Neubert is the fourth and last speaker in the Leadership Lecture Series for the fall semester with a presentation on leadership in private enterprise. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Neubert currently teaches organizational behavior and human resources in the Baylor executive MBA programs in Dallas and Austin and principled leadership to Baylor undergraduates. His teaching and research focus is to equip leaders to effectively lead individuals, teams and organizational change.
As the Chavanne Chair, Neubert provides leadership in a variety of ethics initiatives within the Hankamer School of Business. These ethics initiatives include the Annual Ethics Forum, the Ethical Leadership Case Competition, ethics instruction across the curriculum and faculty development in ethics.
Neubert also holds The H.R. Gibson Professorship in Management Development, which allows him to participate in assessing, coaching and training managers and future leaders.
Neubert gained valuable experience as an information systems administrator in a manufacturing environment, as a director/supervisor of a non-profit ministry organization and as a change agent/trainer. As a consultant, he has worked with non-profit educational, healthcare, and ministry organizations as well as for-profit organizations in the telecommunication, software development, petroleum and automotive manufacturing industries. He also is published in several academic and practitioner journals.
The Leadership Lecture Series is aimed at introducing students to the variety and complexity of leadership needs in contemporary society. Each lecture focuses on one of the Academy Leader Development's leadership concentrations: leadership and contemporary social issues, leadership in public life, leadership in the Church and leadership through private enterprise.
