About Dr. Gottschalk


Industrial & Organizational Psychologist. Worklife Strategist. Blogger.

I write about life, work & productivity.

My work often focuses on building stability. I believe that stability leads to so many great outcomes in work life — including healthy teams, creativity and innovation. (You can read more about this in my post at The Harvard Business Review.)background-2

Core stability really gets to the heart of things. To the elements that must be present for people & organizations to thrive.

The foundation of our work.

The secret sauce.

Make sense?

I’ve worked with clients representing the auto, education, technology, hotel & non-profit sectors, where I have helped leaders face obstacles and help teams get unstuck.  An avid blogger, I am a charter member of LinkedIn Influencer program, where I’ve built a following of 2+ Million. My perspectives on work life have also been shared at The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Talent Zoo, US News & World Report, The Huffington Post, The Muse and The World Economic Forum blog. 

I hold a B.S. in Psychology from Michigan State University and a Ph.D. in Industrial & Organizational Psychology with a minor concentration in multivariate statistics, from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.
