1. Hunt, Richard Leo. Overcoming Failure: Characteristics of Leaders Who Have Successfully Recovered from a Significant Setback.

Degree: EdD, Educational Leadership Doctoral Program, 2017, Western Kentucky University

The purpose of this research was to study the characteristics of leaders who have experienced a setback or failure and have bounced back to success. A qualitative research design employing an interpretive phenomenological analysis (IPA) methodology was used. Semi-structured interviews with open ended questions allowed the respondents to share valuable insights into the thoughts, feelings, and perceptions of their individual experiences. The results suggest that after experiencing a setback, a process develops where feelings and thoughts are experienced immediately following the event that is followed by a period of coping and adapting, a transition to a resilient state, and behavioral changes that lead to bouncing back. Advisors/Committee Members: Randy Capps (Director), Tony Norman, and Shane Spiller.
