Walk the Talk Blog
Welcome to the (2013) Walk-The-Talk blog. This blog was created and launched in 2007. Aimed at graduate students participating in the MBA and Organizational Management Leadership programs at Colorado Christian University (CCU), this blog has been developed as a change agent community and praxis research project. The idea is to share your individual and collective experiences, wisdom, understanding and knowledge in an “open” public forum, touching other people’s lives with a goal of impacting public opinion and influencing positive pro-social change. You are invited to join this ongoing “Action Learning” discussion to share your personal or professional viewpoints and real-life experiences as a lifelong learner (student) about business, politics and religion in America. Some questions to consider; Are we seeing more business as usual or is there hope for America’s free enterprise market future? How did we get here? Where do we go from here?
The purpose of this blog is to provide an “open” public space for knowledge sharing and Spirit learning. The posts are monitored, so you will need to set up an account on the blog. Email CAGS Administration to request an account; be sure to include your course number (e.g., LED-501) and section number (e.g., ONB75). You will receive an email with your user name and password.

I think that integrity matters and given enough time, usually lies are discovered and when we lie, we eventually lose integrity. With that said, I admit … Continued

We have been taught our whole lives that lying is bad and we should tell the truth no matter what. From a biblical perspective, we know that God wants us to always be honest and it is a sin to not tell the truth. When we focus on a topic such as “whistleblowing” telling the … Continued
I have worked in three different capacities as federal employee: military, civilian, and contractor. I have seen firsthand how difficult it can be to tell the truth. I have always chalked that up to not wanting to “rock the boat” in order to keep the job, especially with the turmoil our government has been in. … Continued
