I revel in applied research around an organization’s most important resource, its people. I enjoy closely working with executive leaders and teams to simplify and streamline data-driven insights to inform people strategies. An additional passion of mine is guiding leadership decision-making and innovation around organizational leadership and culture. I am a fierce advocate for using data to drive meaningful change in people management, selection, development and people analytics to deliver better business outcomes. Aside from academic publications, my research has been featured in various outlets such as the Wall Street Journal and Salon. All in all, I am fascinated by people and dream of a world where they are best set up for success and businesses flourish as a result.

To mark its 10-year milestone, 20 experts from Fast Company Executive Board share the best advice they've ever received from a successful woman in business.
