A Ph.D. psychologist, Dr. Shatté received his training at the University of Pennsylvania. He and his colleagues were the first to develop the principles of resilience and apply them to the corporate sector. They identified and defined 7 factors of (human psychological) resilience, a test to measure these traits within individuals called the Resilience Factor Inventory (RFI) and the 7 skills to enhance them. Most notably Dr. Shatté has determined that resilience is the single greatest predictor of who will succeed and who will not, who will be happy and who will not in both their professional and personal lives. As an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Shatté conducted extensive research into the effects of thinking style on resilience, motivation and performance. He has devoted his 25-year career to understanding the psychological aspects of motivation and resilience and to developing programs to optimize human performance in various areas such as the workplace, health, academics, and sports.
