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.

The workplace in the 21st century is changing drastically. As Baby Boomers reach retirement and Generation X and Millennials take over the lion’s share of leadership in the workplace, new challenges await the younger generation. Relativism has made it challenging for those whose decisions are guided by Judeo-Christian values. In 2012, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission … Continued
One of the most interesting concepts I learned in my leadership class was tacit knowledge. Tacit knowledge can play a huge role in the success of an organization. Tacit knowledge is more so based on a person’s know-how (experience in the job) versus the explicit (formalized knowledge). I noticed the need for the combination of … Continued
Do you think it is a good idea to always tell the truth? Is there a difference between being a “team player” and a Whistleblower? When might the two be one in the same? When would you consider stepping up and confronting a boss who is demonstrating unethical conduct? What do you think will be … Continued
