Joshua Guilar
Royal Roads University

I am a professor in the School of Communication and Culture at Royal Roads University. Growing up in Toronto, I earned a doctorate in organizational communication at the University of Oregon. My bachelor's and master's degrees are from Oregon State University. My interest in communication revolves around dialogue and its character in interpersonal communication, in organizational communication and in learning.

Previously I managed a corporate university for Hewlett Packard's largest business unit, where I developed and directed training and development strategies. My most recent book, The Power of Authenticity explores dialogue and integrity in human communication and is published by DeVorss. The Communication Skills Workshop, was published by AMACOM in 2001.

My teaching focuses on dialogue in organizations and in communities. Learning is an encounter with each other, with the content and with our selves. Our work is to prioritize the content of the topic relevant to the needs of students. This is best done with accelerated methods that appeal to the heart and interests of learners. I live with my family in Victoria.
