Alise Cortez, Ph.D., is an Organizational Engagement and Development Catalyst based in Dallas. She designs and delivers professional development, leadership, and engagement workshops, and speaks on various related topics. Additionally, she is a Meaning in Work researcher and serves as an Adjunct Faculty member teaching Psychology at the University of Phoenix.
