About Me
My teaching career started when we were stationed in Tokyo, Japan at Yokota Air Force Base (AFB). There was a great demand for English teachers and thus my entrance into the world of education began. While an English Teacher, I became more of a linguist and tutor, for private companies as well as within the Japanese K-12 Education system. What an experience!

With my new found love of teaching, I pursued my master's degree through Troy State University and so the adventure continued. My experience includes on-ground, Flexnet, blended and online modalities within Web CT, Blackboard, and OLS for both undergrad and graduate students. The disciplines taught include: Leadership, Management, Critical Thinking, History, Marketing, Ethics, Organizational Behavior, and Cultural Diversity.

I found myself back in school years later to complete my doctorate, a Doctorate of Management (DM) in Organizational Leadership. During this program, my first book began to crystallize--The Golden Palace Theory of Management, published June '08.

As a result, I found the model the publishing world used to be quite frankly ineffective and inefficient. Having spent a career of asking why and especially why not, I created a new publishing model that shares both the expense and promotion and a new company was born--The Lentz Leadership Institute, and The Refractive Thinker.

I found many others were looking for ways to gain entrance into the publishing world to share their dissertation and other scholarly works. Since form follows function, the idea of a doctoral anthology has taken root, giving birth to The Refractive Thinker, the series (Vol I. published March of 2009).

Now as both publisher and author, I have the honor to serve my colleagues in helping them to share their ideas with the world.

An excerpt from The Refractive Thinker®: Volume I: An Anthology of Higher Learning

The concept of failure: what is it? How do we define it? How are we defined by it? And most importantly, what do we do with it?

The idea of failure is a difficult concept for most, a nebulous intangible that is as different as the person destined to interpret it. Why one may ask? Fear mostly. The idea of failure is at the top of a list of… Continue
