Welcome to Your Worthy Career, a podcast with me, Melissa Lawrence. I’m a career and life coach with all the corporate credit and talent development and organizational psychology. I help women like you get extraordinary results by being more you, not less. I won’t just help you have a career experience worthy of you, but I will help you 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’re 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. Your up-level begins now. 

Hello and welcome to this week’s episode of the podcast. This episode is all about our enrollment of Beyond the Ceiling. This is my personalized coaching group where you upgrade your career as a woman in pharma or biotech. I help women who work in pharma or biotech who have had some success in their career and are ready to take their career to the next level and disrupt the industry norms. My clients are women in pharma or biotech who know how to deliver, but they don’t know how to break through the male-dominated space and influence those around them to do work they love, getting better paid, and working less without playing all of the political games that exist in the industry. They know how to get good performance reviews, and they know how to drive their career, but sometimes get caught up in overthinking and perfectionism. They know that they have good ideas, and if they just knew what they wanted or how to get their ideas heard, work would be easier. They know their growth is to be more strategic and to try a different approach, but they’re not sure what. And they’re not sure what they’re missing. They know they have room to grow personally and professionally.

They just have a hard time seeing what their options are because sometimes it can just seem impossible to get ahead. The problem is you’ve worked really hard to get where you are, but sometimes feel like you’re driving your career in the wrong direction. You’re not always recognized for the hard work you put in, and it sometimes feels like it’s a losing race because the same people, even with less experience than you, are the ones getting recognized or promoted. It looks like other people know exactly what they want, but you feel like you have a bigger impact to make and aren’t really sure what to do, so you might feel a little bit stuck. You want to know what you want out of your career to actually enjoy work and have energy at the end of the day, stop overthinking everything and be confident you’re in the right place and going to look back on your career without any regrets. In fact, knowing that you left a legacy of importance and that your time was spent well, that you gave time to your family and your loved ones and things that you love that you took care of yourself, but you also had a really kick-ass career.

Now, in order to achieve a career you really love, you know that you have to figure out exactly what you want and to have the skills to stand out in a talented and competitive industry like the one we work in pharma or biotech. You also have to know how to advocate for yourself even when it’s uncomfortable, and you have to be able to create the lifestyle that you want outside of work so that you can spend time on what matters to you in your personal life and are able to take care of yourself while still getting exceptional performance reviews, salary bumps, and clearing out the obstacles to the path that you see yourself on in the long term. Now, this sounds like it might be hard, but it’s actually quite simple to achieve when you work with me and Beyond the Ceiling. Inside Beyond the Ceiling, I teach you five specific things, how to enjoy the job you have right now, even if it’s not a good fit for you because your life is happening right now. Even if your job is just a little bit away, a few weeks away, a month away, a few months away, a year away, you don’t need to wait to feel better now to work the way that you want to work, to be on meaningful projects, and to get paid the way that you should to have a good relationship with everyone around you, why would you wait to have it?

You can have it right now. The first thing is, again, like I said, to how to enjoy the job you have right now, even if it’s not a good fit for you in the long term. You also learn how to get promoted and get up to a 40% salary increase, how to know exactly what you want in your career now and the next three years so you can drive your career in the right direction. You also learn how to get a new job, even with layoffs, and the industry constantly changing. Finally, how to navigate the complexities of work from difficult bosses, frustrating coworkers that keep you up at night, demanding timelines, budget restraints, and projects that just suck the life out of you. Now, you may need one or all of those things, but either way, you are covered inside, Beyond the Ceiling. You upgrade your current job, you upgrade to a promotion faster than you would otherwise, you upgrade to a new job or company, even with obstacles that you might see in your way right now. You achieve one or all of these things, and at the end of the day, you have the career that you want to have, and you have it without working more hours, without sacrificing your values, or letting anyone down at work or at home.

Now, this is a live coaching program and it is four powerful months with a two-hour kickoff event that you attend virtually. Proven processes and tools that you apply, you’re not just learning, you are applying them to disrupt the industry to upgrade your career as a woman in pharma or biotech. You get four months of powerful group coaching twice per week. A network of other talented women in pharma or biotech to build relationships with, to grow with, and to network with. The investment is $7,500 in full. Payment plans are also available. I teach you the best career and personal development strategies for women in pharma biotech, and you apply them with me and a small group of women in the industry. This program was created with busy women like you in mind. So if you’re thinking you don’t have enough time, I have you covered. Whether you work in the lab or the manufacturing floor, or in an office setting, you will get just what you need.
