Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer And A Four-Year-Old: Lessons For Leadership & Life, Connie I. Reimers-Hild Dec 2011

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer And A Four-Year-Old: Lessons For Leadership & Life, Connie I. Reimers-Hild

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Last week while I was in the shower, my four-year-old daughter, Raquel, walked into the bathroom and asked me an interesting question. “Mom, why doesn’t anyone like Rudolph’s shiny red nose?” My daughter was supposed to be in bed sleeping. I am 99% sure she was lying in bed reflecting on her day.

Many nights I have quietly checked on her before going to bed myself only to find her talking to herself while she makes vivid hand gestures and motions. On this particular evening, her talk and gestures must have focused on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. After ...

Coaching Power Tool: Success Vs. Failure, Connie I. Reimers-Hild Sep 2011

Coaching Power Tool: Success Vs. Failure, Connie I. Reimers-Hild

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Part of personal leadership and innovation is self-discovery, which requires introspection and the ability to see the unseen. Sometimes it is necessary to consider a different perspective. We have to shift our thinking to see possibilities in a new light. Sometimes, it is the unobvious that may be the most important. It is important for us to challenge our thinking and traditional thought to redefine success, failure and our ability to take risks.

Coaching Power Tool: Wants vs. Musts

Identifying and Clarifying Wants and Musts

Our actions do not always reflect what we say we want. This power tool is designed to clarify what you want vs. what you must have and/or do. And I mean really, really must have and/or experience. The deep down, gut-wrenching things that you just can’t live without.

The trick here is to block out all those annoying little distractions and voices that get in the way. So again, when doing these Innovation Actions, I encourage you to find a quiet space and a block ...

What Brings People To Leadership Roles: A Phenomenological Study Of Beef Industry Leaders, B. Lynn Gordon

Building Organizational Capacity For Enrollment Performance Measurement: A Mixed Methods Investigation, Lynda Ruth Wallace-Hulecki Apr 2011

Building Organizational Capacity For Enrollment Performance Measurement: A Mixed Methods Investigation, Lynda Ruth Wallace-Hulecki

Educational Administration: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

The use of enrollment performance measurement systems can enable the provision of intelligence information to inform strategic decision-making and the effective management of enrollment. A review of the literature indicated that the development of enrollment intelligence systems was a nascent area in which only a select few institutions had successfully developed applications. In addition, no published models or guidelines were found for assessing an organization’s capacity for success in developing advanced enrollment performance measurement capabilities linked to enrollment performance improvement.

The purposes of this study were twofold: (a) to identify the culture value orientations and organizational capacity conditions that ...

Instructor Technology Use: A Mixed Methods Investigation, Suzanne K. Becking Apr 2011

Instructor Technology Use: A Mixed Methods Investigation, Suzanne K. Becking

Educational Administration: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

This mixed methods concurrent triangulation study was designed to examine instructional leaders’ descriptions of their experience with integrating technology into their teaching. Seminal studies from the 1990s were found to remain true today—that teachers are not ready to incorporate technology into their teaching (Becker, 1999; Ertmer, 1999). In the decade since Becker’s and Ertmer’s findings, changes have been seen in select pockets of the university community. I was interested in exploring one of these “pockets” that has been identified through my work with online instruction and in consultations with faculty who are either beginning or are veterans ...
