Welcome to The Refractive Thinker®: An Anthology of Higher Learning. Thank you for joining us on our maiden voyage to celebrate the accomplishments of these doctoral scholars affiliated with the University of Phoenix School of Advanced Studies.
The purpose of this anthology is to offer a glimpse into the scholarly works of these authors. The intent is to provide a forum for them to share their thoughts and expertise as they contribute to the expanse of knowledge in pursuit of the tenets and philosophies of higher learning.
The title of this book, The Refractive Thinker® was chosen intentionally to highlight the ability of these doctoral scholars to bend thought, to converge its very essence on the ability to obliquely pass through the perspective of another. The goal is to ask and ponder the right questions; to dare to think differently, to find new applications within unique and cutting edge dimensions, ultimately to lead where others may follow or to risk forging perhaps a new path all entirely.
Leaders ultimately change the world simply by questioning the very process of thought and life itself. They are insatiably curious, never satisfied or content with what is, always looking to the horizon and asking the fundamental question of why— with the goal to perhaps arrive at a better place than where they began—forever changed by the very act of asking questions. They dare to question themselves and ask why not? And what can they do to be an agent of change? The Refractive Thinker® offers this discourse, a place where these authors offer a chapter of their work so the audience can sample a mere bite of the apple with the hope of being given a broader canvas from which to paint further.
I invite you to join with me as we venture forward to showcase these authors of the first edition with our eye toward future editions as a forum to share more of the esteemed work of these colleagues and future authors. The goal is to offer a chance to bring to publication more ideas from which the audience may be interested in the expertise and guidance that they offer.
Please contact me for further information regarding these authors and the works contained within these pages. Perhaps your organization may be looking for their expertise to incorporate as part of your annual corporate meetings as a key note or guest speaker(s), perhaps to offer individual or group seminars, or require their expertise as consultants.
We look forward to your interest in discussing future opportunities. Let this be our beginning to which The Refractive Thinker® will serve as our guide to this and future editions.
