Most of us yearn for work that allows us and our communities to flourish. We don't just want a paycheck; we want a career that reflects who we are, what we're good at, and what we value. And yet finding that kind of personalized, meaningful work can sometimes feel impossible. In this course, we’ll learn that it doesn’t need to.
Workshops That Will Stretch, Enliven, and Inspire You:
How many of us suffer in our worklives because we’re trying to meet expectations that don’t make sense for us?
Whether it’s because we’re caring for loved ones at home or because we find the traditional workplace confining, there are many of us who don’t fit into - or don’t want to fit into - the traditional workforce mold.
Many of us were taught to view our worklives and our organizations with a mechanical perspective. We talk about levers, efficiency and automation, all while pursuing a linear, upward trajectory of progress. But what if there’s more to the story? What if change happens in a spiral way? What if the key to thriving in today’s workforce is actually about a return to a more natural way of being?
I'm so excited to be part of the 3rd Annual PUGSfest this year! This all-day series of workshops and community is a lot of fun, and you will leave learning so much.
I'll be leading a workshop titled Energized at Work: Reigniting Your Career, and there will be almost a dozen other workshops you can choose from throughout the day.
Support staff in organizations often underestimate the power they have to influence others and create positive change. We all have the ability to do important, meaningful work that feels fulfilling to us, and in this workshop we’ll spend time aligning our unique strengths and values with the work we do each day.
There’s no shortage of information on how to create a professional LinkedIn profile or how to write an effective resume. In my work with dozens of coaching clients over the past few years, I see that the core problem isn’t that their resume is broken, it’s that there’s a disconnect between their action-oriented brain and their intuitive wisdom.
All kinds of fears come up when we’re considering a change in our career: fear that we’ll end up right back where we started (or worse!), fear of what our peers and loved ones will think of us, and even fear of actually getting what we want and having to say ‘goodbye’ to our old lives.
As a busy professional, you’re expected to manage a heavy workload, countless emails, the needs of your co-workers, and much more. Despite your best efforts, it can start to feel like all the time-saving tricks in the world can’t help you. Building your energy reserves is actually much more effective than trying to manage each minute of your workday, but unfortunately, that's what most of us do when we're feeling overwhelmed.
For many women, our relationship to work is a complicated one.
Many of us experience tension - a sort of constant push and pull as we figure out who we want to be in the professional world.
In A Wild New Work, we'll dive into what you most want and need out of your worklife and support you as you make those desires real.
Do you feel out of alignment in your professional career and need help getting on the right track?
Join our 3-week, peer-led group designed to empower you with support and resources to realign your professional identity. With the group, you will have the opportunity to discuss and brainstorm ways to get “unstuck” and move forward in your professional career.
In this free 45-minute webinar for professionals, we’ll talk about what’s wrong with the way most of us work and four components of working in a wild new way. We’ll discuss how to make work work for you instead of living at the mercy of your inbox or your supervisor.
From 10 - 11 PST on November 22nd, I'll be fielding any questions you have about your worklife, live online!
Questions could range from the job search process to how you can create a career you love. You could ask about a gnarly situation you're in at work, or about how to survive in a job you know is the wrong fit. Any and all work-related topics are welcome!
We'll be meeting on my Facebook page, chattin' it up and learning together for an hour. This will be more fun than refreshing your email at work while everyone just waits to leave for the Thanksgiving holiday, I promise.

I'd love to have you there! Of course, if you have a more complex issue you want help with, my Dear Megan column is always available.
Strong communication skills are in high demand in today’s workplace, but there’s more to being a good communicator than practicing active listening or paraphrasing what you hear. Many of us miss out on important insights - insights that could really transform problems - because we’ve forgotten how to drop in and communicate on a more intuitive level.
What would our workplaces look like if we returned to a more natural, humane state of working?
What would our lives look like if we worked in rhythm with our bodies and the world around us?
The rewilding movement has focused primarily on returning the land to its more natural state, but this movement has something to say about our worklives as well - if we’ll listen.
This is a free, 9-part question and answer series focused on how to create more freedom, abundance, and beauty in our worklives. We'll explore what it means to have wild - and more natural - careers in the context of a private LinkedIn group I'm calling A Wild New Work.
