…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. Hi Heather

    It’s been a huge 6 months

    I’m drowning in the last stages of my PhD and came across your website – serendipity! (I was chasing up a reference for Piantanida and Garman.

    Hope all goes well – email when you are available for a coffee


  2. Good look Heather. I hope hearing from you for the book 🙂
    All the best
