AFFILIATE

Eric is a people strategist with significant experience in the areas of organizational change, training and development, and employment practice development. He has translated his passion for human behavior into an 18-year career working for such noted software companies as MathWorks, HubSpot and WorldCare Inc. For many years Eric’s role involved helping employees deal with the “.com” bust of the early 2000’s. This intersection of innovation and failure was a rich place to grow professionally. Eric became passionate about Design Thinking after reading, “The Creativity Crisis”, Newsweek 2010. He found this new definition of creativity to be unique and loaded with potential for innovation in the corporate world. He has a BS in Music, and an MBA in Design Thinking from California College of the Arts. He is also certified in Meyers Briggs and is a Level 1 & 2 certified Emotional Intelligence facilitator. Eric is a fan of Carol Stanford and believes that her research and writing about sustainable business is the future of work. It is Carole’s quote, “…developing employees is about drawing out, lifting up, and developing the inherent capacity of people to lead and create” which he finds best describes his point of view in his work.

Eric is based out of Nashville, TN.
