  • Why are you interested in joining Leadership for a New Era? New leadership manpower, and thinking, are needed to support the growth of volunteer-based non-school tutor/mentor programs in high poverty areas. See articles on Leadership at http://www.tutormentorexchange.net

  • What do you hope to contribute to this collaborative initiative? (i.e. share resources for a specific topic, add a new topic, raise questions and ideas, etc.) For more information on how you can contribute content please visit the FAQ's section. I have led a volunteer-based tutor/mentor program for more than 30 years, and have spent many years investigating ways to support high-quality tutor/mentor programs in many locations. I have a retail advertising background with a major corporation, and 3 years experience in US Army Intelligence. I share my ideas and experience on my own web sites and in a variety of other forums where I expand my network.

  • I am interested in the following topics (Leadership and Race, Leadership and Networks, Collective Leadership, Leadership across Difference, Other): Visualization of complex ideas; documentation/accountability system; social network analysis; action-based leadership, networks of purpose, etc.

  • The best word to describe me is: intense

  • What else you should know about me: father of 2; met my wife when she was a volunteer in same program I was leading. I've used computers for communications and organizational efficiency since the early 1980s.


How did you find out about Leadership for a New Era? one of the ning groups I'm part of had a link to this site.

I studied history in college, then spent time in Army Intelligence. In both cases I was learning to collect information and use it to support decision making and actions of myself and many others. I've applied this thinking for more than 40 years. Through the Tutor/Mentor Connection, I've created a library of information and ideas that inspire me, and which I share on the T/MC web sites, so they can be used by others.

One section of the library is titled Process Improvement, Innovation, & Collaboration. There are more than 200 links in this section focusing knowledge management, creativity, innovation, collaboration, mapping and visualization, etc. http://www.tutormentorconnection.org/LinksLearningNetwork/LinksLibrary/tabid/560/language/en-US/Default.aspx

I encourage you to browse these links and apply the tools and concepts in your own development and skills as leaders. If you're focused on helping inner city kids have extra adult support to help them through school and into jobs, then the rest of the information on the T/MC web site would also be useful to you.
Do you find this valuable?
