Stewart (Stew) Friedman is a practice professor of management at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and a leading expert on leadership development and work/life integration.
Friedman is the author or co-author of numerous publications on work/life integration, leadership, and the dynamics of change. His books include: Integrating Work and Life: The Wharton Resource Guide (Jossey-Bass, 1998), Work and Family – Allies or Enemies? (co-authored with Jeff Greenhaus), (2000); and the best-selling, award-winning Total Leadership: Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life (2008).
