John Hardman, PhD

John is a senior instructor in the Department of Educational Leadership at Florida Atlantic University, where he teaches master’s- and doctoral-level courses in the school leadership and adult and community education programs. He chairs the College of Education Diversity Committee and serves on the University’s Diversity Platform Council. He is currently one of four project coordinators of a Wallace Foundation $5.8 million grant designed to develop a fully revised master’s degree in educational leadership in partnership with the Florida Department of Education and the public school districts of Broward, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, and Martin counties in Southeast Florida. At the heart of the new program is the preparation of school leaders as reflective, critical systems thinkers who are committed to the ideals of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice in the service of their schools and communities.

John is the founder of Regenerative Organizations, a process consulting firm that specializes in regenerative leadership coaching and training and facilitating the shift of organizations toward sustainability and regenerative practice in business, community, and education. This work is based on original research conducted with highly effective leaders in organizations that are creating new organizational paradigms in entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, government, industry, and education.
