Jeanette Luise Eberhardy is a writer, teacher, and storyteller. She is passionate about developing storytelling skills in leaders to build genuine connections with their audiences. Why stories? They help us narrow the gap between inspiration and action.

For the past three years, Eberhardy has been studying the practices of global thinkers for her next book Creating Meaningful Work which profiles activists, artists, and entrepreneurs—working in Brazil, Zimbabwe, India, Norway, and the US—who have successfully integrated work, education, and life purpose. Eberhardy is also writing Life on the Page: Interdisciplinary Teaching in Writing and Art with visual artist William Flynn.

Trained in Social Ecology, Eberhardy learned the value of interdisciplinary work to access new insights for work. Eberhardy holds a PhD in Educational Psychology and a MFA in Creative Nonfiction Writing. She has worked in settings as diverse as an emerging software company to a top ranking US Art College. Eberhardy has taught storytelling skills to emerging leaders, including youth, women in business, global activists and entrepreneurs—in Egypt, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic, and the U.S.
