Dr. Ginevra Drinka is an organizational psychologist, leadership development expert, and executive coach with over a decade of consulting experience. In her Executive Coaching practice, she focuses on client capacity to become more learning agile which helps them increase innovation, navigate change effectively, and build high performing teams who will embody their organization’s mission.
Her PhD research focused on leaders who embody a growth mindset, cultivate psychological safety, and exhibit learning agility to demonstrate that these behaviors set high potential leaders apart from their peers. She has relied on the lessons of her academic research to help leaders excel.
In her professional practice, she has worked as both an internal and external consultant. Her focus areas are leadership assessment, developing strong leaders, succession planning for the future, and change management. In her organization development practice, she has helped several clients manage and lead large-scale change implementations. The large-scale change initiative she is most proud of helped over 70,000 employees experience increased engagement and stress reduction at work. In her assessment practice, she has built robust talent strategies for executive development and succession planning. She leverages these experiences in her executive coaching practice to help leaders ensure they have the right talent at the right time in-role. These lessons enable planning for the future and team high performance.
