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 an Assistant Professor of Leadership and Human Resource Development at Louisiana State University (LSU). I received my Ed.D. from George Washington University (GW) and Ed.M. from Harvard University in Human Development and Psychology. My research interests are in HRD in Southeast Asia, evaluation in HRD, global leadership, organizational change, adult learning, global competence, ethics, higher education, millennials in the workforce, and religion and human resource development (HRD). My dissertation was on organizational development of a community-based enterprise in Myanmar.
Before coming to LSU, I served as a Lecturer of Human and Organizational Learning at GW. I also 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,
