About the Author


Liane Davey, PhD combines her expertise in strategy with her deep insight into group dynamics to create powerful changes in top teams. As a Vice President of Knightsbridge Leadership Solutions and the Lead for Team effectiveness, she is sought out by executives at some of North America's leading financial services, consumer goods, high tech, and health care organizations.

She works to rehabilitate teams that have become toxic and with healthy teams that want to take their performance to the next level. To meet the needs of a broader audience, Liane has distilled her approach into Knightsbridge's highly successful Vital Teams™ and Team Inoculation™ programs. She has also built a program to allow organizations to certify their internal resources to deliver these programs.

She holds a PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Waterloo. Liane is happily married with two young daughters.
