In this episode Eric interviews Jane Halonen from the University of West Florida in Pensacola, FL. We specifically sat down for this interview to discuss Jane’s specialized leadership skills, especially when leading national efforts with many moving parts. We discuss her leadership skills and opportunities, and Bill McKeachie’s memory is infused in much of our conversation. There are always challenges with these types of opportunities, whether national news events, a worldwide pandemic, the small-p politics of the task at hand, and more. Jane leverages her clinical skills and her story-telling ability to help with problem-solving amongst talented academics to complete the major tasks (such as being the lead on the APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major, Versions 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0). He chat about Jane’s high school leadership experiences as well.
