Professor Kuchinke's current research focuses on two areas: The education and training of educators working in human resource development settings in for-profit and not-for-profit organizations around the world as these professional lead learning initiatives to foster organizational and individual growth and development. Professor Kuchinke further explores the changing meaning of working as technological, economic, political, and social forces bring unprecedented rates of change to individuals, families, organizations, and countries. In both research areas, Professor Kuchinke is published widely and is a sought-after lecturer and presenter at national and international conferences and universities and organizations around the world.
I teach in the areas of organization and leadership development. My current research interests include the role of work in overall life design, self-directed career behaviors, and cross-cultural differences in career preparation and development.
