Your Worthy Career

Melissa Lawrence

Welcome to Your Worthy Career, a podcast with Melissa Lawrence, a Career & Leadership Coach with all the corporate cred in talent development and organizational psychology. I help women like you in Pharma and Biotech have a career experience worthy of you and build your self-worth to shift what you think is possible and take the action that will create the career you’ve always wanted.

Whether it’s more meaningful work you are passionate about, making more money, getting to your next level or being more effective as a leader. We are shattering the glass ceiling here. The one that exists for women at work and the one we put on ourselves with our doubt and inner critic.

Each week you will get practical teachings grounded in neuroscience and effective career development strategies, you’ll experience deep mindset shifts and the perfect amount of woo so you can run your career with ease rather than your career running you.

You were born for more and I’m going to help you get there…with maybe a few dance parties along the way. Tune in now.
