Jack Ricchiuto


I am co-founder and partner with the Cleveland-based firm Thrive At Work.

With an undergraduate degree from John Carroll University and graduate degree from Goddard College, both in psychology, my career began in the late 1970s as a community health therapist trained in American, European, and Japanese methodologies.

In the early 1980s, I pivoted to training and coaching with organizations across 24 industries as well as teaching undergraduate, graduate, and post-doc courses in psychology, management, and entrepreneurship.

My teaching portfolio includes storytelling at Harvard Kennedy School, research branding at UC  Berkeley, executive leadership at Kent State University, and currently entrepreneurship and innovation at the Boler School of Business at John Carroll University.

I am the author of 25 books and sustain a blog launched in August 2002. I live in the historic neighborhood of Tremont in Cleveland, Ohio.
