Rise: Finding Your Executive Voice

As a leader:

  • Are you your harshest critic?

  • Do your doubts and fears stop you from speaking up?

  • Do you hesitate when giving feedback or leading others?

  • Are you cautious about championing new initiatives at work?


Mallory struggled with these questions as well as the concept of executive presence, influencing others, and the feelings of not being good enough. Frustrated, she sought the guidance of an executive coach. What followed their first meeting is a rare glimpse into the trials and triumphs of their amazing work together. Pay close attention, and you’ll see how her insights throughout this book can shorten your own path to leadership. 


How do you tackle the tough issues you’re facing? Guided by Mallory’s evolution, you will apply specific tools that will change how you show up at work. Most importantly, you’ll learn to authentically become the confident leader you want to be.
