Your voice, personality, talents, knowledge, experiences, and skills all combine to make you the person you are – and an asset many organizations should be proud to embrace as part of their team. However, being a great performer and strong subject matter expert doesn’t guarantee promotions, raises, or recognition.
I understand the crushing disappointment of watching others land that coveted position or receive acknowledgement for their work while you feel as though you’ve faded into the background.
Once upon a time, I wrestled with self-doubt, wondering how to get from Point A to Point B. The journey was not without the challenges many women face as they rise to greater authority and responsibility levels. As a woman of short stature who struggled with my weight, I rationalized that my appearance was something for others to get past. In contrast, that challenge enhanced my resilience, softened my heart, and forced me to embrace change. In learning how to shift gears and show up, I also learned what I don’t need to tolerate within the workplace.
When I’m not helping clients identify and overcome the self-perceived challenges holding them back from achieving all they want to be, you can find me connecting with nature in my garden while I pursue Master Gardener certification, vibing to live music, or wrapped up in the excitement of the theatrical arts.
