You know how sometimes you feel stuck in your career? I have observed that while common logic is to change jobs to reignite your career, a more powerful change is the one you make within yourself. (P.S. that way you don’t take your baggage right into the new job and get stuck there!) So, I looked within my own success for the stories and lessons that helped propel me forward, and the mistakes that tried to derail me. I bottle those up in a model to share with anyone who has that sinking Sunday-night feeling, and to lift you out of career quicksand.

Managing humans is messy. But if done with heart, it can be the most rewarding part of your career.
Don’t name drop to get things done. Build relationships so your colleagues will want to get things done for you.
Don’t wait on an invitation to innovate. Advancement requires proactive risk taking.
Don’t be a one-dimensional leader in a multi-dimensional world.
You will face disappointment. How you handle it will determine your career.
What my customers are saying
“We consistently invite Reagan back to speak to our C-Level women mainly because she can relate as a global executive and because we get tangible results from her techniques.”
“Reagan was brought in to speak on practical ways to transform organizational talent management practices. This particular session was virtual, but I felt like she was right in front of me.”
“The most valuable thing about Reagan is she goes beyond the typical career planning and advice. She teaches you how to think differently and approach problems, challenges, and day-to-day situations in an objectively different way.”
“As my coach, Reagan helped me build confidence in my decision making, gave me the tools to effectively scale myself, and prepared me to take on a leadership role at the next level.”
