J.T. O’Donnell is a workplace consultant and career coach who specializes in helping individuals and companies make ‘work’ something to look forward to.
Unlike many career advisers, O’Donnell is a true “field expert.” She works with both individual clients and corporations, giving her access to emerging workforce trends and issues long before they are being discussed in the mainstream. A graduate of Tufts University with a B.S. in Human Factors Engineering, she has more than 15 years of experience, managing, training and coaching people of all ages on a wide variety of career topics.
Founded in 2001, her private coaching practice, J.T. O’Donnell – Career Insights, offers cutting-edge information and resources, as well as products and services, designed to help all those who seek greater professional satisfaction.
One of his early books prompted a government publication to call him a “guru” to White House staffers, and since then, his writings have been published in a dozen languages and have developed a worldwide following, especially in Japan. As founder of The Innovator’s Lab, Dale has engaged in idea generation with dozens of firms, including Georgia-Pacific, United Auto Group, General Dynamics, Caterpillar and NASA.
In addition to “J.T. & Dale Talk Jobs,” Dauten also writes ”The Corporate Curmudgeon.” His work appears weekly in more than 100 newspapers. In 2006, Dale published (Great) Employees Only, in which he takes an inside look at how gifted bosses hire, de-hire and inspire, and shows workers how to emulate their tactics and success.
