Dr. Reuben Rusk

I've done the research for you.

I communicate the science of what matters to leaders, teams, and organisations to help them develop and reach their goals.

I can help you reach your goals in areas like...



Motivating team members to boost wellbeing, rather than burnout.



Cultivating mental fitness and flexibility so people feel good and work well.



Developing the personal and relational skills that make leaders great.



Building a positive culture that enhances performance and wellbeing.



Creating the safety for leaders and team members to be themselves and thrive.



Enabling effective communication,  decision-making, and cooperation.



Creating an environment that allows team members to work at their best.



Empowering others to create positive changes in behaviour that last.

About Me

I’m Reuben Rusk.
I help people with the science of how people work best.

The collective knowledge of the scientific community is far beyond what any individual can learn through experience. I’ve researched topics like wellbeing and leadership for over ten years. I help people understand the most important findings and apply them to their own unique situations.
