Mr. Hartl's professional interests include organization development, process consultation, organizational behavior, strategic leadership, and conflict resolution. He describes his teaching philosophy as, "helping students discover and appreciate how they learn and solve problems. This form of self-understanding is best achieved through experiential learning and the clinical application of theories. Therefore, my students often work in the field or with actual client groups in our classrooms. I want to help students develop mastery of the subject matter they study. Tomorrow's leaders must be capable, innovative and persistent; I believe our graduates are well-suited to those demands." In his spare time, Mr. Hartl enjoys distance running, backpacking, and fly-fishing. He also is an active consultant to organizations of all sizes and sectors.
