Ep #1: How a Promotion is NOT a Reward for your Hard Work

Copy of podcast episode images

Welcome to the very first episode of the Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer podcast!

I am SO excited to be bringing you this show and sharing how you can begin to accelerate your career by still being true to yourself.

The Maximize Your Career podcast is a show for corporate managers to grow their career and make a bigger impact at their organization.  If you are struggling to get the recognition you deserve, there is nothing inherently wrong with you - you just lack the tools to move from management into leadership.

Each week, I’ll be sharing tools, ideas, and stories with you that will help you be a bolder, more confident leader.

In this very first episode, I want to share with you a little secret that could be the only thing getting in the way from you landing your next promotion.

As a leader, you know that it's imperative to meet deadlines.  You are likely able to set goals and achieve them when it comes to managing your team.  Then why is it so difficult to do that when it comes to your own professional development?

Simple.  It's the "work hard and get rewarded" mentality.

Today, I'll teach you a bit about what that means and why it's such a crucial mindset to overcome if you want to make it into the next level of leadership.

I’m so excited you’re here with me at the beginning of the show!

To celebrate this launch, I am giving you 3 action packed episodes all at once.  Click to learn more about Ep #2 and Ep #3.

What You'll Learn:

  • Exactly why a promotion is not a guarantee for your hard work.
  • How you may be holding yourself back from success in your career.
  • Why working hard and being good at your job can actually work against you.
  • What my clients are doing instead do get the recognition they deserve.
  • Why this first step could be the only step you need to take to gain traction in your career this year.
