Jesse Sostrin

I help people navigate the hidden challenges of working, managing, and leading well.

My books, articles, and signature consulting services deliver research-based insights that help organizations and their leaders navigate their unique path to success.

Here is a more formal biography that summarizes my work:

Dr. Jesse Sostrin is a nationally recognized leadership expert who writes, speaks, and consults about the elusive challenges of getting great work done. His latest book, The Manager’s Dilemma has been called “…a must-read for managers who are ready to shift their experience at work from ‘overwhelmed’ to ‘exhilarated’” by Jessica Rohman at the Great Place to Work® Institute. He is also the author of Beyond the Job Description and Re-Making Communication at Work, both of which helped to establish his place in the next generation of influential thinkers challenging everything we thought we knew about success at work. Focusing on the often overlooked intersection between individual and organizational success, Jesse is a perceptive observer of the world of work. He has been featured on a number of television and radio programs, including MSNBC, Fox Business, and NPR. His ideas have been published in a variety of online and print publications, including FastCompany, Inc., The Huffington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, The Sun (UK), Globe and Mail (Canada), and The Philadelphia Inquirer. As a columnist he is a regular contributor to,, AOL Jobs, and Brazen Careerist. As a thought leader, Jesse has pioneered breakthrough concepts such as the Hidden Curriculum of Work®, the Job-within-the-Job, and the Mutual Agenda. He is known for translating complex ideas about the workplace into simple language and useful tools that drive learning and performance for individuals and teams.
