Nick Petschek is an advisory lead in LRN’s Governance, Culture, and Leadership practice group. Nick brings experience from a diverse array of organizations. His presentation skills were forged in the circus ring, his critical thinking from The Fletcher School in International Affairs, his professional nimbleness from one of the fastest growing unicorn start-ups, and a reverence for systems and process from his time with the United Nations. Having worked in such different contexts, he gradually settled on thinking and working on a common thread—how and why they actually—or don’t actually—work (sometimes known as organizational effectiveness).
