    Patrick Chadd: Everyone Has a Voice

    In this episode Cynthia speaks with Patrick Chadd, Associate Dean of eLearning at Camden County College. Patrick's fascinating journey to leadership started with nearly 20 years in the military and law enforcement, after which he took the path much less traveled to web design, instructional design, and finally to higher education. Along the way he earned an M.Ed. and Ed.D. He defines his leadership as participative leadership, maintains a guiding principle that "everyone has a voice," and holds firm belief--backed by his own research--that diversity leads to better decisions.

    Tiffany Grunert: It's Not About You, It's About the Team

    In this episode Cynthia speaks with Tiffany Grunert, the President and CEO of Morris Animal Foundation. Tiffany's very intentional leadership style is focused on culture, teams, and empowerment. While empowerment is a term that can make some leaders shudder, Tiffany outlines the strengths of an intentional approach. As she explains, clear values, strong interdependence between teams, and the space to make mistakes can empower others in service of the mission of the organization, which drives engagement and performance. In addition to the discussion of leadership style, a good portion of the conversation focuses on organization culture, and that HOW you achieve something is as important as WHAT you do.
