we all dance to a mysterious tune,
In keeping with bell hooks and Noam Chomsky, I consider myself a public and dissident intellectual. Part of my work is to move beyond (transcend) institutional dogmas that bind me to defend freedom, raising my voice to be heard on behalf of those who seek equity and justice in all their forms.
I completed my PhD in Philosophy of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA. My dissertation and research was how teachers experience becoming teachers and their role as leaders.
I focus on leading, communicating, and innovating in organizations. This includes mindfuful servant-leadership, World Cafe events, Appreciative Inquiry, and expressing one's self through creativity. I offer retreats, workshops, and presentations that can be tailored to your organzations specific needs.
I published peer reviewed articles about schools as learning organizations, currere as an ethical pursuit, and hope as an essential element of adult eductaion. I published three poems and am currently preparing my poetry to publish as an anthology of poetry.
I present on mindful leadership, servant leadership, schools as learning organizations, how teachers experience becoming teachers, assessement, and critical thinking. I facilitate mindfulness, hospitality retreats. and World Cafe Events using Appreciative Inquiry.
I am writing and researching about various forms of leadership, how teachers inform and form their identity as a particular teacher, schools as learning organizations, hope and its anticipatory relationship with the future, and hope as an essential element in learning.
So true and we all hear a different beat and song. 🙂 Even if it’s actually the same tune. Happy Holiday.
We do. It is the beauty of being human. Merry Christmas and all the best in 2018.
A wonderful Einstein quote, Ivon; so evocative yet calming!
Do have a happy, safe and joy filled festive season.
It is one I had not come across before. Thank you Carolyn. Take care and enjoy Christmas and best wishes in 2018.
No! No dancing! At least, not where anyone can see me………LOL
I have two left feet, so I tend to dance when no one is watching. Is that the same as dancing like no one is watching?
