Food scholarships could help more students finish college (11:51) Daphne Hernandez, Ph.D., earned her PhPh.D.in Applied Developmental & Educational Psychology at Boston College. She is currently an assistant professor in the department of health and human performance at the University of Houston. Her research is centered around family-related factors, such as poverty and family structure, and their influence on food insecurity/food assistance program participation (i.e. indicators of poverty) and obesity. With the cost of a college education rising more and more students are struggling to make ends meet. As a result, some students are going hungry and that makes it incredibly difficult for them to focus and succeed in school.  Dr. Daphne Hernandez believes campus hunger is a significant factor behind inequality in college completion rates, and that “food scholarships” may be a solution.  How to Lead when you Lack Authority (58:43) Clay Scroggins is the lead pastor of North Point Community Church, providing visionary and directional leadership for all the local church staff and congregation. Clay works for Andy Stanley and understands firsthand how to manage the tension of leading when you’re not in charge. Good leadership begins in one place. Yourself. If you we can learn to lead ourselves, we will have the knowledge and confidence to lead others, even if we do not have the title that is so often associated with it. Clay Scroggins, author of the book How to lead when you are not in charge, teaches us how we can lead ourselves and become great leaders.  The Mind of the Leader (1:44:48) Jacqueline Carter is an International Partner and the North American Director for Potential Project. She has over twenty years of experience working with organizations around the globe to enhance effectiveness and improve performance. She is also the co-author of the book “The Mind of the Leader”. When some people think of leaders sometimes the phrase, “they talk the talk but can they walk the walk” comes to mind. With high expectations leaders are put into a different class because of their status. When stress mounts and deadlines hit, they are pushed to the brink. In her new co-authored book Jacqueline Carter takes us inside the mind of a Leader and shows what the most important quality they can have.
