Bio

Frank Satterthwaite Jr.'s mission as a teacher is to help his students learn how to become the best versions of themselves as leaders in a fast-changing work world that will be filled with many unanticipated challenges and opportunities.

In addition to his formal education (a B.A. in Psychology from Princeton and a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from Yale), Satterthwaite has had wide-ranging real-world experience that includes working in Brazil; being a professional squash player who was also a sports business consultant; working as a planner for NIMH in Washington, DC; doing management consulting in New York; and writing and hosting shows for public television. For the past 18 years, he has also worked part time as an executive coach and trainer.

In addition to teaching leadership courses at JWU, Satterthwaite has written two highly acclaimed professional books: “Becoming a Can-Do Leader: A Guide for the Busy Manager” and “The Career Portfolio Workbook.” He continues to do leadership articles, videos, blogs, webcasts and international presentations for the Association for Talent Development, the world’s premier association for workforce development professionals.
