David Lee

David Lee is the founder and principal of HumanNature@work. He’s an internationally recognized authority on organizational and managerial practices that optimize employee performance, morale, and resilience. He is the author of over 100 articles and book chapters—including chapters on onboarding in the last two editions of The Talent Management Handbook—and the recently published book Dealing with a Difficult Co-Worker: Volume One of the Courageous Conversations at Work Series.
