Fields of expertise:

Elke Geraerts is a Professor at the University of Ghent. With a Ph.D. in psychology, Elke held various positions at the universities of Harvard, St Andrews, Maastricht, and Rotterdam, where she attracted international attention with her solid research work. But she was drawn to the business world. Triggered by her scientific insights about mental resilience, she started the company Better Minds at Work. This international consultancy company focuses on increasing mental resilience, energy, and productivity of employees and now consists of about thirty psychologists, doctors, and consultants.

Elke Geraerts’ trademark is without a doubt the way in which she manages to translate new psychological insights into fresh and accessible day-to-day applications. This is how she inspires people and organizations to hone their mental resilience and thrive in these volatile times. Her big breakthrough came with her bestseller Mentaal Kapitaal (Mental Capital; 2015). This book, which is now in its thirteenth edition, was recently launched on the international market in English under the title Better Minds and in Chinese. Elke Geraerts recently launched a new book, The Mental Reset in which she inspires to move towards a new era with healthier and more successful ways of living and working.

What is so remarkable is that Elke’s stories seem to touch each individual, from Los Angeles to Sydney, from the North Cape to Cape Town, Buenos Aires to Singapore.
