My name is Oliver (Ozzie) Crocco and this blog is where I write about issues of human and organizational learning, culture, leadership, and everyday life.
I am a lecturer and doctoral candidate in Human & Organizational Learning at the George Washington University (GW) in Washington, D.C. I received my Ed.M. from Harvard University in Human Development and Psychology, and my research interests are in global leadership, organizational change, adult learning, global competence, ethics, higher education, millennials in the workforce, religion and human resource development (HRD), and development in Southeast Asia with a particular interest in Thailand and Myanmar. My dissertation is on organizational development of a community-based enterprise in Myanmar.
Before coming to GW, I taught at Payap University in Chiang Mai, Thailand for four years. During that time I became interested in HRD while working on an organizational development certificate program offered to Myanmar community-based organization workers at the Thai-Myanmar border and inside Myanmar. As an academic, I am passionate about living a meaningful life in service to others through research and teaching.
In my free time I enjoy running, conversations over coffee, reading, writing, cycling, hiking, motorcycling, ultimate frisbee, travel, and meeting new people.

All the best,
