Anthony Schulzetenberg, M.A. Hi! I’m an applied social psychologist who is passionate about helping workplaces be great for employees and businesses. I believe it is our interactions with others that drive our motivation, productivity, and satisfaction with our environment. My doctoral research in Educational Psychology at the University of Minnesota focuses on psychological interventions to improve engagement, equity and diversity, and situational threats to performance. I have worked with federal agencies and academic research teams to translate well-supported theories into real-world applications, in order to address clients’ specific needs. My 12 years of experience as an entrepreneur and coach fuel my drive to guide leaders and teams towards solutions that benefit employees as well employers. Utilizing validated assessments and targeted interventions, I work to break down barriers for marginalized or stigmatized groups while helping companies maximize their employees' potentials.
