Well, hello, my friend, and welcome to the Coach with Clarity podcast. I'm your host Lee Chaix McDonough and I am so excited to have you joining me today. Today's episode is a fun one. I had the honor of interviewing my very good friend Melody Wilding, who is an executive and leadership coach for sensitive strivers. Now, if you are wondering, what is the sensitive striver? Well, we are going to go into that and so much more in today's episode. I have known Melody for almost three years and I can tell you without a doubt she is one of the most compassionate, genuinely empathetic people I've ever met. And the impact that she's had on my business and on my life is immeasurable. So I am so grateful that she is coming on the show to share with us more about what it means to be a sensitive striver, how we can negotiate our own lives if we identify as sensitive strivers, and most importantly, how as coaches, we can support our clients who are sensitive strivers. So let's get right to it. Here is my interview with executive and leadership coach Melody Wilding.
