Dr. Stan Boddie
Doctor of Management in Organizational Leadership, 2006
Dr. Stan Boddie was working in information technology and was enrolled in an engineering master’s program when he took the Myers-Briggs personality assessment. He was surprised by the results, which indicated his personality was compatible with that of a university professor. It led him to explore the idea of teaching where he discovered his true passion.
Stan was working full time as an IT program manager for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Curious to see if the personality assessment was correct, he applied for an adjunct faculty position at a local university and began teaching.
It didn’t take long for Stan to realize that he had found his true passion and he hasn’t looked back since. He’s been a professor of systems management at the U.S. National Defense University Information Resources Management College (IRM). He was even honored as the 2007 IRM College Faculty of the Year. He earned his doctoral degree and says the program helped him to achieve career success.
“My doctoral experience has been phenomenal. It helped me understand what it means to be a transformational leader. This knowledge plus the confidence I have gained has transcended all aspects of my life.”
