update – september 24, 2009

I'm half way through my data analysis.  Hoping to complete this stage of the process by the evening of September 30.  I'm really enjoying the findings, but am looking forward to some free time hopefully by December!!

Some common themes have certainly emerged.  And the good news is that I'm very encouraged personally by the discoveries.  The themes affirm a direction I've been pursing in terms of my own leadership development matrix.

I intend, if God keeps enabling me, to have the analysis done at the end of this month.  The writing of the findings and my literature review will be completed by the end of October.  The first draft of the paper should be done by the end of November.  December will hopefully be spent editing and submitting a final draft by January 15, 2010.  I suspect defense of the dissertation will occur sometime around mid-February.

Thanks for your prayers and support!!
