Ana Melikian

In this episode, I join Tammy at the Work from the Inside Out podcast to discuss unlocking human potential. We explore my academic journey and how I became fascinated with personal development at a young age. We discuss the several pivots I’ve made in my career and how I became a life coach.

We describe the systemic and cultural disruptions of the past few years and how organizations and leaders can respond effectively to change. We also highlight the relationship between business and personal problems and underscore the importance of doing inner work and having strong core values.
