In my teaching, whether with degree students or practicing executives, I strive to combine research-driven lessons with experiential exercises and real-world case studies. My goal is to create an engaging session that prepares people to be more effective leaders in their workplace. Given my research and prior work as an outdoor education instructor, my teaching heavily emphasizes experiential learning opportunities. In my classes, I incorporate challenging experiences that stretch students’ abilities and help them recognize how they can apply concepts from organizational research to their everyday actions at work.

In addition to my teaching in the classroom, I also consult and conduct custom executive development training with individuals and organizations around the world. This executive education focuses on (1) helping individuals enhance their ability to learn and develop as leaders, and (2) helping organizations design tools and processes to facilitate more effective team learning and build a strong leadership pipeline. I have worked with groups from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from Fortune 500 companies and government agencies to academic medical centers and air medical and emergency services teams.
