Dr. Kathy Cramer, Founder and Managing Partner, The Cramer Institute
Known among colleagues and clients for her boundless creative energy at The Cramer Institute, Kathy Cramer is passionate about possibilities and potential. She believes in big thinking, the power of presence, concocting new ideas, and never cooking the same meal twice. She created and has dedicated her life to Asset-Based Thinking™ (ABT) – a way of looking at the world that helps leaders, influencers, and their teams refocus and make small shifts in thinking that produce extraordinary impact. That impact has been experienced firsthand by clients such as DuPont, Prudential Real Estate, Starbucks, Microsoft, and others.
Dr. Cramer has written seven bestselling books including Change the Way You See Everything, which started the ABT Global Movement. She also won an Emmy, and was twice featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the highest rated talk show in American television history. She delights in laughter the great elixir, is inspired by heroic stories of people overcoming adversity and “turning it on its ear,” and is on a noble quest to add the term “Asset-Based Thinking” to next year’s edition of Merriam Webster’s dictionary. Kathy is a psychologist and a dedicated, founding member of the ABT Global “Minds on Fire” Movement.
Dr. Cramer received her PhD in Psychology from St. Louis University. She earned her Master’s Degree in Psychology from DePauw University. She is a licensed member of the American Psychological Association.
