    Letter from the Editor:

    Our current volume is on The Physics of Leadership and Organizational Structure. Several features make this a truly special issue.
     
    It is organized like a mash-up between the old Psychological Monographs (that featured an in-depth conceptual article on a radical rethinking of a core issue) and the new Industrial and Organizational Psychology: Perspectives on Science and Practice journal (that features focal articles with commentary from leading thinkers).
     
    The focal article, “Leadership and Organizational Behavior: A Thermodynamic Inquiry,” is a tour de force by Dick Kilburg and Marc Donohue exploring how models of atomic structure and bonding forces can be used to model leadership influence and organizational structure. This is an ambitious piece that will stretch your thinking.
     
    To help interpret this thermodynamic inquiry, the issue includes brief commentary articles by leading leadership scholars including Bruce Avolio, Robert Hogan, Ted Hayes, Jim Hazy, Russ Marion, and Mary Uhl-Bien along with three former Presidents of the Society for Consulting Psychology, Vicki Vandaveer, David Brewer, and Amy Owen Nierberding.
     
    To access electronic copies of the articles at APA’s psycnet database, click the link below. (Access requires a subscription, or you can also purchase the issue and individual articles.)

    http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/cpb/66/3/
     
    And please do pass along this update to anyone who may be interested in what’s happening at the frontiers of thinking in consulting psychology.
     
    Here’s to a terrific New Year in 2015,

    You are invited to a free APA Convention Continuing Education (CE) Session

    Title
    Designing and Delivering Quality Educational Presentations

    Who Should Attend
    This workshop is for professionals who deliver educational programs that include presentations.

    Description
    While historically there has been a wide and consistent practice of having an expert deliver presentations by conveying information verbally, recent research on best practices in education suggests there are many ways to improve learning outcomes from presentations.

This workshop will introduce a range of practices to improve educational presentations to maximize participant learning.

    Time & Place
    August 7, 9:00 – 11:50 a.m.
    Marriott Marquis, Treasury Room, Meeting Level 4
