According to Jorge Haddock, dean of the School of Management, change focuses on behavior, whereas transformation focuses on “beingness” or culture. Haddock will explain this rationale in the next lecture of the Vision Series, titled “Transformational Leadership.”

The lecture will take place on Monday, April 1, at 7 p.m. in the Center for the Arts Concert Hall on the Fairfax Campus.

Tickets are not required, and a reception with light refreshments will follow the lecture.

In the lecture, Haddock will explain how transformational leadership and the shifting of organizational conversations or interpretations can create different results and outcomes.

Haddock combines his administrative position with research, and he has written or co-written more than 70 publications. He is also the co-inventor of the patent “Method of System for Providing Credit Support to Parties Associated with Derivative and Other financial Transactions” and a former consultant to Mackie Designs, CSX World Terminals, Citibank and Jiffy Lube.

In 2009, Haddock received the Virginia Hispanic Educator of the Year Award from the Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

He has a BS in civil engineering from the University of Puerto Rico, an MS in management engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a PhD in industrial engineering from Purdue University.
