Congratulations to our very own faculty member, Dr. Geoffrey VanderPal, who recently co-authored a book!

“As a faculty member who recently co-authored a book, titled, The Steadfast Leader, published by McGraw Hill Professional. It is not a rehash of previous leadership-based books. Business leaders today face unprecedented challenges―and it’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed by the sheer number and complexity of nonstop decision-making. To further complicate matters, you may believe that some decisions require rational (brain) decision-making, while others call for you to “go with your gut.” In The Steadfast Leader, you’ll discover that integrating the two―brain and gut―will help you become the calm, steadfast, and powerful leader you want to be. It uses the Polyvagal Theory and the latest Neuroscience as a foundation to enhance leadership and business decision-making effectiveness.”
