Giving Voice To The Tortoise In Our Hare Brained World with Dr. Robert H. Lengel
Dr. Robert H. Lengel holds a BS and MS in aerospace engineering, an MBA, and a PhD that blended oceanography, environmental management, leadership and organizational dynamics in business. His career began designing jet and rocket propulsion systems, and meandered through fluid computer design and industrial sales, a stint on Wall Street, time in an environmental think tank, academics, consulting and now writing. In his 32-year tenure in the College of Business at UTSA, he founded and directed the Center for Professional Excellence and the UTSA Executive MBA (EMBA) program. The Center served as what he calls a ‘front porch’ where academics and executives could engage in dialogue to align their research and practice interests for their mutual benefit. His research work in developing the concept of ‘media richness’ has been referenced over 10,000 times in scientific and practice journals. Building on this research and his eclectic background, he has been a pioneer in blending the first-person languages of the arts and humanities with the third-person languages of the sciences and engineering to deepen our understanding of leadership and communication theory and practice.
Over the years, he has worked with thought leaders as varied as management gurus Stephen R. Covey and Tom Peters, poet David Whyte, pianist Michael Jones, and actor Richard Olivier (Lawrence Olivier’s son). The EMBA that he led for 18 years was a creative approach to combining the technical aspects of business with the human aspects of living a meaningful life. He is the co-author with Dick Daft of Fusion Leadership: Unlocking the Subtle Forces that Change People and Organizations and author of The Front Porch Revolution: Reclaiming the Time and Space to Slow Down, Talk to Each Other, and Lead in an Over-Managed World. #heart #brainpower
