Synergizing Business and Anthropology
As a Sociocultural Anthropologist, Jenean Merkel Perelstein has studied behavior change across many different cultures. From the markets and prisons of India to the boardrooms of the United States, Jenean has learned and implemented change strategies that have saved lives and made fortunes.
Jenean is a Business Strategist, U.S. Patent holder, and revered speaker. She worked as a medical anthropologist before becoming CEO of Alchemie Academy. Here, she has enriched workplace culture for clients ranging from solopreneurs to Fortune 100 companies.
“People from the industry call me behavior change specialist, but anthropology tells me that that is actually not…how people change and we know we can talk about that. People change because of their beliefs, not their behaviors.”– Jenean Perelstein
Beliefs and Behaviors
Jenean was a medical anthropologist and was working in areas like program evaluation. Throughout her career, she started recognizing that the highlight of her work was behavior change.
“People from the industry call me behavior change specialist, but anthropology tells me that that is actually not where people, how people change and we know we can talk about that, people change because of their beliefs, not their behaviors.” – Jenean Perelstein
As Jenean found her calling, she also found her niche, working with different companies. She helped various companies with their business strategies but she places high importance on developing a good corporate culture.
“They could have a tremendous strategy, it could be spot on, actually, but if their culture was wonky in any way, that strategy wasn’t gonna get implemented.” – Jenean Perelstein
Weaving Culture and Strategy
Jenean shares that when she started weaving culture and strategy together, that was when she saw her clients really take off. It’s why she loves to consult with organizations in creating productive teams and profitable businesses.
