PAST CLIENTS AT

Have you spent most of your career wondering any of the following?

 Why can’t I stop taking everything that happens at work so personally?

Does everyone analyze conversations with their co-workers and boss this much?

Am I the only one petrified to push back, say no, and disagree?

Why does criticism stick with me for days while others seem unbothered?

Is something wrong with me because I think and feel everything so deeply?

Maybe you’re confused as to why self-doubt, overwhelm, or people-pleasing hit you harder.

You look around and see colleagues navigating their workdays with what appears to be effortless grace. Yet there you are, wrestling with the same insecurities day in and day out. 

What’s even more frustrating is not understanding why you can’t seem to break these cycles. This lack of insight into your own reactions leaves you feeling powerless and, at times, defeated. 

Why can’t you just get a grip on these patterns? Why do they have such a hold over you?

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'VE TRIED EVERYTHING TO "FIX YOURSELF"...

Naturally, you conclude there must be a defect with YOU. You must be broken or flawed, right?

You're not broken. You're a Sensitive Striver.

A high-achiever who’s more attuned to their emotions, the world, and the behavior of those around them, which means...

See, you’re different from nearly 80% of people in the workplace. Your sensitivity is not a choice, nor is it a defect. It’s simply part of your biology.

shape

Here's what I know after a decade researching and coaching thousands of Sensitive Strivers…

When you don’t understand your wiring, your habits, your tendencies and patterns as a Sensitive Striver, that’s exactly when you fall into self-sabotage.

While your unique qualities are what make you highly perceptive, creative, and dedicated in your work – if left unchecked – they can also become a source of strife.

Because when innate sensitivity and ambition meet, it can feel like quicksand. Emotional reactivity, overthinking, and an obsession with external validation pull you down into a pit of despair that can be hard to get out of.

The truth is, without identifying the root causes of these patterns, changing them will continue to feel impossible.

Your habits of overthinking, people-pleasing, and emotional reactivity won’t just disappear. You have to DO something about them. 

The good news is...

When you identify, troubleshoot, and create a plan to tackle your automatic responses, you regain a well-deserved sense of confidence, calm, and control at work. 

Just imagine…

Meet Your Executive Coaches

Melody Wilding, LMSW

Over the last 12 years, I’ve shown thousands of professionals worldwide how to regain their confidence, stop overthinking, channel  their sensitivity at work.

Named one of Insider‘s Most Innovative Coaches, I’m the best-selling author of Trust Yourself: Stop Overthinking and Channel Your Emotions for Success at Work, contributor to Harvard Business Review, and Linkedin Top Voice. 

But what you might not know is that my entire body of work is the result of pain and shame I’ve struggled with. 

See, growing up, I felt like an oddball. When I entered the professional world, my sensitivity and ambition ran amok – driving me to overthink, overwork, overgive, and more.  

But my internal war transformed into a life-changing mission. 

I had no choice but to use my background as a therapist and my training in psychology and human behavior to discover how to channel my unique combination of qualities to work for me instead of against me. 

My proprietary STRIVE Diagnostic is here to make sure no other Sensitive Striver feels weak, incapable, or insecure like I did.

This tool is based on decades of research on the science of high sensitivity and high-achievement. It gives you a picture of your strengths… as well as where you’re standing in your own way. 

Wendy Cary, ACC

Having worked closely with Melody for two years, Wendy is the only coach in the world trained in Melody’s methodology.
After hitting burnout for a second time in her 30-year corporate career, Wendy discovered she’s highly sensitive, and joined Melody’s inaugural cohort of RESILIENT, which changed her life.

For the first time, Wendy discovered how to tame her imposter syndrome, ask for what she needed, and embrace her high sensitivity as a strength.

Through applying the insights from her own STRIVE Diagnostic, she learned to understand and accept her high sensitivity, ease her stress through emotional regulation, and treat her own needs as equal to others’ needs.

Now as certified executive coach, she’s helped hundreds of Sensitive Strivers overcome perfectionism, imposter syndrome, and their belief that working harder is the answer to being accepted, fitting in, and getting promoted.

Wendy is known for providing her clients with more awareness of their mindset and has a knack for explaining things in a very clear, concise, and relatable way.

She’s helped clients achieve a 77% increase in their ability to regulate emotions at work, an 83% increase in feeling grounded in high-stakes situations, relief from insomnia, improvement in physical health due to stress reduction, and much more!

Now you have a choice to make...

➡️ How much longer you can afford to tolerate the same old self-sabotaging patterns at work and in your career?

➡️ How many more hours – or days – are you willing to waste on thought spirals? 

➡️ How many more nights and weekends can you tolerate overworking and missing out on precious time with family? 

➡️ How many more projects and opportunities can you stomach being passed over for because you’re afraid to step up? 

See, inaction is the most expensive choice you can make…

It can cost your thousands of dollars, but more importantly, it can cost you your confidence and inner peace. 

The STRIVE Diagnostic can change that. 

