Whitney Johnson

  • Whitney Johnson is an expert on disruptive innovation and personal disruption, which she covers in her critically acclaimed book Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work.

    She developed her proprietary framework for disruptive innovation and personal disruption after co-founding the Disruptive Innovation Fund with Harvard Business School’s Clayton Christensen. This framework is complemented by Whitney's deep understanding of how executives create and destroy value, which she gathered after spending nearly a decade as an Institutional Investor-ranked Equity Analyst on Wall Street.

    She is also the author of Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things  Happen When You Dare to Dream and the upcoming book, Build an “A” Team: Play To Their Strengths and Lead Them Up the Learning Curve (Harvard Business Press, 2018). 

    In addition to her work as a speaker and adviser, Whitney is one of Marshall Goldsmith’s original cohort of 25 for the #100 Coaches Project, a coach for Harvard Business School’s Executive Education program, frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, and host of a twice-monthly Disrupt Yourself Podcast. 

    Whitney also serves as a member of SMB Experts, an Oracle-sponsored panel comprised of today’s SMB thought leaders.
