Dr. Charles Small | Director of Athletics | Valparaiso - One Question Leadership Podcast
I asked Valparaiso University Director of Athletics, Dr. Charles Small about how social work concepts fit on campus and specifically within college athletics. He covered the concepts below:
Understanding the balance of the overall support system while being flexible enough to have an individual approach as everyone's experience is different Understanding the capacity within the community to meet the needs of the different subgroups on campus Levels of Practice Micro - Understanding the individual and their identity, as well as their well being within their respective environment. Mezzo - Understanding and identifying small groups based on identities. Macro - Understanding the larger institutions and communities such as athletics department, or the campus as a whole Understanding and implementing Culture Humility - having the humility to maintain self-awareness while respecting and working with others from different walks of life. Dr. Small has a social work background and comes from a family of social workers, so his insight on the 'person in the environment' is excellent. He covers all this in the context of his work at Valpo here on the One Question Leadership Podcast.

Laura Barnard | Partner & Founder | Breakthru Brands - One Question Leadership Podcast
We asked Breakthru Brands Founder, Laura Barnard, about common patterns women face during their leadership journey. The company has worked with over 200 clients, primarily women leaders, to elevate their unique contributions and voices. Based on the data and other studies, Barnard identified two gaps senior women leaders deal with as they progress in their careers:
1. Confidence gap: Senior women leaders are less likely to feel confident in their job performance within their careers.
2. Authority gap: Senior women leaders are less likely to feel heard and trusted in the workplace, they also experience interruptions and doubt in the workplace.
This insight is interesting because one is internal, while the other seems to be external. Barnard goes in depth about these two gaps and much more during her visit to @1QLeadership.
@1QLeadership Question: Have you faced the confidence and authority gaps during your career?
