Former Global TA Leader at Whirlpool and Accenture Discusses Work/Life Challenges

Meet Tim Streeter. Tim is the classic example of author Daniel Pink’s A Whole New Mind, living out the power of using both left brain and right brain simultaneously in past global talent acquisition leadership roles at Whirlpool and Accenture.

Tim is also the author of a new book, The Contentment Commitment, in which he writes about managing the demands of having a successful professional and personal life. With degrees in economics and math, you might expect Tim to be all quantitative analysis and data, but he’s also a great communicator, a strong people leader, a competitive soccer player, an author, and a musician. (He’s made nine albums over the past 10 years!)
