Organizational Resilience Advisor

Beth Kuttab is an Organizational Resilience Advisor who draws on more than 25 years’ senior level experience with international humanitarian and development organizations. She specializes in team and leadership development, management consulting, and working with staff employed in high stress environments.

Beth’s interest in staff care was heightened during the course of her years working with refugee communities in the Middle East. As a senior executive with the United Nations for 13 years, Beth was responsible for strategic planning, policies, design and implementation of reforms, and change management for regional social services staff in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, the West Bank and Gaza Strip. In this role she managed cross-cultural teams and interfaced with donors, refugees, government entities and local civil society organizations. Other professional experience also contributed to Beth’s appreciation for the importance of individual and organizational health and wellness. This included consultancies with USAID Missions as well as managing a foundation’s portfolio of development projects in Africa and Central Asia. As a grant administrator for an international non-profit, Beth’s travel to 20 countries made her particularly aware of the necessity of staff care across cultures.

Beth holds a M.S. degree in Management from Boston University and a M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology from Temple University. Executive Coaching studies were completed at the College of Executive Coaching. She is a PMI-trained Project Manager, an Authorized DiSC Facilitator and a Certified Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder-Centered Coach. Favorite pastimes include reading and travel.
