" program, teaching adaptive leadership and group dynamics to youth and teens.
My PhD is in leadership from USD. Adaptive leadership is a foundation of our leadership approach. I am the director of the Conscious Leadership Academy at USD and the founder/director of the Center for Women's Leadership at USD. I am also a leadership coach and trainer/speaker. I work with with Terri Monroe on Group Relations and leadership conferences, and my area of research and expertise is women/gender and leadership as well as group and team dynamics. I teach in the Dept. of Leadership Studies at USD and goal is to create more adaptive leadership alliances out west. I also consult and coach through Lotus Leadership Institute, my own company.
I can thought partner on the following topics:
Gender, women and leadership. I also feel like leadership development, specifically how we facilitate and train with an adaptive mindset is a great area that I have been working on. There is a way we coach and facilitate, a methodology that uniquely defines the approach to working with groups and organizations that I don't feel we have articulated well yet. I am interested in how we design curriculum to teach leadership and get more individuals and organizations willing to do the deeper work.
