Jeremy P. Hunter, PhD, is the Founding Director of the Executive Mind Leadership Institute and an Associate Professor of Practice at the Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management in Claremont, CA.

Hunter pioneered teaching mindfulness to executives. For over a decade, he has helped leaders develop themselves while retaining their humanity in the face of monumental change and challenge.

He created and teaches The Executive Mind, a series of demanding and transformative executive education programs. They are dedicated to Drucker’s assertion that “You cannot manage other people unless you manage yourself first.”

His work is informed by the experience of living day-to-day for 17 years with a potentially terminal illness. When faced with the need for life-saving surgery more than a dozen former students came forward as organ donors.

Dr. Hunter received his Ph.D. from University of Chicago, under the direction of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. He also holds a degree in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and in East Asian Studies from Wittenberg University.
