Ep #128: The REAL Reason Why You Need to Go for the Promotion

“I don’t even know why I’m trying to get promoted anymore.”

We had about five minutes left in a group coaching call when one of my clients raised her hand and said this.

She had been working with me for almost a year and had been crushing it in her career and…I get it.

This kind of comment, this kind of feeling, is so, so common for the type of corporate badasses I work with.

If you’re getting lots of accolades, landing promotions, securing higher and higher pay raises…you may start to look around and wonder…

What is all this REALLY for?

The truth is, a lot of women stop advancing in their careers once they hit the senior manager level.

And it’s not because they don’t have what it takes to advance to upper levels of leadership.

But it is because they don’t always like what they see.

The women I work with want the title, the income, the influence, and the power, but they don’t want it to hoard for themselves.

They want power with people, not over people.

They want unlimited funds so they can pour their money into people and organizations that matter.

And they want to use their influence to not just get themselves promoted, but to transform how their organization does business from the C-Suite out.

So if you’ve ever wondered ‘what’s this all for?’, then you need to tune into this episode.

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’m diving into why your next promotion really does matter and I’m going to show you all the things you can reject as you make your way to the top.
