Houston resident, Dr. Anthony Obi Ogbo is the publisher of Houston-based International Guardian, and the facilitator of the American Journal of Transformational Leadership. He is an author of many books and journals, including “Influence of Leadership,” a book on politics, leadership, and psychology.
Dr Ogbo’s research interests focus on the fields of management and leadership as they apply to all academic disciplines, including human capital, business administration, organizational leadership, health, applied econometrics, and development economics. His interests are borne out of necessity, to convey the meaning and values of leadership, and facilitate an environment to breed transformational leaders of today for tomorrow’s success. His book, “The Influence of Leadership” for instance, is a replication of one of his research studies – a phenomenological study of Nigerians living through leadership imperfections. The study results uncovered fundamental leadership gaps in management, discussed the implications, and offered constructive mitigation strategies.
One of his latest studies focuses mainly on knowledge-sharing processes in Houston community media organizations and the effects of diversity in teams and groups on performance effectiveness. This study sponsored by the American Journal of Transformational Leadership not only aimed at developing relevant approaches to assess knowledge sharing in the team process, but also in exploring intervention strategies to expand and improve them.
