Marcia Reynolds, PsyD is fascinated by the brain, especially the nuances of the female brain. She is an organizational psychologist and master certified coach with an emphasis on the needs and challenges of today's smart, strong women. She travels around the world coaching, speaking at conferences and teaching classes in leadership, emotional intelligence and organizational change.
Though there has been much chatter about the number of women now (finally) reaching the top of the corporate ladder and finding success in many other ways, Marcia Reynolds talks about the way women, themselves, are changing!
In her new book: Wander Woman: How High-Achieving Women Find Contentment and Direction, Dr. Reynolds “draws on solid research and a wealth of personal experience to identify an emerging identity among high-achieving women.” Wander women, as she calls them, are gutsy, confident, high achievers who are past dealing with the same roadblocks in the work world that their mothers and grandmothers did. They are forging their own way and speaking up!
However, these women also feel unfulfilled and restless. They fear they are not living up to their utmost potential and being exactly who they could be, personally and professionally. To solve this, they often wander from job to job or career to career, in search of fulfillment; but this sometimes leaves them feeling more confused, anxious, and exhausted.
So, in her book, Dr. Reynold’s job is to be the master coach that she is and show “wander women” how to make strategic life decisions and express their power authentically. The decisions are not only smarter, they are more spiritually grounded. She also shares the "social, political, and historical forces" that are shaping this new identity in women. This book is an inspirational as well as useful read.
In addition to Wander Woman, Dr. Reynold's authored the book Outsmart Your Brain and has been quoted in many publications including Harvard Communications Newsletter, U.S. Business Review, The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times and she has appeared on ABC World News and National Public Radio.
