Leadership Principles by Christin Upshaw

I am busy grading self-reflective introductory speeches and working out my course structure for October (by re-reading Nancy Duarte’s Resonate), but I’d like to share a deck of the day with you. Today’s deck comes from Christin Upshaw, friend, colleague, and superteacher, who taught an amazing course on leadership and organizational behavior during her time at Full Sail. Her students often commented on what an amazing class it was, and we quickly became superteacher comrades joining forces to ensure presentation awesomeness. Christin moved on to a leadership position as Vice President of New Business & Product Development at Integrated Loyalty Systems in Austin, Tx, where she works to bring awesomeness not only to her organization but to her community. Check out her slideshare.net presentation titled “Leadership Principles.” Christin’s use of type has always inspired me–she makes it so engaging and immersive! Notice how many of these principles are also those that great communicators should follow.

Design Envy: Rebooting my Curriculum Vitae

So, I admit it, I suffer from design envy or slide envy, one of Alex Rister’s 7 Deadly Sins of Design. I can’t help it. I see something, I want it. I want to be able to make it and do it. So, when my friend Christin sent me her amazing new resume, I had to find a way to adapt her style to my traditional CV. I’ve agonized over colors, fonts, layouts, content, phrasing, and punctuation. After a week and a half of gut-wrenching work, I give you the first working draft of my new CV. Phew!
