This self-paced learning experience guides users through a foundational understanding of the concepts and solutions associated with the REACH Quotient (RQ) and offered within the REACH Ecosystem. While the content within this learning environment is aimed at new users of the REACH Ecosystem, advanced users also will find ample access to helpful guidance regarding their utilization of RQ.
Upon completion of this learning experience, users will be offered an opportunity to take an evaluation of their learning. Successful completion of the evaluation will demonstrate the user's preparation in leveraging RQ, allowing the user to be listed as "Certified REACH Practitioner" within correspondence and media.
Advisory Board Member, OrgDev Institute
After earning a Doctorate in Business Administration (with emphasis on Organizational Management), I entered the field of Industrial-Organizational Psychology as the VP of Research, and later as the CEO of a global employment assessment publisher. We did extensive consulting work in the areas of: Human Resources Management, Organizational Behavior, Leadership Development, and Applied Psychometrics.
In my consulting, I have worked with some of the largest employers in the world, as well as very small nonprofit organizations. So, I have seen the strategic and organizational challenges, techniques, and opportunities at just about every level. My consulting has covered nearly every aspect of organizational leadership, so I hope to bring that experience to our collaboration as we bridge the theory-practice gap that often exists.
I have published several articles and contributed to books and manuals, in addition to authoring a few global assessments that are now part of the REACH Ecosystem. I am certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources Management by the Human Resources Certification Institute and a Certified Senior Professional by the Society for Human Resource Management. I am a member of the Society for Human Resource Management and the Society for Industrial-Organizational Psychology.
I look forward to meeting and working with all of you in the coming weeks. Please let me know if I can serve your organizational development initiatives in any way.
