Dr Phil Daughtry is Head of School, Humanities and Social Sciences at Tabor College of Higher education. His staff continue to humour him by pretending that he is in charge. When not acting in his management and teaching role, Phil is happiest when riding his motorbike, supporting Adelaide United soccer club, reading cool books about spirituality, bushwalking, camping, gardening, fishing and spending time with his wife, adult kids, their partners and other special friends.
This is a song that intrigues me
I was born in Ely, Cambridgeshire, England and lived with my family in the small town of Sidcup, Kent, until I was nearly eight years old, then we moved to Australia. I love this sunburnt country, which is my home, and also feel positively connected to the land of my birth and ancestors. I hold both Australian and UK passports.
I am an academic manager, teacher and scholar.
As a manager I aim to cultivate an environment where work is experienced as enjoyable, meaningful, highly stimulating and fun. I believe that laughter, positive traditions and reflective practices are good nutrients to thriving and productivity along with space for dreaming, permission to have a go, clarity of direction and honest feedback.
My teaching practice focuses on educating for the soul. Our world is in desperate need of active/contemplatives, people who offer their gifts and talents from a motivation of love, humility, courage, kindness and respect. In an era of hyper-consumerism and culture wars (e,g, environment vs economy) there has never been a greater need for grounded and compassionate dialogue and the re-framing of what really matters and is worth living for.
In my research I am currently exploring the mysteries of the Labyrinth as a spiritual space and the relationships between vulnerability and effective practice in the human services.
