Hi - I'm Dr. Patricia Thompson (but you can call me Patricia).
I'm a corporate psychologist and executive coach and I'm passionate about helping the people I work with to be their absolute best at work. Whether I do that through one-on-one coaching or by working with large groups, I love helping people to develop their talents, unleash their authentic selves, and use research-based strategies to fulfill their potential (and help others to do the same).
On the way to getting my PhD in psychology, I was educated at the University of Toronto, Georgia State University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Emory University School of Medicine. Since then, I've been consulting to organizations of various sizes, ranging from small businesses, to big companies like Home Depot, SunTrust Bank, the Girl Scouts, the United Way, Habitat for Humanity, and numerous healthcare organizations, like Baylor Scott & White Health, and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, to name a few.
I also love to provide advice in the media. As a result, I've been featured in the Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Inc., Wharton Business Radio and more. My book, The Consummate Leader: a Holistic Guide to Inspiring Growth in Others...and in Yourself, was endorsed by management gurus, Adam Grant and Marshall Goldsmith.
As someone who loves helping people, I get a lot of personal satisfaction from helping everyone from college students, who are in the process of determining their career paths, to entry level managers who are working on becoming more productive, to CEOs who are determining how best to motivate the people on their team. My mission is to help as many people as possible to become more effective in the workplace.
Dr. Thompson has been featured in a range of media outlets.

"This course was wonderful. I started it after a life changing event happened to me, and I feel much more adept at recognizing behaviors in myself and others. I came to see a lot of my personal faults in the span of this course and I know I can actively correct and change them. This course is fantastic and I recommend it to anyone who is looking to become a better listener, a more appreciative person to themselves and others around them."
