Feather Communications owner earns Ph.D. in organization and management

COLFAX – Feather Communications owner, Heather Rothbauer-Wanish, has earned her Ph.D. in Organization and Management with an Emphasis in Leadership from Capella University.

While obtaining her Ph.D. and throughout the dissertation process, Rothbauer-Wanish remained focused on leadership and how it helps organizations to propel forward within the marketplace. Her dissertation, ‘Leadership in Economic Development: An Ex-Post Facto Study,’ analyzed how various styles of leadership of Certified Economic Developers affected job growth within specific geographical areas. “It was extremely interesting to discover the role that leadership plays in the success or the failure of strategic goals,” she said. As part of her business, Rothbauer-Wanish has delivered numerous presentations to local chambers of commerce, organizations, and networking groups. She is hoping to expand the workshop and teaching portion of her business to include seminars on leadership and management within the workplace. “I have always enjoyed teaching and now I am ready to utilize my education and personal experiences to help others achieve their leadership goals,” she said.
