Adam Bouse recently graduated with a Masters of the Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL). He is currently working with an organization called Fishhook, an Indy-based full-service communications agency that helps churches and Christ-centered non-profits communicate clearly, creatively, and consistently.
Why did you decide to pursue a degree in organizational leadership?
Bouse: I wanted to reinforce my experience with a practical master's degree that could help me continue to grow not only as a leader but as a team member myself.
How has the program made you a better leader, person, Christian?
Bouse: My willingness and ability to really empathize and spend time understanding others has increased since going through this program. It’s not that I didn’t realize the differences between how different people see the world before, but I gained fresh insight and an increased appreciation for the value of listening, of understanding others without judgment.
How is this degree applicable to individuals who don’t have a clear career path?
Bouse: Leadership is everywhere. At home, in your church, around the community, and at work. So I think this degree and program is applicable to just about every aspect of life. At the end of the day, leadership is about helping and influencing others toward a shared vision. That shows up at home, with friends, and in business.
Why would you recommend this program?
Bouse: The MAOL program at Huntington is one-of-a-kind. It’s hard to imagine how much you’ll grow as a person, but it’s also an immensely practical program. I felt cared for, connected, and prepared to continue growing in my career. Huntington has really taken a holistic approach in this program, making sure to help each student tailor their goals while they invest in essential skills for a rapidly changing professional world.
