She is an executive coach, an author, and a speaker specializing in showing people how to transform their lives and work for the better by applying insights from the behavioral sciences (behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience). Her book on that topic – How to Have a Good Day: Harness the Power of Behavioral Science to Transform Your Working Life – has been published in 14 languages and over 60 countries. It was hailed by Forbes as one of their “must-read business books,” described by Fortune as one of their top “self-improvement through data” books, and listed by Inc. magazine as one of the “best 15 leadership and personal development books of the past five years.”
During her twelve years with McKinsey & Company, she co-founded McKinsey’s leadership practice and designed the firm’s approach to transforming senior team dynamics. She also founded and remains a faculty of McKinsey’s flagship training course for senior female executives. Previously, she spent the 1990s working in public policy as an economist at the Bank of England.
She is a frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review and has written on behavioral change topics for the World Economic Forum, Fast Company, Business Insider, Huffington Post, and WIRED.
She is one of Marshall Goldsmith’s ‘MG100‘ coaches, a member of Silicon Guild, a Founding Fellow of the Harvard-affiliated Institute of Coaching, and has degrees in Economics from Cambridge and Oxford Universities. Join me on this episode of the Curve Benders Podcast with Caroline Webb.
