Ep #132: 5 Women’s Leadership Tips You Can Use to Advance Your Career Right Now

I have a love-hate relationship with women’s leadership.

Earlier on in my career, I was a cookie cutter leadership coach for corporate women.

And this experience of training women to be amazing leaders is the foundation for all of the work I do today.

It’s the single thing that led me into executive coaching and I am so, so grateful for this foundation.


It has its downsides.

I’ve seen first hand how the standard women’s leadership advice could help women get better at their jobs…but not actually help them advance to the executive suite.

That’s why the work I’m doing on this podcast, in my book, and in my programs has grown beyond the standard women’s leadership advice.

I call it:

🔥 Women’s Leadership 2.0. 🔥

But even though I am all about this next-level style of women’s leadership, I know there are some critical building blocks from Women’s Leadership 1.0 that you may still be missing.

So in this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’m going back to basics and sharing five foundational skills that every woman leader needs to know.

Because, how can you do Women’s Leadership 2.0 if you still haven’t implemented some of the basic tips that I’m going to share with you in today’s episode?

Let’s dive in.

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.
