I am a corporate psychologist. I have a profession that allows me to explore innovative ideas while creating value for executives and shareholders. I believe that psychology can be useful for leaders who are trying to create profitable growth and a positive work experience in our fast-paced and increasingly complex world.
I have a PhD and am Licensed/Registered…so…I don’t do ‘pop psych’, Ouija Boards or Tarot cards. Guess you could say I am a bit of a ‘qualifications junkie’…I am a member of the American Psychological Association, the Society for Industrial-Organizational Psychology, and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I hold the European Certificate in Psychology (EuroPsy) as well as a Diploma in Board Governance.
Currently London-based but originally from Chicago (i.e., a lifelong Cubs fan). I have lived in several different parts of the USA, but most of my life has been abroad, living in London, Budapest, Warsaw and Moscow.
I have had the good fortune to work with senior leaders and their teams across the globe. I started out in academia, moved to consulting but have spent most of my career in the corporate world…. guess that makes me equal parts scientist, practitioner and trusted advisor.
You can expect me to blog about the intersection of psychological science, technological innovation and practical tips for executives about their leaders, teams and organisation’s culture. Don’t be surprised to see the occasional post about gastronomy, music or anaphylaxis.
