MELANIE GALLO, PhD
I’m Dr. Melanie Gallo – a worklife psychology coach with a PhD in business psychology. Some might also recognize me as a Forbes contributor specializing in interpersonal and group relationships, and personality within the world of work.
Psychological science provides the foundation for Melanie C Gallo WorkLife Coaching and understanding human behavior within the Work+Life overlap. Using methodologies from social & personality psychology, positive psychology, cognitive psychology, and business psychology, you will be armed with the tools to achieve true personal & professional fulfillment.
After 25 years of work in the private sector, research and of course personal experience, I realized that work-life was not as much about balance as it is about navigating through the mental fog that can disrupt our emotional and physical health – and ultimately our productivity. Trying to actually balance work and life is like wobbling around trying to balance like a juggler on a unicycle. If that's balance, then I'll pass on that circus act!
My passion is in helping professionals navigate through the fog in that space where Work & Life overlap to boost mental and physical energy. The end result should be Work+Life = Joyful.
