Ep #90: How to Stop Overthinking and Trust Yourself with Melody Wilding

One of the core teachings inside Executive Ahead of Time revolves around trust.

In order to advance into executive level positions, it is essential that the leadership team trusts you are ready to lead at the senior executive level.

And you must also trust in yourself that, yes, you CAN really thrive in an executive leadership role.

That’s why I was sooo happy to discover Melody Wilding’s brilliant book: Trust Yourself: Stop Overthinking and Channel Your Emotions for Success at Work.

On this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, Melody and I will reveal tips that will help you trust yourself so you can put yourself out there in a bold, bigger way AND have the leadership team recognize you for it

✔️ She is an executive coach and human behavior expert.

✔️ She has coached hundreds of private clients from CEOs and Fortune 500 executives to leaders from the U.S. Department of Education, the Federal Reserve, and the United Nations.

✔️ AND she is leading the way to help high-achieving sensitive leaders (AKA Sensitive Strivers) break free from imposter syndrome and overthinking so they can find the confidence to lead effectively.

You are going to be so inspired by this conversation. Tune in now.
