Brainard Strategy Lends Expertise to Alliant International University’s Ph.D Program

Mar 1st, 2012Comments Off on Brainard Strategy Lends Expertise to Alliant International University’s Ph.D Program

On February 27, 2012, Jennifer Konkin visited Alliant International University‘s San Diego campus to share her unique perspective and experience in leadership development and consulting. In addition to her responsibilities as a Brainard Strategy consultant, Ms. Konkin is a Ph.D candidate at Alliant in Consulting Psychology. Having already received her M.S. from Alliant in that same field of research in 2007, she was invited back to Dr. John Renner’s Organizational Development class to discuss the spectrum of transition between student/scholar to professional consultancy.

Ms. Konkin’s discussion utilized industry-leading models and methods that are useful for recruiters and employment seekers alike. For example, one topic of focus was on the Arbinger Institute’s approach to leadership development and how it applies to leveraging existing knowledge and self awareness into applied skills through through on-the job experience.

Such a speaking engagement enriches and renews the longstanding relationship between Alliant International University and Brainard Strategy. Michael Brainard, principal of the firm, completed his Ph.D in Industrial Organizational Psychology at Alliant in 2009. Our most recent hire, Junior Associate Matt McDonald, is also a recent graduate from the school.
