I have always been a driven and goal-oriented professional, who put in long hours to hit deadlines and sales quotas; however, all of my efforts would have gone unnoticed unless I created visibility within my company. Megan Ragsdale coached me to develop the skills of creating visibility with upper management and C-Suite executives, increasing my business acumen and expanding my network – both internally and externally. Once I practiced and developed these skills, I was quickly promoted to a people management role, negotiated a pay raise and became a well-respected professional within my industry. Megan is an approachable, confident and experienced leader who has the track record of identifying actionable items to help one attain goals and elevate one’s career. I would not have the professional successes that I have achieved today without the coaching and mentorship of Megan Ragsdale

I'm Megan Ragsdale. 
If you're ready, I'll be your new coach.

Greatness, making an impact, living a fulfilled life: you know you have it in you, but you don't know how to get to it. It's frustrating as hell, and you've struggled enough. That's where I come in.

I will help you become the best possible version of yourself.

Why can I break through that wall that you're hitting if you haven't been able to? 

Because I have the right tools to do it.

I use the principles of purpose-driven innovation to give you the powerful insights, guidance, and support you need to break out of your current box and start making a bigger impact in your personal and professional life.  

I've built this experience over 20 years of leaving my blood, sweat, and tears in the trenches - from Global Fortune 500 businesses to small local start-ups.

Twenty years of winning, losing, succeeding, failing, watching, doing….

I didn't just read a bunch of business books and curate the best practices for you. I've done the work myself.  From managing large international teams and hundreds of millions of dollars in budgets to leading successful initiatives, and even some failed ones. From creating jobs and traveling the world, to learning how to act like an entrepreneur inside a large company. I've been schooled in top notch innovation design methodologies, and I've built innovation programs and processes from scratch.  I've coached executives, entry-level sales associates, and start-up founders. I've been mentored by great leaders, and managed by terrible ones. I've built a great network of top leaders that I can tap into to make sure my clients are getting the best resources possible. Through years of changing roles and companies, I've amassed priceless knowledge about how to reignite your workforce and bottom line through innovation, navigate the business world, and how to not sacrifice yourself in the process.  

This knowledge is your blueprint to getting what you want, FASTER. 

If you and I are going to work together, there's a few last things you should know about me.  In addition to my business experience, I'm a certified coach (CLC). In my personal life, I wear a lot of hats, like you: author, inventor, worker, spouse, parent, sibling, and friend. I am uncompromising on my beliefs, which are: that all people should be treated fairly and equally, that you can and should have a sense of humor about most things, that you should help others reach their goals and can influence people to do better, that creativity, innovation and education are values to live by, that giving back is a must. If you're made of similar stuff and are ready to make an impact on the world, we're a perfect match.

So let's get to work. Play to your strengths, get focused on what you want, and create a plan that will transform you from being the person who talks about doing great things to the person actually doing them.

Ready to GSD? Let's get started.  Contact me here and we'll get the ball rolling.
