Amy Gallo's Biography

Speaker Amy Gallo is an expert in workplace dynamics, conflict, and communication. She combines the latest management research with practical advice to deliver evidence-based ideas on how to improve relationships and excel at work.

She is the author of the HBR Guide to Dealing with Conflict, a how-to guidebook about handling conflict professionally and productively, and the forthcoming Getting Along: How to Work with Anyone (Even Difficult People), which will be out in September 2022.

In her role as a contributing editor at Harvard Business Review, Amy writes about interpersonal dynamics, communicating ideas, leading and influencing people, and building your career.

She has contributed to numerous books on feedback, emotional intelligence, and managing others, and is the co-author of the HBR Guide to Building Your Business Case.

Amy is a co-host of HBR’s Women at Work podcast, which is in its seventh season.

Before working with Harvard Business Review, she was a management consultant at Katzenbach Partners, a strategy and organization firm based in New York (later acquired by Booz & Company, which is now Strategy&). She contributed to the firm’s research on the “informal organization” — the unofficial networks and communities in organizations that govern how people work together in practice.

Amy is on the faculty of the Emotional Intelligence Coaching Certification program, recently launched by Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence.

She has taught at Brown University and UPenn, and is a graduate of both Brown and Yale University.
