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.

Leading to Let Go

This type of leader has the belief that no person could do the job like they can so for that reason they must do everything (Woodell, 2009).  Many times these leaders seem that they are unable to ask for help or delegate. This leadership style is known … Continued

Laws on the definition of affiliate faculty

Recently laws have been passed by the Obama administration that places a definition on the amount of classes that an affiliate faculty member can teach before the institution is required to give them benefits. This is, on paper, a great thought and would benefit the affiliate faculty, yet in reality is not the case as … Continued
