Hi All,
We have a great (and also free!) opportunity for you coming up very soon, featuring our visiting servant-leadership scholar from the Netherlands, Dr. Dirk van Dierendonck.  I came to know Dr. van Dierendonck at a Global Research Roundtable in the Netherlands some years ago, and now his work is among the leading work in the field.  This is a wonderful chance to meet and learn from an international high level scholar!  Here it is below, and please do send me an email if you plan to attend. ferch@gonzaga.edu
Great to be learning together with you fine scholars here at Gonzaga in the Doctoral Program in Leadership Studies!
Honored,
Dr. Shann Ray Ferch

 

DO YOU THINK SERVANT LEADERSHIP IS SOFT? 
Come meet with Dr. Dirk van Dierendonck, to learn about the advanced quantitative techniques and robust numerics being employed in servant leadership around the world.  Did you know servant-led organizations in Fortune Magazine’s list of the 100 best companies to work for perform at twice the market rate?  Did you know Starbucks, Synovus Financial, TDI, and Southwest Airlines are examples of companies that implement full-scale servant-leadership training for employees and perennially top Fortune’s list?  Dr. van Dierendonck won’t be covering the ins and outs of these companies.  He will, however, help us look at the advanced quantitative measurement of servant-leadership and how it impacts people and organizations.
 
Doctoral students and faculty will welcome Dr. van Dierendonck to two events.  Please attend both if you can, as we’d love to see you there!  Also, please feel free to invite scholarly friends. 
July 11th from 1-4pm: Servant-Leadership Quantitative Research Seminar
and July 11th from 430-530pm: Servant-Leadership Research Presentation
 
Both events will be held in the Tilford Center room 405. 
Dr. Dirk van Dierendonck is an associate professor of organisational behavior at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), a top 3 management school in Europe.  His areas of expertise include leadership (notably servant leadership), positive organisational behaviour, leadership development, and measurement development.  Professor Dierendonck is the associate editor of the International Journal of Servant Leadership. He is co-founder of the Erasmus Center for Leadership Studies, and co-founder and co-organiser of the New Directions in Leadership Research conference organised by Duke University in the UK, Erasmus University in the Netherlands, INSEAD in France, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in the USA.  Dirk van Dierendonck is the author of books, book chapters and over 60 scholarly articles published in the major academic journels including the Journal of Management, the Journal of Applied Psychology, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, and the European Journal of Work and Organizational Behavior.
Also, here’s an exceptional video featuring Dirk’s work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OV6QQxPWMUk

Doctoral candidates Rae Randleman and Debbie Brown recently attended the annual Cultural Studies Association conference, held this year at the University of Utah. The theme was “Ecologies: Relations of Culture, Matter, and Power.” This year was also special as Stuart Hall, the “father of cultural studies,” was honored due to his recent passing.

Rae was accepted into a closed seminar entitled, “Against the Romance of Collaboration,” and may be doing further work on the subject with this group. Debbie was accepted into a seminar entitled, “Workshop for Job Seekers in Cultural Studies.” Debbie also had a paper accepted called “Postcolonial Ecologies of Aid to African Nations,” which she presented as part of the panel, “Natural Order: Critical Examinations of Science, Visualization and Hegemony.” Additionally, Debbie was invited to chair this panel.

Word from Nigeria

Posted by: ferch | May 22, 2014 | 1 Comment |

Thank you to Debbie Brown for this word below from Fr. Buchi in Nigeria.

 

Dear DPLS community,

Many of you know recent graduate, Dr. Maduabuchi Muoneme, better known to us as Father Buchi. Upon graduation, Father Buchi returned to his native country, Nigeria, to resume his duties as a Jesuit priest. In the wake of the 276 schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram and further terrorist acts by this group that have left hundreds dead and everyone in fear, I emailed Father Buchi to see if he was OK and if there is anything we, the DPLS community, could do. I sent him the photograph of First Lady Michelle Obama holding up the sign, “#BringBackOurGirls” and attached a news story from NBC about the 80 troops we (the U.S.) now has in Chad to staff the drone operations that are flying over Nigeria looking for the missing girls.

With his permission, here is his response:

 

Dear Debbie,

Thank you for your prayers. It has been a nightmare in Nigeria. Although I am physically OK, it is difficult to say I am OK, because the whole nation is traumatized by the barbaric acts of this wicked sect. Response to the callous situation really requires international attention and coordinated effort. Please continue your prayers.

Thanks for the news you sent from Obama and the United Sates government. It beefs up hope for action and freedom!

Regards,

Buchi
