Simon Dolan is an incredible author, speaker, and professor. His expertise in human resources and organizational management puts him among the greatest thought leaders in those fields today.
Part of Dr. Dolan’s impact stems from his prolific writing career; he has authored more than 70 books in several languages. These books range from professional and self-help books to textbooks and even children’s books, but they all deal with important questions of how to positively influence people.
Dr. Dolan cares deeply about how we lead and influence people, and he believes the most effective way to do so is by using core values to shift culture, change behavior, and develop people. As a result, his academic research centers around values, and his studies have led him to the Managing by Values, Coaching by Values, and Leadership by Values concepts.
Since establishing his theories surrounding the importance of values in work and organizational behavior, Dr. Dolan has been sharing his research and knowledge across the globe as a speaker and teacher. He has also established programs to train and certify coaches in the Coaching by Values style throughout the world. A few of the places you can find the program in action include Spain, Latin America, Italy, Germany, France, parts of Africa, and Singapore.
In addition to his research and work on values, Dr. Dolan cofounded the Global Future of Work (GFOW) Foundation. The foundation aims to prepare workplace stakeholders for the changes that are coming to the workforce, including increased globalization and the ever-changing role of digital technologies in the workplace. Its plan is threefold: to develop effective methodologies and concepts that will benefit the future workforce, to create a network where these methodologies and concepts can be cultivated, and to disseminate this information to create “a better world of work.”
In all of his endeavors, Dr. Dolan ensures that his work is accessible to anyone who wants to learn and understand it. For example, the GFOW Foundation has strong collaborative ties to Asia, North and South America, and Europe. Among Dr. Dolan’s writings you will find books in a stunning array of languages: Spanish, French, Hebrew, Polish, German, Irani, Chinese, and Russian, besides English. And when speaking, Dr. Dolan often shares his knowledge in his audience’s native tongue—he speaks English, French, Spanish, and Hebrew fluently.
Because of Dr. Dolan’s efforts to share his resources (be they books, lectures, tools, or just information) in other languages, those resources can have a much greater reach and impact than they would have if Dr. Dolan kept his work in a primarily English market. The international availability of his work has empowered people across the world with effective tools of leadership and management.
Maybe you’ve noticed a theme here—Dr. Dolan believes it is important to share his knowledge and work with people of all ages, in all countries. Because he also believes in the power of technology-driven education, Dr. Dolan has supported MyEducator’s growth and expansion for many years. He has contributed to several MyEducator resources, including Organizational Behavior in a Global Context and Introduction to Human Resource Management.
And just as Dr. Dolan is passionate about providing his other books in many languages, he has played an integral role in providing MyEducator resources in languages other than English. He has authored several Spanish resources on the MyEducator platform, including Liderazgo y Comportamiento Organizacional, Introducción al Comportamiento Organizacional Internacional, and Recursos Humanos Estratégicos. Additionally, Dr. Dolan and a group of other amazing contributors are working on new resource with MyEducator: The Future of Work. This resource will discuss topics such as work automation, remote work, hybrid work, value-based management, and lifetime education, and will be offered in both English and Spanish.
Dr. Dolan feels strongly about the value of sharing his expertise with people all over the world. (He even offers several of his MyEducator resources at no cost to students!) Because we share his passion for making quality educational resources accessible to students from all walks of life, Dr. Dolan is proud to partner with MyEducator. Because Dr. Dolan is such an influential scholar and powerful advocate for learning worldwide, MyEducator is proud to partner with him.
