#18 Dr. Rachel MK Headley and Meg Manke: How to Initiate Change

November 19, 2018

Dr. Rachel MK Headley and Meg Manke have a goal to positively impact 1 million lives by the end of 2019. Their mission is to change the way business is done; to help foster work environments where people feel satisfied, engaged, and heard.

Self-proclaimed “change people”, Dr. Rachel and Meg use the experience they have in the corporate world to fuel change in as many companies and individuals’ lives as possible. For example, Dr. Rachel and Meg saw a disconnect between organizations offering personality tests to their employees and using what’s learned with these exercises to better value others within the organizations themselves. This idea became the inspiration for their book, iX Leadership, in addition to the training and certification programs they offer to help improve performance, reduce turnover, and consequently change lives.

Whether you’re part of a corporation, have a small team, or are a solo-preneur, this conversation is full of helpful tips and strategies on how to create a work atmosphere that inspires change. No matter what age you are, you want to feel valued and you want to learn and grow.” I can’t wait for you to hear this conversation; listen to the full episode below!
