Dr. Kathy CramerKathryn D. Cramer, Ph.D.

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.

Director of Operations
The Cramer Institute

Colleen Moore, nicknamed “command and control central” by her colleagues, is the Director of Operations at The Cramer Institute. With 14 years experience working with TCI clients and an MBA in Human Resource Management, Colleen believes that life should be fun, that people need to surround themselves with other people that make them happy, and that it is healthy to cry during a Hallmark commercial. Colleen works hand-in-hand with all of the TCI partners to ensure all client needs are met – and exceeded—from day to day. Known as a client’s best friend, Colleen is particularly inspired by watching others who are adventurous and visionary, who are not afraid to take chances, and who go where life takes them.  When she is not supporting client work at The Cramer Institute, Colleen may be found running her kids to school and practices, scrapbooking with friends, reading the latest fiction best-seller, or planning her next beach vacation getaway.
