About Nataly

Nataly TEDx small photo

Nataly Kogan is one of the leading global experts in optimizing your emotional fitness and elevating your leadership. Direct, inspiring, and refreshingly vulnerable, Nataly busts through established myths around emotional health (don't dare say "soft skill" to her face!) and activates her audiences to embrace emotional fitness as a non-negotiable skill that you must regularly practice to struggle less and thrive more in work and life.

With a compelling life story of emigrating from Russia with her family, teaching herself to speak English by watching “Who’s the Boss” on repeat and holding top positions at McKinsey, Microsoft and 5 startups by the time she was 37, Nataly is a fascinating, one-of-a-kind keynote and TEDx speaker

After years of chasing a non-existent state of nirvana in the corporate world, Nataly was not only unfulfilled, she suffered a debilitating burnout that led her to find a new way. Today, as a best-selling author and the CEO of Happier, Nataly helps thousands of people cultivate their emotional fitness and elevated leadership skills through Happier @ Work training programs, virtual leadership programs, online courses, and books.
