Kirsty Spence is an Associate Professor in the Sport Management Department at Brock University where she specializes in teaching and research on organizational behavior, leadership development, and the processes that encourage such development. In 2017, Kirsty received the 2017 Faculty of Applied Health Sciences Excellence in Teaching Award.
Her career started when she worked as a Kindergarten teacher. She discovered the leadership theory through her journey where theory and practice met. This breakthrough happened after eight years of elementary teaching in three different countries.
Kirsty joins me today to share the significance of integrating theoretical and experiential learning in the development of future leaders. She also talks about a kind of developmental framework and explores other factors that play in the deepening of your capacity as a leader. She also shares a valid concern about short-term objectives of CEOs compared to long-term, legacy-leaving objectives that would impact the success of their business.
“It’s not a quick fix. We do change as a result of our experiences and the kinds of development we put ourselves in. ” - Kirsty Spence
