“Merideth provides you with practical tools to navigate the most pivotal moments in your career. Her insightful and thoughtful questions and anecdotes throughout the book help you to explore exactly what motivates you and discover what will bring you fulfillment and joy in the next phase of your career. Without Merideth’s keen assistance, I doubt I would have landed where I find myself today – in a new and exciting moment in my professional life.”
“In the 20 years I’ve known Mer, I’ve observed her excellence as a teammate, a leader and a coach. She has taught many, including me, lessons on leadership and growth using a style that injects equal doses of candor, compassion, and optimism. This book has distilled that wisdom into a practical framework that made me want to listen to her advice once more. This book is Mer.”
“Like most meaningful things in life, there is no guidebook on how to create and prosper in a fulfilling career.”. “Your Finest Work” helps you make your own guidebook to find your own North Star and implement a process of setting up a deliberate career path. Without this support, a career can be subject to the winds of chance, or can be stuck in the same path for years. With direction from “Your Finest Work”, you can take control of your own career directing it towards a meaningful future.”
“Merideth Mehlberg is an amazing listener, a thoughtful coach, and a great human with a lot of experience navigating around tricky career situations. She brings a level of honesty and authenticity to every interaction, which makes partnering with her a real joy. I was lucky enough to have the privilege of working with her as part of my leadership journey and am excited for the world to get a part of her thoughtful playbook through this book.”
“If you are looking to get to know yourself better, to claim your inner hopes and dreams, and live authentically the best life you can, read Your Finest Work. My 1-on-1 coaching with Merideth has been nothing short of profound. Yes, I advanced my career, my salary, and my title, but it’s the personal growth that’s made all the difference. Merideth helped me expand my vision of who I am and how I can be. How wonderful that the framework I used to live up to the potential of who I am at my best is now available here.”
“In her book, Your Finest Work, Merideth Mehlberg has accomplished what many books in this category fail to do. She has given the reader a clear path to fulfillment in their career and personal life. She does this through thoughtful questions and coaching examples that allow us to grab the reins of our life and see ourselves as the architects of our life experiences. Julian Rotter, a psychologist and brilliant thinker in the mid-twentieth century, called this “Internal Locus of Control.” People with this outlook see that they are in charge of how their lives turn out.
Conversely, those with an “External Locus of Control” experience themselves at the mercy of changing situations and circumstances. In this book, Merideth makes it possible for the reader to do the work to reclaim their sense of agency. Thank you for this gift.”