This isn’t just another assessment tool. It’s your roadmap out of the cycle of stress and self-sabotage. 

You’ll pinpoint the exact sources of your work-related woes and gain the clarity you’ve been missing to make transformative changes. 

But knowledge alone isn’t enough, which is why you’ll also receive a private 90-minute coaching session to equip you with a personalized game plan to conquer them.

If there’s one thing I know about you as a Sensitive Striver, it’s that you always want to do more and be better

But sometimes, you can only get out of your way with expert guidance. 

So ask yourself, what could you achieve if doubt and stress no longer held you back?

Where could you be a month from now with crystal-clear clarity and a strategy tailored just for you?

The cost of finding out is minimal compared to the price of continuing on your current path. 

The real question is, can you afford not to take action?

In the past, the only way to access this proprietary diagnostic was to invest up to $3,000 to join our RESILIENT coaching program. 

We can’t wait to work with you!

Investing a bit of time now could actually end up saving you loads of time later.

Claiming your STRIVE Diagnostic Debrief is key to no longer feeling like a prisoner to patterns like:

  • Endless overthinking at work. Break free from the cycle of second-guessing every decision and endlessly analyzing “what if” scenarios 
  • Chronic people-pleasing in meetings. Stop automatically saying “yes” to every request to set healthy boundaries that respect your time and priorities.
  • Paralyzing perfectionism. Move beyond the need for every project to be flawless, allowing yourself to progress and innovate without fear of minor imperfections.
  • Persistent self-doubt. Overcome the internal critic that questions your expertise and learn to trust your instincts and abilities with renewed confidence in high-stakes situations

You might be thinking, “Hey, isn’t the STRIVE diagnostic in Melody’s book, Trust Yourself? Why not just use that?”

It’s true, I introduced the diagnostic in my book Trust Yourself, and it’s a good start. But in the over 3 years since that book launched, we’ve enhanced the STRIVE Diagnostic.  We’ve broken it down into finer details, zooming in on each aspect to give you a sharper, clearer picture of what’s going on with you. So you can more precisely hone in on the areas you want to improve. 

And yes, the book is helpful, but going through the diagnostic alone is like trying to solve a puzzle without the picture on the box. You might figure out some pieces, but it’s easy to miss the big picture or mix up a few parts. 

That’s where your coaching intensive changes the game. Imagine having someone who knows the ins and outs of the puzzle, guiding you, showing you shortcuts, and helping you avoid dead ends. That’s what you get with Wendy. She’s not just trained; she’s seasoned in getting to the heart of what each part of your diagnostic really means—and how you can use it to get ahead. 

It’s one thing to read a map, but it’s another to have a guide who’s walked the path many times. 

See, waiting to read the book first often sounds like a reasonable plan. But let’s be real—this is usually just a procrastination tactic. 

I know because I’ve been there! We tell ourselves we’re doing the responsible thing by researching more, when really, we’re just delaying the actual work and PROGRESS. 

Think about it: while you’re spending hours, weeks, or months reading the book, you could already be making strides in understanding and tackling your overthinking, overworking, people-pleasing and more with greater speed and clarity.

As a fellow Sensitive Striver, I totally get this. It’s understandable to feel like you should be able to handle things on your own, especially when you’re a high achiever used to excelling. You might even feel a bit embarrassed or reluctant to admit that you need help, worrying that it might reflect poorly on your abilities or independence.

But, it’s important to recognize that seeking guidance isn’t a sign of weakness; it’s a strategy for strength. It’s a shortcut. The reality is, even the highest performers—CEOs, top athletes—they all have coaches. Why? Because they know the value of an external expert who can spot what they can’t.

The STRIVE Diagnostic combined with expert analysis from Wendy Cary, can pinpoint the specific areas where you’re unknowingly sabotaging your own success. 

But let me ask you this: how long have you been trying to solve these issues by yourself? If you’re like many high achievers, you might have been circling around the same challenges for years, making slow progress, if any. Is continuing to spin your wheels really the best use of your time and energy?

While you might feel like “this is just how I am,” the STRIVE Diagnostic does more than just identify your traits—it explores how these characteristics interact and influence each other, and more importantly, how they impact your day-to-day actions and decisions. For instance, your drive for perfection might be affecting your ability to complete tasks efficiently, or your sensitivity might be influencing how you handle feedback or conflict. Understanding these dynamics is crucial for making meaningful changes.

You see, awareness is the first step, but knowing exactly what to do with that information is what really brings about change. Wendy doesn’t just tell you about your patterns; she provides a clear, customized action plan. This plan includes specific, manageable steps that are directly targeted to address the imbalances the diagnostic uncovers. Whether it’s learning new coping mechanisms, adjusting your work habits, or changing your communication style, each recommendation is tailored to ensure you can start implementing changes right away.

This structured approach helps you move from insight to action, transforming “this is just how I am” into “this is how I can grow and improve.” 

My team and I are her to help. Email us at hello@melodywilding.com with your question and we’ll get back to you within one business day.
