Bio

Cornelia is an “accidental author” who started writing when she collaborated with a colleague for a guide to share with clients. A book emerged, but it never took off beyond their respective client base. Then in 2011 another colleague approached with an offer to co-author The Big Book of HR. A writing partnership was born. They have since written three additional books, The Essential Workplace Conflict Handbook, The Conflict Resolution Phrase Book, and The Manager’s Answer Book. They collaborate on a weekly blog Making People Matter. Currently they are working on a creative non-fiction book and a whole new storytelling voice is emerging. Having always been told she’s a natural storyteller, she’s turning to that voice within and learning different ways of writing.

Cornelia has written articles for major publications including Fast Company, Forbes, and Inc. She’s been quoted in major publications including the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, Fortune, The New York Times, Forbes, CEO Magazine, The Globe & Mail, Newsday and HR Magazine.

Most of her career was spent in a senior HR leadership role with a Fortune 500 IT services company before starting her own management consulting firm. She served on national task forces that influenced public policy, testified before the EEOC and served in volunteer leadership positions, including on the national board with the Society of Human Resource Management. She has also served as a technical editor for McGraw Hill Education.

The biggest challenge to writing is constantly and continually promoting your books and learning all you can about emerging platforms, social media, and public relations.
