Develop your leaders

All organizations have their unique cultures. The key to a good culture is strong leadership.

Participate in my research

Right now I'm doing a study on passion and purpose in leadership to complete my doctoral studies in Positive Organizational Psychology at Claremont Graduate University.

In return for taking two 10 minute surveys, I'm offering a free 30-minute coaching session to all participants - and lots of other free perks to organizations that bring in multiple sets of participants, including workshops and custom consulting.

This is a two-part online survey. Part A takes 10 minutes and is completed by a person in any kind of supervisory role. That person then nominates someone who works with them (a direct report, supervisor, or peer) to take part B, which is a different 10 minute survey. 

If you don't supervise anyone, you can still take Part B and get the reward - you just have to nominate your own supervisor to take Part A. 

The survey is confidential and responses will only be shared in aggregate (see the full consent form by clicking the button below). 

I'm offering additional generous incentives for participation by multiple people in the same work groups - organizations, departments and work teams.
