Two FHSU leadership faculty author article in "Journal of Organization Leadership"


Dr. Curt Brungardt, director of Leadership Studies at Fort Hays State University, and Dr. Chris Crawford, assistant professor of leadership studies, have written an article on leadership titled "Encouraging Corporate Revolutionaries: Moving Beyond Classical and Progressive Leadership."

The article will be published in the Journal of Organizational Leadership. It was accepted for the inaugural issue of the journal.

The article is a follow up to Brungardt and Crawford's book, "Risk Leadership: The Courage to Confront and Challenge." The theory behind risk leadership focuses on bottom-up empowerment. This book is marketed to college professors around the United States.

They have also co-authored many articles together, including "Organizational Innovation: Understanding of Agents of Technological Influence" and "In Search of True Empowerment: Risk Leadership Theory."

Crawford is publishing another book this summer called Maximum Team Performance. This book is designed for anyone seriously interested in dramatically improving teams.
