ABOUT THE FOUNDER OF THE BOSS WHISPERING INSTITUTE:

Dr. Laura Crawshaw (aka "The Boss Whisperer®") is the world’s leading expert on coaching abrasive leaders and relieving the organizational disruption and workplace suffering they cause. With more than 35 years’ experience as a psychotherapist, corporate officer, executive coach, researcher and author, she founded The Boss Whispering Institute in 2008, which is dedicated to research and training in the field of coaching abrasive leaders. Through her pioneering work, Dr. Crawshaw has dispelled the myth that leaders who engage in bullying behaviors are incapable of changing their management styles, bringing insight to these individuals and hope to their employers.

Author of Taming the Abrasive Manager: How to End Unnecessary Roughness in the Workplace (The Jossey Bass Management Series) and numerous research articles, Dr. Crawshaw has delivered presentations throughout the United States and internationally to audiences large and small. She has presented to United Nations organizations, NASA, Harvard’s Institute of Coaching, The British Psychological Society, the Organization Development World Summit, and numerous Fortune 500 companies.

Dr. Crawshaw received her master's degree in clinical social work from the Smith College School for Social Work and conducted postgraduate studies at the Seattle Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Harvard Community Health Plan. She subsequently completed a second master's degree and Ph.D. in Human & Organizational Systems at Fielding Graduate University. She founded the Executive Insight Development Group to coach abrasive leaders in 1994, and The Boss Whispering Institute to train others in this specialty practice in 2008.

Dr. Crawshaw is a member of the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations, the American Psychological Association, the British Psychological Society, the Harvard Business Review Advisory Council, the International Association on Bullying and Harassment at Work, and the International Coach Federation.
