The corporate world is tough to navigate. Strong, confident, and competent leaders are needed to help companies evolve to the next level.
Sometimes our traumas give us superpowers. Monique had a rough start, early childhood abuse, teen wedding, and addictive behavior. By any measure she had the deck stacked against her. But, she pushed on and climbed. While ascending the corporate ladder she started seeing things that triggered her past. Microtraumas, aggressive tones, and toxic patterns. Her early life experience gave her a sixth sense for abuses of power. Now she’s an executive coach that helps companies to create a healthy and trauma-informed workplace. Tune in to see how she turned her wounds into strength.
Monique Daigneault, president and CEO of MD Consulting speaks with Chris Meek about her role as an executive coach with over three decades of experience developing corporate executives into successful leaders.
