personal development for high performers

Schedule an exploration call

We've been taught that our distress is something to suppress

For ambitious high performers, the pressure to appear like you've got it all together can feel even stronger. The sea of change can feel paralyzing, moving too fast to even begin to know where to start.

But imagine that your distress is a painful but powerful way to wake you up...​

It takes courage, but when maverick leaders begin to hear the wake up signals within their distress...guess what happens?

  • They get breakthrough insights.
  • They start new projects.
  • They develop deeper connections.
  • They become more of their authentic, whole selves.

Your Coach

Hi! I'm Meg Mateer, a former management consultant turned social entrepreneur and organizational psychologist.

​I believe that the smartest, most interesting innovative thinkers and leaders are the ones who have embraced their distress and used it to share their truth, start new projects, and transform their connections.

After all, one of my biggest life teachers was my experience of depression. I'm now on a mission to help you discover the world changing wisdom within your distress.

I believe that if we want to change this world that is breaking down, we have to start listening to the wisdom within each and every one of us.
