Mantel Featherson

I’m a Human Resources Development (HRD) Scholar/Practitioner focused on enhancing worker effectiveness in both employment and entrepreneurship.

My research is devoted to developing a concept for enhancing individual effectiveness at work. I call this concept Worker Performance Theory (WPT) – it’s a methodology where workers (i.e., employees and entrepreneurs) develop, align, and elevate their Mindset, Behavior, and Strategy to produce high-value outcomes for themselves and others.

Much of my latest research can be found at – an online resource designed to enhance the performance of workers seeking to excel in employment and/or entrepreneurial endeavors. 

My educational accomplishments include a Bachelors degree from Temple University, and a Masters degree from Penn State University. I’m currently completing a Doctorate with Drexel University.
