David Lee

David Lee, the founder of HumanNature@Work, works with employers who want to improve employee performance, engagement, and customer service. He has worked with organizations and presented at conferences both domestically and abroad.

An internationally recognized thought leader in the field of leadership, employee engagement and performance, he is the author of nearly 100 articles and book chapters that have been published in trade journals and books in the US, Europe, India, Australia, and China.

In addition to his research and work with both struggling and “best in class” organizations, David Lee’s work draws from a wide range of scientific disciplines including cognitive neuroscience, anthropology, psychoneuroimmunology, trauma and resilience research, and paleopsychology.

Taking this research which typically doesn’t find its way into the business world, David translates these principles of human nature into practical leadership and managerial strategies that optimize employee performance.

Using the popular TV show The Dog Whisperer as an analogy for the difference understanding human nature makes, David’s work helps leaders become “People Whisperers.”
