"Gleb Tsipursky came to my attention sometime during the pandemic when I was planning to have our research institute follow the standard path that all the big corporations were following. Apple and Google were announcing plans to have people come back three days a week, I thought that seemed like a good plan. ... I saw a video that Gleb gave at IEEE [the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers] that really actually changed my mind about this. It was a video about hybrid work and how important it was to actually embrace it. One of the things I was impressed by was all these interesting ideas about how to make hybrid work more effective. So I signed up for a meeting with Gleb and I learned quite a bit more about how to do hybrid work well. Gleb has come on as a consultant for the Information Sciences Institute and has been really helpful in terms of putting us much more in a leadership position in terms of figuring out how to do hybrid work. We changed our policies, we are much more flexible about who can work at home and allowing people to work from home whenever it makes sense with respect to their supervisor. We are adapting people's home offices and our office spaces and figuring out how to onboard people in a way that is more effective when people haven't met in person. I think he's been incredibly helpful in terms of really transitioning us to lead in how we manage hybrid work at the institute."


Dr. Craig Knoblock, Keston Executive Director of the Information Sciences Institute at University of Southern California

“EWI is an engineering services consulting firm. We contacted Gleb to acquire some insights in how to motivate scientific people to ‘sell’ themselves – a constant challenge of the business. Gleb used his researched-based approach to behavioral psychology to engage us in a conversation that provided several very helpful insights into how we communicate with our people. We were using far too much business-speak that was not connecting emotionally with our people. For example we have stopped using the word ‘brand’ and now use the word reputation – which resonates with scientists. So I have to say that one of the things Gleb said to me – I am not an engineer and have never been an engineer – but I work in human resources. And he started talking to me about emotions. My first response was: “engineers have emotions?” And he went on to teach me that engineers – scientists – although they like to think of themselves as rational animals, still are primarily driven like the rest of us by emotional thinking and emotional responses to language. Gleb has been an unexpected and practical resource for us.”


Mark Matson, Vice President of Human Resources at EWI
