Tsedal Neeley Speaker Biography


Tsedal Neeley is the Naylor Fitzhugh Professor of Business Administration, Senior Associate Dean of Faculty Development and Research Strategy, and Faculty Chair of the Christensen Center for Teaching and Learning at the Harvard Business School. Recognized as a Top Voice on LinkedIn in remote work and one of the 100 people transforming business who are innovating, sparking trends, and tackling global challenges by Business Insider, her work focuses on how leaders can scale their organizations by developing and implementing global and digital strategies. She regularly advises top leaders who are embarking on virtual work and large scale-change that involves global expansion, digital transformation, and becoming more agile.

She is the co-author of the book, The Digital Mindset: What It Really Takes to Thrive in the Age of Data, Algorithms and AI, which introduces the “30% rule”–the minimum threshold that gives us just enough digital literacy to understand and take advantage of the digital threads woven into the fabric of our world. Her book, Remote Work Revolution: Succeeding from Anywhere, provides remote workers and leaders with the best practices necessary to perform at the highest levels in their organizations. Her book, The Language of Global Success: How a Common Tongue Transforms Multinational Organizations chronicles the behind-the-scenes globalization process of a company over the course of five years. She has also published extensively in leading scholarly and practitioner-oriented outlets such as Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, Management Science, Journal of International Business, Strategic Management Journal and Harvard Business Review, and her work has been widely covered in media outlets such as CNBC, Bloomberg, BBC, CNN, Financial Times, NPR, the Wall Street Journal, and the Economist. Her HBS case, Managing a Global Team: Greg James at Sun Microsystems, is one of the most used cases worldwide on the subject of virtual work.

Tsedal has popular online courses including Remote Work Revolution for Everyone and Leading in a Remote Environment (with Ronald Heifetz). She co-chairs the executive offering, Leading Global Businesses, which helps top leaders develop emerging and mature market strategies in a global and increasingly digital economy. She also teaches extensively in executive programs such as the Harvard Business Analytics Program. She has previously been the course head for the first-year required Leadership and Organizational Behavior course in the MBA program that focuses on how to lead effectively; the curriculum addresses group behavior and performance, organization design, change and how to align people behind a common vision.

Prior to her academic career, Tsedal spent ten years working for companies like Lucent Technologies and The Forum Corporation in various roles, including strategies for global customer experience, 360-degree performance software management systems, sales force/sales management development, and business flow analysis for telecommunication infrastructures. A sought-after speaker with extensive international experience, she is fluent in four languages. She holds a patent for her software simulation on global collaboration and is a member of Rakuten People & Culture Lab Advisory Board.

Tsedal is a recipient of the prestigious Charles M. Williams Award for Outstanding Teaching in Executive Education and the Greenhill Award for outstanding contributions to Harvard Business School (two-time recipient). She serves on the Board of Directors of Brightcove, Brown Capital Management, Harvard Business Publishing and the Partnership Inc.

Tsedal received her Ph.D. from Stanford University in Management Science and Engineering, specializing in Work, Technology and Organizations. Tsedal was named as one of the Top Management Thinkers in the World by Thinkers50, honored as a Stanford Distinguished Alumnus Scholar and was a Stanford University School of Engineering Lieberman award recipient for excellence in teaching and research.

IT’S ABOUT LEADING A GLOBAL AND DIGITAL INCLUSIVE ORGANIZATION
Inclusive is global. Divides in business are real: digital, linguistic, and cultural. When your business needs to work, thrive, and lead people who are different from each other, how do you make the most of your team’s differences? In this talk, Neeley will show the policies and practices that determine success (or not) when negotiating business divides. Professor Neeley also utilizes case studies from Harvard Business School in her presentations.

REMOTE WORK REVOLUTION
The rapid and unprecedented changes brought on by Covid-19 have accelerated the transition to remote working, requiring wholesale migration of nearly entire companies to virtual work, leaving managers and employees scrambling to adjust. In this talk, Neeley will show organizations how to lead virtually, keep teams motivated, find the right digital tools, and maintain employees’ productivity.

THE LANGUAGE OF GLOBAL SUCCESS
For nearly three decades, English has been the lingua franca of cross-border organizations. However, global businesses face daily challenges with linguistic and cultural misunderstandings. So what are the best corporate strategies for leading teams in linguistically and culturally diverse companies so they can thrive? In this talk, Neeley shares how organizations can integrate language and communication effectively to set up their teams for success.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
Technology is constantly changing how we work. Digital transformation applies to everything a company does from how they strategically address and implement internal processes to interactions with customers to all lines of business and communication. In this talk, Neeley shares how organizations can lead through digital change while upscaling their workforce to prepare for future challenges. This interactive presentation also utilizes case studies from Harvard Business School.

DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, AND YOUR BUSINESS
The most diverse companies are the most innovative. Despite the benefits of diversity, many employees find themselves left behind when it comes to leadership roles and inclusion. In this moderated session, Neeley talks about what companies can do to implement cultural change so they can succeed and everyone can thrive.
