Lois P. Frankel Ph.D. Bio

Dr. Lois Frankel, President of Corporate Coaching International, a Pasadena, California consulting firm, literally wrote the book on coaching people to succeed in businesses large and small around the globe. Nice Girls Don't Get The Corner Office and Nice Girls Don't Get Rich are international bestsellers translated into over twenty-five languages and featured on the TODAY Show, CNN and CNBC, in the New York Times, USA Today, and in PEOPLE and TIME Magazines. Business Week named Corner Office one of the top ten business books of the year when it was released. Based on early sales and press, See Jane Lead, a new book about why women make natural leaders for our time and how to harness your own leadership talent, is headed for similar popularity.

Combining her experience in human resources at a Fortune 10 oil company with a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Southern California, Dr. Frankel is a pioneer in the field of business coaching. Her book Stop Sabotaging Your Career (formerly titled Overcoming Your Strengths), based on her coaching experiences, is a must-read for both men and women. For the past two decades her unique formula has helped thousands of people to create winning strategies to achieve superior career success and business goals. Her client list reads like a who's who of multinational corporations, including Amgen, British Petroleum, GE, KPMG, Ernst & Young, Procter & Gamble, MasterCard, Microsoft, Warner Bros., The Walt Disney Company and Goldman Sachs to name just a few of the hundreds of companies that have invited her back time and again.

Sought-after as a public speaker for her witty, warm and practical presentations that simultaneously engage, educate and entertain the audience, she is among the top names of international speakers featured on Better Life Media, a cable TV channel in 500,000 hotel rooms around the globe. She is also featured online as an AOL Business Coach and known in Southern California for her "Eye on Your Career" segment on KNX 1070.

Dr. Frankel is proud of her many accomplishments, but none more so than being the founder of MOSTE: Motivating Our Students Through Experience. MOSTE is a non-profit organization that for twenty years has provided mentors and scholarships to at-risk, inner-city middle school girls. She was honored with Maybelline's Women of Achievement award for her work empowering girls through education. Although she grew up in New York, she now calls Southern California home. In rare moments off from writing, speaking, and producing, she is an avid photographer, average golfer, and energetic tennis player.
