Biography

Dr. Kathryn Goldman Schuyler is Professor Emeritus of Organization Development and teaches courses in ethics, leadership, and sustainability. She has many years of experience in leadership development, organizational consulting, research, and somatic learning. Over the past fifteen years, she has mentored many graduate students who have completed research under her guidance and moved on in their careers to increasingly influential roles in major companies, start-ups, and universities.

Kathryn has published widely on leadership and change and is the author of INNER PEACE–GLOBAL IMPACT (IAP-2012), and the lead editor of LEADING WITH SPIRIT, PRESENCE, AND AUTHENTICITY (Jossey Bass/Wiley, 2014), and CREATIVE SOCIAL CHANGE: Leadership for a Healthy World (Emerald, 2016). Her recent research focuses on awareness and mindfulness at work: her published work in this area highlights how being fully present enhanced participants' connectedness with others and with the natural environment and renewed their sense of purpose in their work.

Kathryn earned her Ph.D. at Columbia University (NY) as a sociologist and has studied with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, who developed a sophisticated approach to somatic system learning. In addition to her teaching and research in organization development, she a somatic educator, helping children and adults with moderate to severe neuro-motor challenges to move, learn, and live fully. She has studied mindfulness and awareness with HH the Dalai Lama, Mingyur Rinpoche, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, and other masterful teachers of meditation. Kathryn and her husband, a composer, live overlooking San Francisco, a view that encourages them to pause and appreciate gleaming sunsets and foggy mornings, the calls of ravens and the circling of hawks, and the sparkling city lights.
