ABOUT #FRIDAYNIGHTCHATS W/
DR. KAREN LOVE, PH.D.

The Background

Fern Plant

The purpose of #FridayNightChats (#FNC or FNC) is to thread Organizational Leadership throughout a full spectrum of industries. Thank you to both Judson University and the Love Family Christian Foundation for providing me with both inspiration and context for affecting change. 

​​

What is Organizational Leadership? Is it Human Services or Leadership Development? How does this discipline in  Organizational Leadership teach us Strategy, Data Mining, Cultural Competency, Applied Decision Making, and Intergenerational Challenges? How does this discipline teach us how to identify patterns and trends; identify deficiencies in the process; communicate effectively; create a narrative for C-Level individuals? How does Organization Leadership equip and prepare us for  C-Level Status?  These are some of the questions I grappled with in my pursuit of my Ph.D. and currently as Program Chairperson in Organizational Leadership at Judson University and Vice-Chair of the Love Family Christian Foundation. 

 

Through the #FNC platform, leaders from diverse sectors share their leadership development expertise, team dynamics, organizational culture, strategy, data mining, cultural competency, entrepreneurialism with the diversity of thought, dynamism, and change. Our Spring/Summer 2020 topics for discussion were Leading Intelligent Teams. Leadership and the Law. HR Management. Toxic leadership. Leading Global Teams. Women in Supply Chain Management. Innovation. Ethics. Leading the Generation Z cohort. Union Leadership. Eight Strategies to a successful business. Emotional Intelligence and Wellness Strategies. Healthcare in America. Technology Intelligence. Organizational Leadership - Discovering your uniqueness by embracing your weakness. The spring faculty consisted of both domestic and international graduates from the University of Washington State, University of Illinois, University of Miami Law School, DePaul University, Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, MIT, University of Wisconsin, IIT, Vanderbilt, University of Chicago, Harvard University, Duke University, University of Phoenix, Hampton University, the University of Central Michigan and Judson University. FNC's composition of faculty includes Lawyers, MBAs, Ph.D.'s. Supply Chain Management, Nursing Informatics, and Project Managers.

Many are working for Fortune 500 companies. There are several authors, motivational speakers, and TEDx McHenry and TEDX Zurich guest speakers. This cadre of leaders provides professional expertise for those seeking to gain a broader understanding of Organizational Leadership. Now, it is time to pivot. What can we do differently? Questions for the Fall 2020 Faculty are the following: How do we… …create an environment conducive to growth, development, and empowerment? …teach our people to dream beyond the immediate circumstance? …foster an atmosphere of excellence in this digital age? What strategies are fully vetted, implemented, and supported by higher-level management for attaining high and ethical performance? Let's Discuss!

05.07.02021 - Building a Legacy of Leadership, Love, and Excellence

Thank you, Enoch Love for teaching us the value of hard work, determination and being confident in the plan God has for you.  There were so many life lessons in this discussion. Here's what I heard you say. 1. Have a strategy. Without direction, you waste valuable time and resources. 2. Do your research to understand the operations, culture complexities, corporate structure and its underpinnings, so that you can make informed choices; never to be led to confusion, but to control your destiny. 3. When ever time, and opportunity presents itself, be prepared to rebrand. 4. Always answer the WHY? 5. Satisfy your thirst for knowledge, wisdom, leadership, positioning and serving others.   Thank you, Rev. Shirl Love for teaching us that it's okay to be broken, as long as God is in the midst preparing you, building you, and strengthening you for His Glory. Here are some of the wisdom nuggets I pulled from your interview. 1. Never let man distract, discourage or diminish all that God has in store for you. 2. Trust God to build eternal confidence in your soul so that you can serve the outer most reaches of the earth. 3. Do not allow the world to dictate or control the vision God has given you. 4. Never fear ministering to what the world label as the 'least of these.' 5. Serve with an open heart. 6. Always remember that God is the originator of this symphony. He composes, arrange, and aligns the harmony and dissonance in your life. Celebrate the path, 'the road to Damascus moments', knowing that God will harmonize each chord of dissonance, building unrealized crescendo, so that you will conquer all that he has planned for His Glory.   Thanks to Enoch and Rev. Shirl Love Thank you both for teaching us the importance of valuing our relationships. Thank you for teaching us that ministry and business partnerships can work with God in the Center.  From business operations to ministry service, your legacy and love will be shared for generations to come.  God Bless.
