“How far do you want to GO; how good do you want to BE!”
Creative Adventures Consulting is a small consulting firm dedicated to building our client’s learning capabilities, and supporting the learning endeavors and transformational journey of individuals, teams, organizations, and communities.
The Dissertation Consulting division supports graduate students in completing their thesis or dissertation by providing a unique profile of dissertation coaching and consulting services tailored to the developmental needs of each person based on an assessment of their knowledge and skills in key competency domains, matched with their own personal and professional goals and their graduate program’s expectations. Our focus tends to be wholistic, and is particularly well-suited to those professionals or academics oriented towards a scholar-practitioner perspective who serve as advocates for evidence-based practice and research that addresses real-world situations.
Are you experiencing frustration, are you stalled, or anxious about making progress in completing your dissertation or thesis? We can HELP!
Creative Adventures Chief Learning Officer and Senior Consultant Dr. Richard Flor brings 20+ years consulting to researchers and mentoring doctoral students, including nearly 10 years serving as a dissertation proposal reviewer for both scientific merit and research ethics as a member of a University Institutional Review Board (IRB).
At Creative Adventures, we believe that learning—the ability to do something today that we were unable to do previously—is one of the most fundamental and empowering dimensions of being Human, and that our ability to take pride in our learning and accomplishments, and to do so with compassion towards others and humility for ourselves, are central to our work. We believe that it is important to help our clients achieve their goals, in part, by helping them uncover and explore their innate curiosity and creative intellect, and invite them to engage in learning as a creative adventure!
Are you seeking more in-depth or timely feedback, coaching, or support? Our thesis and dissertation consulting services focus on helping YOU develop the knowledge and skills to succeed!
While we support those who are looking to address specific aspects of their thesis or dissertation, and can provide relatively quick solutions for many common problems that graduate students face through a solution-focused root-cause analysis, our vision looks towards developing scholar-practitioners who serve as advocates for evidence-based practice in managing the complexities faced by professionals in the 21st Century through their work as leaders, decision-makers, management professionals, consultants, educators, counselors / psychologists, researchers, and others whose work is based on the social, behavioral, organizational, or management sciences.
We are uniquely positioned to support the 21st Century scholar-practitioner, who strives to bridge the gap between theory and practice through the use of research and disciplined inquiry in creating actionable knowledge to address real-world situations with the goal of bringing about positive change and improvement in their profession, organization, or in the lives of those with whom they work or serve. While we recognize and support the need for more basic, theoretical research—including laboratory and true experimental research–we are particularly well-equipped to support those who are pursuing more applied research including mixed-methods research based in a pragmatic philosophic tradition, action research, appreciative inquiry, program evaluation, policy analysis, and quasi-experimental research in field settings, as well as those who are looking for more in-depth, focused consultation and mentoring by working with an experienced dissertation coach and expert methodologist.
Do you have questions that your advisor / chair or committee is unable to answer, or want to go deeper than they can support you to go? We have answers and solutions, and are prepared to go the distance with you as your personal dissertation coach!
Our dissertation consulting services include a full-range of consulting, training, and dissertation coaching services, including help with research design, proposal development, data analysis, writing support, and editing, geared towards your specific needs and goals, from the relatively basic common problems that many graduate students face, up through 1-on-1 coaching for those want or need more comprehensive support or deeper mentoring.
We also serve faculty seeking to take their knowledge and skills to higher levels in support of their roles as thesis or dissertation chair, researcher, and instructor. It’s been our experience that many faculty have gaps in their own competencies with respect to foundational knowledge in such areas as research philosophy, research design, data / statistical analysis, scholarly writing, and in their knowledge and skills in serving as a dissertation chair and instructor. We can offer a full-range of faculty and professional development opportunities that are assured to take not only beginning faculty and researchers to the next level developmentally, but any doctoral-level professional to new levels of understanding of and appreciation for the world of the 21s Century Scholar-practitioner, researcher, and advocate for evidence-based practice.
At Creative Adventures, our dissertation consulting services help you explore both the science and art of research and scholarship! Speak with a dissertation coach today to explore how we can help you accomplish your goals!
