Dr. Gleb Tsipursky

Dr. Gleb Tsipursky was lauded as “Office Whisperer” and “Hybrid Expert” by The New York Times for helping

leaders use hybrid work to improve retention and productivity while cutting costs. He serves as the CEO

of the future-of-work consultancy Disaster Avoidance Experts, which helps organizations adopt a hybrid-first

culture, instead of incrementally improving on the traditional office-centric culture.

Dr. Gleb wrote the first book on returning to the office and leading hybrid teams after the pandemic, his

best-seller Returning to the Office and Leading Hybrid and Remote Teams: A Manual on Benchmarking to Best

Practices for Competitive Advantage (Intentional Insights, 2021). It focuses on the return to office and hybrid

work arrangements after the disruption of the pandemic. Dr. Tsipursky authored seven books in total, and

is best known for his global bestseller, Never Go With Your Gut: How Pioneering Leaders Make the Best

Decisions and Avoid Business Disasters (Career Press, 2019). It’s the first book to focus on cognitive biases in

business leadership and reveal how leaders can overcome these dangerous judgment errors effectively.

His newest book is ChatGPT for Thought Leaders and Content Creators: Unlocking the Potential of Generative AI

for Innovative and Effective Content Creation (Intentional Insights Press, 2023). His writing was translated

intoChinese, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Korean, French, Vietnamese, German, and other languages.

Dr. Tsipursky’s cutting-edge thought leadership was featured in over 650 articles and 550 interviews in

prominent venues. These include Harvard Business Review, Fortune, Inc. Magazine, CBS News, Entrepreneur,

Scientific American, Psychology Today, The Conversation, Business Insider, Government Executive, The Chronicle of Philanthropy,

Time, Fast Company, Boston Globe, New York Daily News, Fox News, USA Today, Forbes, The New

York Times, and elsewhere.

Dr. Tsipursky’s expertise comes from over 20 years of consulting, coaching, speaking, and training on

future-proofing, strategic decision making and planning, and cognitive bias risk management. His

hundreds of clients include innovative startups, major nonprofits, and Fortune 500 companies from Aflac to

Xerox. His expertise also stems from his research background as a behavioral scientist studying decision

making and risk management strategy with over 15 years in academia. After getting a PhD at the

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he was appointed as a professor at the Ohio State University,

publishing dozens of peer-reviewed articles in academic journals such as Behavior and Social Issues and

Journal of Social and Political Psychology.

A proud Ukrainian American, Dr. Gleb lives in Columbus, Ohio (Go Bucks!). In his free time, he makes
