Julie Engel, Ph.D. has over twenty-five years of experience as an executive coach, organization development consultant, facilitator and trainer. Julie coaches executives and managers toward increased and enduring effectiveness, helping them be more resourceful and grounded as they meet and navigate the ever-changing, fast-moving, often challenging and uncertain circumstances of their work and personal lives through cultivating a strong foundation of resilience, courage and presence. A special focus of Julie’s practice is her work with leaders and teams in both the nonprofit and corporate sectors who are working in service of a more sustainable, just and peaceful world. She supports these individuals and teams in cultivating their individual and collective ability to sustain themselves and their effectiveness in their work. In addition to her own coaching practice, Julie is on the faculty of New Ventures West and an adjunct faculty member at the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, where she designs and leads classes for corporate managers and executives on catalyzing and leading organizational change.
Prior to launching her own coaching practice, Julie was a Senior Research Associate, consultant and faculty member at the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship. She supported executives and managers in effectively catalyzing change toward more responsible and sustainable business practice through one-on-one coaching and consultation, facilitating a peer-to-peer learning network of corporate responsibility executives from fourteen Fortune 500 companies and conducting applied research. She has authored or co-authored several reports and articles based on her research, including Integration: Critical Link for Corporate Citizenship and Integrating Corporate Citizenship: Leading from the Middle. Julie also taught Sociology at Boston College and Assumption College.
Julie has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Tufts University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Sociology from Boston College, where she focused her studies on political and cultural sociology. Her dissertation was published as a book, Talking Trash: The Cultural Politics of Daytime TV Talk Shows. She loves to dance, (most recently a beginning tango student!), read, and run; enjoys good movies, good music, and good conversation; and is a dedicated yoga practitioner.
