Kristen Wheeler – Evolution of a job hater

For the last 31 years, Kristen has been researching questions about being human – and in particular, “How does one know what to be when they grow up?” Starting with herself as the primary subject, she has inquired through the lenses of psychology, business, religious traditions and the arts. She started her career as a CPA and software developer for Accenture and later completed advanced degrees in mythology and body-centered psychology. Since 1990, she has consulted with companies about the intersection of human thriving and organizational performance.

    Kristin: Congratulations! I enjoyed watching your TED thang.

    I’m wondering if we could organize an hour or two of “official consultation” to address my conflicts and problems working at Smith. We touched on them at dinner in September over dinner, but I’d like to make this a deliberate effort, to try to enlist your wisdom and expertise in sorting out my situation working in academia, so as to simply enjoy my life more, while keeping this job, perhaps.

    Thoughts? Ideas? Propositions? I’m happy to pay you for your time.
    love, Mike
