President Brophy's Sabbatical Journal
Marymount California University President, Dr. Michael S. Brophy, has been invited by the Huffington Post to share his sabbatical journals. President Brophy's reflections on his experience will be shared every two to three weeks via these blog posts.
During his sabbatical, President Brophy hopes to identify and address certain leadership theory questions that present themselves in both the higher education sector and in modern society, including:
Technology and Information: Acquiring information may no longer be a barrier for leaders, but how do they interpret data when it is coming in faster and in greater quantities? How do they develop organizational capacities for reflection and learning in our information age?
Resilience: What are the attributes of demonstrably resilient organizations in an era where the pace of change seems to be escalating so quickly?
Well-Being: How do leaders create and sustain environments where members of the organization can develop their own personal sense of well-being?
Disruptive Innovation: What do these two words really mean? Do they represent a way to interpret an accelerating change dynamic? Or are they our attempt to make sense of increasingly chaotic times?
Environmental Scanning: How do leaders successfully interpret and navigate local, regional, domestic, and international trends and policy dynamics when developing a coherent and effective case for change to their community?
