…thoughts on and about my PhD journey and beyond…

Hi, my name is Heather Davis. I began this blog shortly after I began a PhD study ith the School of Management, RMIT, Australia, in 2008.

It was set up to share this journey—-musings, readings, aha moments etc.

As part of my study, I constructed a speculative typology called Worldly, Sustaining, Leadingful, Relational and Learningful Leadership Literacies to capture some of the significant leadership mindset shifts occuring in the Knowledge Era. These Leadership Literacies were then explored for theoretical resonance and for signs of observation and practice within Australian university leadership.

As a practice-led researcher I made a conscious effort to use web 2.0 and social media as a way of seeking feedback and disseminating information to my communities of practice throughout the study.

  1. I like what you’re doing Heather. I’d like to learn what you’ve found for leadership doctorate options in Australia and what you recommend for making them better, if need be. I’m searching for a program that supports (via faculty interests and research/taught course requirements) my research the arts/writing and leadership to health.


  2. Keep up the good effort, it is its own reward, and no one can take away the experiences you have garnered along the journey….
