Cognitive Psychologist & Executive Coach
I coach senior executives and organizational leaders at pivot points and through processes of vision development and capacity building.
I bring to this work extensive experience as director of the Mandel Leadership Institute in Jerusalem and researcher at The George Washington University, The Carnegie Foundation and the University of Washington. My research focuses on how people form identities, create culture and adapt to social change.
I live in Israel, grew up in London, and hold masters’ degrees in Philosophy and Psychology from Cambridge and a doctorate from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Coaching & Consulting
I have coached hundreds of leaders in the business, government and non-profit sectors.
Clients include heads of university departments and research centers; leaders of community and religious organizations; high-tech executives; and government policymakers.
