TITLE: Get “un-stuck” and out of “rock middle” with lawyer turned author and career coach Sallie Holder (Episode 183)
THIS WEEK’S TOPIC: Ever feel stuck? Maybe the job or career you worked so hard for has failed to live up to your expectations? Often a healthy dose of guilt can accompany that stuck feeling. Maybe you know you’re not in the right job, but you have no idea how to articulate or find the right one.
We get “stuck” for lots of reasons — any of them can be uncomfortable. But in order to reach our fullest potential, this week’s guest says it’s important to face those fears head on.
THIS WEEK’S GUEST: Sallie Holder is a former labor and employment lawyer turned business coach and author who found herself stuck squarely in what she calls “rock middle,” a term that became the title of her terrific book “Hitting Rock Middle” and her podcast.
Sallie is helping others, including YOU and me, find our way out of “stuck” and into a place where we can bring our full potential and have the IMPACT and INFLUENCE we are meant to have! I love Sallie’s story and advice and I think you will too!
