About Gretchen

My name is Gretchen, and I teach purpose-driven women how to make the world of work ๐‘พ๐‘ถ๐‘น๐‘ฒ for them.

I am a career and leadership development coach with a background in corporate Marketing, Leadership and Employee Development. I teach women how to lead with authenticity and power so that they can increase their income, expand their professional influence and create opportunity for others.

1๏ธโƒฃ Youโ€™re frustrated because youโ€™re not able to take your career to the next level.
2๏ธโƒฃ You donโ€™t have someone you can turn to for professional guidance and support.
3๏ธโƒฃ Some part of you believes youโ€™re not further along because your success is some sort of fluke -- and youโ€™re terrified youโ€™ll be โ€˜found outโ€™.

One of my clients felt like she had to make ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜‚๐—น๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ for work and wasnโ€™t a โ€˜corporate fitโ€™ after taking time off to care for a family member.

She returned to an environment of reduced authority and opportunity and didnโ€™t know what to do.

We started with an exercise I call "Mine Your Mind", which is a series of questions that chip away the clutter of what you don't want, reveal your most transferrable skills, and clearly outline more suitable career options.

We discussed flat companies, flexible and rotating scheduling and other concepts designed to broaden her understanding of how she could do her best work โ€“ an exercise that helped her separate the work from the environment, which turned out to be her biggest block!

She decided to pursued her creative career with a boutique agency instead of a big company, and she's now a director with an equity stake.
