Dr. R. Douglas Waldo, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

After earning a Doctorate in Business Administration (with emphasis on Organizational Leadership), I entered the field of Industrial-Organizational Psychology as the VP of Research, and later as the CEO of a global employment assessment publisher. We did extensive consulting work in the areas of: Human Resources Management, Organizational Behavior, Leadership Development, and Applied Psychometrics. In my consulting, I have worked with some of the largest employers in the world, as well as very small nonprofit organizations. So, I have seen the strategic and organizational challenges, techniques, and opportunities at just about every level. My consulting has covered nearly every aspect of organizational leadership, so I hope to bring that experience to our collaboration as we bridge the theory-practice gap that often exists.I have published several articles and contributed to books and manuals, in addition to authoring a few global assessments that are now part of the Leading Dimensions family. I am certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources Management by the Human Resources Certification Institute and a Certified Senior Professional by the Society for Human Resource Management. I am a member of the Society for Human Resource Management, Society for Industrial-Organizational Psychology, and Christian Business Faculty Association.I look forward to meeting and working with all of you in the coming weeks. Please let me know if I can serve you in any way. I can be reached at: doug.waldo@leadingdimensions.com
