My Doctoral Journey

Week One Org\716

1The first week is complete. Wow! I have had a day to breathe, where my academics are considered. So week one is another week heavy in reading. The requirements include five chapters of text. Do not look at me that way, it was a light week in reading course text… It was the research that equates to several more. Week one I completed three dissertations covering the topics of generational differences, convergences, and workplace productivity. I apologize for the heavy over generalization but, I am just learning to read these literary artworks with any level of confidence.

So it was in the first chapter that I worked diligently to fine-tuned my understanding of organization in organizations. There are clear and practical ties to organization and its relation to success and in that, I realized that I would really enjoy this class. So I kicked back, enjoyed some organic coffee and warm pj’s.

It is always exciting when your coursework pairs you with a  talented author. I have been very lucky in my classes thus far. The reading easily allowed me to feel relaxed and comfortable as I indulged in the leadership guidance. The entire chapter offers direct relevancy to my current operational growth.

For those who follow me, growth this week was insane. Perhaps as a tribute to success I should have gotten a tattoo. I am a talented designer and one of my dearest friends is an amazing digital artist (Mihai HOOM).

 I have so much brilliant news. My network is growing, so we launched a Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ConstantlyCheeky

We made several industry connections and even got to have normal and casual conversations with artists we admire. That is intense, I get excited realizing how comfortable and human the whole situation is. We got 2 new team members!

Greenwald (2008) defined the organization as a process in which people shared understandings and agreements productively accomplishing the goal. My organizations and groups are doing big things! And in truth, many, at the same time. This is exciting and terrifying!

Why? you ask incredulously…. The answer is strange but true. I have worked hard to be here. I have dedicated years to development, self reflection, growth, application, and evaluation. Growth can easily equate to mismanaged organization in the structure. Which could further compound smaller issues. Further complications are added when you remember that many of my groups are multinational collaborations, which means we must organize everything, including time itself.

This week was full of gives and takes. I had to drop a few projects and increase my commitment to to others.

I am elated. This week’s readings played directly into my own organizational development. Chapter 3 reminded me of a fundamental trait of transformational leadership- the engagement and inclusion of staff. Our teams pulled together in a huge way this week. If you haven’t connected to my social media yet, do so and watch my team work. We are literally leaving the windows and doors open for collaboration and learning. My teams are brilliant and dedicated people who really drive the success of our work. Without them, I am just a smart girl with dreams. It is with my teams that I evolve into a business leader and influencer.

My mom used to tell me that “you cant be a leader if no one will follow you; Then you’re just a bossy person demanding attention”.

Greenwald (2008) stated that people are not programmable. This encouraged me to think beyond the box and bring my team back to the table for organizational strategy to ensure our progressive development and success. My team, being the brilliant people they are, did just that. They pulled us through the week and ahead of schedule (as long as you were not discussing my constantlycheeky video). 

During the weekend my computer updated. Something went wrong and I had to system restore to the beginning of “happy-tops” time. Needless to say I posted my technological nightmare to Facebook, it’s funny- you’d laugh.

Overall my applied statement this week is I am learning to balance the pressures of academia and entrepreneurship to leverage developmental growth. It is through the continual reminder of the doctoral demeanor’s commitment to leadership, authenticity, academia, ethics, and humility that I am uncovering and displaying the leader I have trained to become.

My Doctoral Journey

I need coffee. I’m starting ORG/716

1Now I am in the thick of it. And I am not discussing the wonderful Greek or Turkish coffees, that delight one’s mind and provide a serious pick me up. Although, that would be fantastic. I am discussing the appropriate paradigms to guide organizational research.
ORG/716 Organizational Theory and Design. This is my next course. I am excited because it is a research focused course. In this course, doctorate students will learn preparation to analysis, selecting paradigms to guide professional organizational research.  I love research, it is my specialty, and it is exciting to delve deeper into the research involved with constructing a dissertation.
For the aspiring student or prepared student, this post will briefly discuss the course, its expectations, and academic potential. This course is focused on the enrichment of existing research models and the development of new models, to systematically increase organizational performance and efficiency.

As a University of Phoenix student, or aspiring student, the competencies of a course matter. They show what and how you will develop as a student throughout the course. The competencies students’ expect to gain from Organizational Theory and Design are:

The ability to analyze organizational strategies including the ability to determine the most effective methods for organizational and operational design (a). Students will gain the ability to differentiate across the systems paradigms, the roles of power and communication (a). The students will evaluate the impact of power and communication on the productivity levels and organizational efficiency (a). Students can expect to explore trends in organizational theories and in a historical context, exploring the emergence of trends throughout history (a). The student will examine the influence of modern organizational development behaviors to lead organizational research, exploring the interactions between the structure and cultural relationships (a).

The competencies lead the student full circle with the application of the paradigms of thinking into the scholar-practitioner-leader model. The student will apply this thinking to advance organizational challenges and research (a). In the conclusion of the competencies the University student will determine the role and vital relationship of ethics in operations, theory, design, and growth (a).

2So what does it all mean? Glad you asked.

ORG/716 Organizational Theory and Design is an eight week course in the University of Phoenix school of Advanced Studies. It examines the organizational models and their relationships with ethics, communication, power, and trends to determine the best operational efficiency from concept design through to growth stages of operations. There is a strong development in the students’ ability to create and analyze operational strategy from the in-depth consideration and theoretical design of operational success.

In a sentence, The students will use analysis, evaluation, and synthesis to identify and establish the behaviors and relationships of operational success.

We are learning the behavior of successful operations for organizational growth.

 

#WeRise.pngSo, here I go, off to class. Today is day one. I will document the next eight weeks of this course and my professional growth so you can join me on my doctoral journey!

Another Day in a Cheeky Realm 

It has been a while since I’ve checked into my blog. And for that I apologize. I have been busy enjoying life, and then busy still. The new price Rubin website is up, and I am enjoying every moment of every day representing some of the most profound artists I’ve ever met in their online presence. If you’re interested in my work you can look at it at http://www.PriceRubin.com

My teams have changed drastically over this last month. Constantly cheeky is still and will always remain constantly cheeky a support group for aspiring artists and successful business Minds willing to assist. Power music promotions is officially closing down. Our team experience the Pains of growth, and we decided to Branch the company off into two separate organizations, in order to maximize the efficiency of our work. One is Jackie Price marketing. To view this you go to ww.w. JackiePricemarketing.com

The other I will introduce shortly. I am so excited to see you here and to have your support.
In my doctoral journey I have had the last month off. Perhaps that’s why I haven’t been checking into my WordPress as often as I should. In my mind this is an extension of my doctoral Journey. Another very valid reason , is that this last month was the month that I learned my mother was passing last year. In a way I feel like I’ve kind of reclused. I guess we all grieve in our own way. My way just tends to be a little more Inward and less social. 

This blog is an extension of my academic Pursuits and the roadmap for anyone who wants to learn more about what is required of them as a student at the doctoral level. Since the last month I was not active in class, I apologize I wasn’t active here either.

So I start class again on Tuesday. I wanted to check in so the world knew I was still breathing.

On Tuesday I’ll check in again and give the world to run down on my next class, hint it’s statistics. I look forward to seeing you there.
