Nancy Post, Ph.D., M.Ac
Nancy began developing expertise in organizational energy during the 1980’s and is a respected pioneer in the field. Originally working as Director of Research at the Merriam Hill Center in Cambridge, MA, she assembled a multi-disciplinary team that developed the first “organizational energetics” training programs for professionals in North America. At the suggestion of the founders of the National Training Labs and other national experts, she launched Post Enterprises in 1986, developed a service mark for Systems Energetics and began successfully marketing consulting and training to mainstream companies (see Clients).
Her ability to convey the application of natural laws of energy to social systems in a simple and understandable manner, brought her a national reputation and many invitations to speak to a broad range of audiences in the US and in Europe. She has published numerous articles demonstrating the effects of workplace stresses on health. For a downloadable selection of articles see Articles.
Nancy has held a variety of teaching positions at The University of Pennsylvania in the Organizational Dynamics program and at Wharton’s Aresty Institute for Executive Development as well as at Temple University’s Executive MBA program. She also spent three years at Wharton in the early 1990’s as a coach to senior executives in the Advanced Management Program.
Nancy graduated cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in 1979, with degrees in economics and psychology. In 1994, she earned her Ph.D. with Distinction in Organizational Behavior from the Union Institute in Cincinnati. She received a Masters Degree in Acupuncture from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, Md., and trained at the Houston School for Psychotherapy and Training where she completed certification in individual and group dynamics.
An avid, former Penn varsity, tennis player and gardener, she lives in Philadelphia with her husband and pre-teen son.
