Jeremy Hunter, PhD

Jeremy created The Practice of Self­ Management, a series of challenging and transformative executive education practices and programs dedicated to managing oneself. He teaches in the Executive Management and MBA programs at the Peter F. Drucker School of Management, where he has been affiliated since 1999.

Hunter’s courses are among the first to introduce mindfulness practice, a rigorous form of mental discipline, attention training and emotional management, in a management context. They incorporate state­ of ­the art findings in neuroscience, psychology, medicine and the arts. Hunter’s work is informed by his life experience of living with a supposedly terminal illness for 17 years. When told he needed life­ saving surgery, more than a dozen of his former students came forward as organ donors. He received a new kidney from one of them in December of 2008.

He is also a founding partner of CoreWorks Consulting, with Drucker alumnus Scott Scherer. Coreworks coaches and consults with professionals and organizations to develop their managerial capacities. They help their clients perform more effectively, have greater clarity and resolve in decision ­making, as well as manage reactive emotions and improve the quality of their professional relationships.

His clients have included Toyota Motor Sales, Northrup­ Grumman, the Los Angeles Police Department, John Laing Homes, Starbucks, The Museum of Contemporary Art, First AME Church of South Central Los Angeles, Red Mountain Retail Group, Kaiser Permanente, Southern California Housing Development Corporation, The University of Southern California and the California Well Being Institute. He has lectured at Brown University, the University of North Texas, the University of California at San Francisco, University of Southern California, and Wittenberg University. He is also an Executive Coach with Corporate Coaching International.

Hunter received his Ph.D. from University of Chicago, an M.P.P. from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, a B.A. in East Asian Studies from Wittenberg University. He consults internationally, speaks Japanese, and loves to eat. He lives in Los Angeles.
