Hello! Thank you for visiting this page.
Dr. Malissa McLean is a veteran of both the Army and Air Force, a member of the John Maxwell Team and, the Founder of Paragon Lifestyles, which is a certified micro - small, woman and minority (SWaM) owned business.
After spending numerous years serving our country, experiencing a few government shutdowns and dealing with her supervisors' abuse of power in the workforce, Dr. McLean knew there was a better way for her colleagues and employees to have improved circumstances. But there was once catch - they needed to want that for themselves. That’s why she is most interested in events that are focused on adding value to others. She frequently coaches groups through activities requiring moderation, facilitation, speaking, or panel participation.
Dr. McLean’s skills enable her to identify and remove barriers while further augmenting efforts for effective communication, increased self-awareness, and a boost in confidence. This is also evident in the name of her company - Paragon Lifestyles. Paragon means a person or thing viewed as a model of excellence. Paragon Lifestyles references a consistent commitment to a lifestyle of self-evaluation and self-improvement.
Another one of Dr. McLean’s passions is helping people realize their full potential by conquering feelings of fraud and fear of failure - overcoming the Impostor Phenomenon. You can read more of her research on the Impostor Phenomenon by cutting and pasting the following link into a web browser: http://jitm.ubalt.edu/XXVII-4/article1.pdf.
