I am a psychologist & coach, committed to helping individuals & teams thrive at work. I hold a firm belief that we under-value key elements that impact both work life and organizations. This includes core stability — and its role in building productive work lives.

I began blogging with the hope of bringing work-focused psychological research to a broader audience. In 2012, I became a Charter Member of LinkedIn Influencer program, among 150 other invited experts — offering advice on work, organizations and career. My opinions can also be found at The Wall Street Journal, Talent Zoo, US News & World Report, The Huffington Post, The Muse and The World Economic Forum blog.

My coaching practice focuses upon building both individual and organizational capabilities.

I earned a B.S. degree in Psychology from Michigan State University and a Ph.D. in Industrial & Organizational Psychology from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. I completed an internship at the Burroughs Corporation (now Uniysis) — and have worked with organizations in the auto, education, technology, hotel & non-profit sectors.
