Ep #119: 3 Promotion Strategies Your Boss Will NEVER Tell You

Promotions ARE easy. The problem is, you are being given really bad advice.

Most of the strategies you hear on this podcast go against the grain of the advice you’re probably receiving elsewhere right now.

I’m talking about the advice you’re getting from:

😬 Your boss

But also…

😬 Your HR department

😬 Or that ‘high potential’ leadership program your organization enrolled you in

The issue is this:

This advice, by design, isn’t going to help you get promoted. And here’s why.

  1. Your boss’s job is to help you get better in the role you have right now.
  2. Your HR department’s job is to retain you, not promote you.
  3. Literally, every leader at your organization is responsible for making managers like YOU perform well…in your current role.

And while you’re probably receiving lots of advice on how to do things like…

🤷‍♀️ Manage your team better…

🤷‍♀️ Hit your deliverables…

🤷‍♀️ And manage your time…

…these aren’t the skills the leadership team is looking for when deciding whether or not to promote you to the executive suite.

But that totally-against-the-grain work I love to do? That kind of advice sets you up to reach and flourish at the executive level.

So that’s why I’m dedicating this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer to laying out three promotion strategies that your boss (or your HR department, or the leadership team) is NEVER going to tell you.

Tune in now to discover what you need to start doing differently if you really want to get yourself into those higher level executive positions.

Want to receive the recognition you deserve, step into a higher leadership position, get paid for your ideas instead of the hours you put in at work, and enjoy more time, freedom, energy, and joy? Then you need to get your hands on a copy of Promotions Made Easy. Get your copy here.
