Win a Gift Card: Dissertation Study

Hi folks! I'm doing a dissertation study and need your help!

Okay, so it's not ME who needs help... unless I was actually doing another dissertation study.  Then yes, I'd need [psychiatric] help.

My running bud and colleague, with whom I've had the privilege of running a half-marathon, is collecting data for her dissertation study.  Details are below.

Do it for me!  Do it for her, a fellow runner and an awesome person overall!  Do it to help the advancement of workplace studies... and possibly win an Amazon gift card!  (So consider this a giveaway of sorts!!)


I am currently working on my dissertation, which explores the relationship between leadership and organizational inclusion. I am writing to ask for your help.

I would like you to be a primary participant in my research. This means that you will take a questionnaire about some of your experiences with leadership and organizational inclusion which should take approximately 20 to 25 minutes of your time.

Your participation will help me explore facets of organizational life that have not been well-researched. You are truly contributing to a better understanding of organizations. Additionally, you have a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card for your participation!

If you are willing and able to participate, please reply to with the names and email addresses of at least 3 to 5 peer co-workers, who are not your supervisor or your subordinates, who you have known for at least 6 months (I also would ask that at least one of these co-workers be different from you in at least one demographic area, such as race/ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation, if possible). I will then respond with additional information you need to participate. In addition, I will directly contact your co-workers about their participation in this study.

Additionally, if you know of anyone else who would be interested in participating who you are not recommending above, please forward this message to them.

Thank you for your support and assistance.


  1. I wish I could help, as a current PhD student, but I don't officially 'work' -- Best of luck to your friend! And I agree, you would be TOTALLY crazy to write a second dissertation!

  2. Hey LA girl! Thanks so much for the comment and cool to find you blog!! I am sure we will do meetups again if you're ever up for the drive down south! (or a run)

  3. Communication skills include an ability to write clear and understandable I ran across this site texts, speak in front of people and make presentations. And self-preparation is quite difficult here.
