The vision of Grow and Develop is to elevate humanity by educating and encouraging. The site’s mission is to explain, through diverse perspectives, the processes of human development.
Grow and Develop is the work of Don Blohowiak, PhD whose doctorate is in Human Development. As a developmentalist, Don explores the many ways a person evolves and changes over a lifetime. His specialty is psychological change throughout adulthood.
Don’s doctoral dissertation introduced a method for integrating apparently unrelated psychological theories. Its test case proposed bridging the previously presumed unrelated theory of self-actualization by Abraham H. Maslow, and the personal construct psychology of George A. Kelly.
Don also holds a Master’s degree in Human and Organizational Systems, and a Graduate Certificate in Leadership Coaching from Georgetown University. Don has written several management and leadership books, and many articles on change, personal development, and leadership. He has been both a subject matter expert and faculty member for the American Management Association.
Don is an executive coach with senior executive clients throughout the United States. Previously, he led the development of Master’s degrees and graduate Certificate programs with a major university in Washington, DC. He’s also had a successful executive career with Fortune 500 firms, high tech start-ups, and nonprofits, from New York City to Southern California.
