This podcast is designed to help you get out of your rut or talk you back off the ledge. Surviving corporate America is not easy, but it is doable with the right tools and insights. Using my expertise in human resources analysis and consulting, I have curated content to address challenges that arise in the career development space. We will discuss topics like knowing who is really in your corner, having the courage to speak out when something just isn’t right, investing in your own development with or without corporate sponsorship, choosing your words carefully and many other topics. I will also interview some interesting regular people who have made it through successfully. Life is way too amazing to be stuck in confusion and misery! Subscribe to the podcast, give us a rating, send me some comments (I really do use them for the development and improvement of content). Thank you for listening!
