Dr. Gleb Tsipursky is the CEO of Disaster Avoidance Experts, LLC, a boutique consulting and training firm empowering leaders and organizations to avoid business disasters. With more than two decades of experience in speaking, consulting, and coaching on these topics, Gleb is known for adapting cutting-edge research to everyday business reality.
Gleb began his career as a scholar of behavioral science and rose to the level of a tenure-track professor at the Ohio State University, publishing dozens of peer-reviewed articles and two peer-reviewed monographs. While pursuing his scholarly career, he began to speak about decision-making and emotional and social intelligence outside of academia. His engaging, insightful, and highly interactive keynotes and seminars drew widespread acclaim and top marks from audiences, leading to speaking engagements at prominent associations and companies.
Forward-looking leaders soon began to hire Gleb as a consultant and executive coach before launching major new projects, to improve current processes and team culture, and to avoid future catastrophes; based on this success, Gleb co-founded Intentional Insights.
Gleb’s ability to communicate research-based strategies clearly and eloquently, and adapt them to business realities, resulted in the No. 1 Amazon bestseller, “The Truth-Seeker’s Handbook: A Science-Based Guide.” He was featured in over 400 articles in a variety of venues, such as Inc. magazine, Time, Newsweek, Scientific American, Psychology Today, The Conversation, Salon, Business Insider, Government Executive, Lead Change Group, New York Daily News, Chicago Tribune, The Plain Dealer, The Dallas Morning News, Sun-Sentinel, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Buffalo News, The Business Journals, Inside Higher Ed, The Huffington Post, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, and Fast Company. He appeared in over 350 guest interviews, including U.S. televised appearances on CBS News and internationally on the Australian Broadcasting Network; U.S. and international radio appearances, including on NPR, WBAI, KGO, 700WLW, KRLD, AM980, KCRW, KSKQ, KXNT, KTRS, WMNF, WSNY, WCOL, and Sunny 95; and a wide variety of podcasts and videocasts.
Gleb earned his Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, his M.A. at Harvard University, and his B.A. at New York University.
