Dr. Eileen Taylor is a Lecturer of Communication and the NFHS Project Director at Butler University, College of Communication, Department of Communication and Media Studies. Her research and expertise in organizational leadership communication with a focus on change and diversity of perspectives is complimented with a Bachelor of Science in Management, MBA, Master of Arts in Advanced Leadership Studies, and Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership. Dr. Taylor earned her credentials from Indiana Wesleyan University. As a First Generation student, she was the first in her family to become a college graduate. At a young 45 years of age, she officially retired as a federal government career professional with 27 years and 7 months of business administration experience that included both human resources and financial management.
Dr. Taylor believes the essence of leadership is communication. She teaches organizational communication, financial management, introduction to human resources management, principles of marketing, leadership and communication, communication ethics, speech for business, and public speaking at the college level.
Dr. Taylor’s professional philosophy is partially rooted in opportunities to live throughout the United States and Europe as a military dependent. At the time, a 5-year residency in Europe was pivotal in preparing Dr. Taylor to embrace the 21st century of globalization where technology continues to transform the method and scope of communication. This inclusive mindset has been the cornerstone of her personal authenticity and work ethics throughout the years. It has helped Dr. Taylor positively influence others in profit and not-for-profit organizations. As a leader and researcher, she inspires others to strengthen their personal foundation of individual values, assumptions, beliefs, and expectations that add value to any organization. The ability to also learn about and understand others who may be different from you are crucial skills in an ever-growing global market.
Organizations benefit from Dr. Taylor's ability to demonstrate theories and practical experiences while she serves as Guest Lecturer, Keynote Speaker, and Professional Trainer. Dr. Taylor's positive leadership perspective may help organizations overcome challenges that become future success stories.Curriculum Vitae
