About Me

My name is Bradley Brummel. I conduct research, teach, and consult on professional development and work engagement. I am an Associate Professor of Psychology at The University of Tulsa. I have a PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Illinois. 


​I started this company because I want to use the knowledge and resources that I have acquired to help people thrive in their careers by taking control of their professional development. I also want to help companies who want to facilitate this development for their employees and to create a better work environment. 


There are limited options for individuals and companies in Tulsa for this kind of help because of our location and the cost of larger consulting companies. I believe that these opportunities should be available to developing professionals, small companies, entreprenuers, and non profits.  

If you are interested in learning more about industrial/organizational psychology, the best place to start is the Society for Industrial Organizational Psychology
