Fremont, CA – Gozde Yucel, PhD is helping biotech and technology industries succeed by teaching them about emotional literacy. An American scientist born in Turkey, she brings extensive academic experience, corporate biotech, and personal lessons to the table.

In her previous life as a research scientist, Dr. Yucel helped cure AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia).

Funding isn't the only challenge in biotech. "In scientific academia, every solution involves teamwork but only one person is allowed to receive recognition, or an 'author' status. This system causes a great deal of conflict, hesitation, and miscommunication."

Dr. Yucel offers three basic services. Conflict Coaching helps researchers and employees come up with successful communication tools, along with learning the importance of walking in the other person's shoes. Mediation helps two researchers in direct conflict. In that capacity, Dr. Yucel acts as a neutral party. Team Workshops are wonderful for when teams are struggling and don't want to call out one person. Games promoting trust and highlight the importance of sharing emotions offer an avenue for team members to speak to the conflict. Together, the team works to identify solutions.

She is also the author of an upcoming memoir, "Kismet," which shares Dr. Yucel's personal challenges growing up in Turkey, going through divorce, raising 3 biracial children, mental health challenges, and her career transition from scientist to Conflict Coaching.

"Kismet" is scheduled to be released on March 19, 2024, on Amazon and Barnes & Noble as a hardcover, paperback, e-book, and audiobook.
