Dr. Hunter serves as associate professor of practice and is the founding director of the Executive Mind Leadership Institute at the Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University. He also serves as visiting professor at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, where he developed and co-teaches the Leading Mindfully executive education program.
Dr. Hunter received a BA in East Asian studies from Wittenberg University in 1994, graduating Phi Beta Kappa, and received an MPP from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in 1996. In 2001, he received a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago (Department of Psychology, Committee on Human Development) under the direction of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience.
Dr. Hunter has more than a decade’s experience helping leaders to relentlessly develop themselves while retaining their humanity in the face of monumental change and challenge. His work redefines and enhances productivity by cultivating quality of mind. He created and teaches The Executive Mind, a series of demanding and transformative executive education courses dedicated to Drucker’s assertion “You cannot manage other people unless you manage yourself first.” He also teaches mindfulness for corporate clients in the Executive Education program at the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University.
Dr. Hunter’s work is deeply informed by more than twenty years of experience with Asian contemplative practices and by the experience of living day-to-day for seventeen years with a potentially terminal illness, and when faced with the need for life-saving surgery having more than a dozen former students come forward as organ donors.
Other activities include:
Dr. Hunter is a longtime student of Shinzen Young and a contributor to Mindful.org. He consults internationally, obsesses about modern architecture, and loves to eat. He and his wife dutifully serve two house cats who live in Los Angeles.
