Ep #142: How Working Remotely Actually Helps You Build Better Executive Relationships
There’s a popular idea out there that it’s harder to collaborate, build key relationships, and get promoted when you work remotely.
And I’m calling BS. 💩
You can head into the office every single day and still have zero relationships with the executive team.
You can work 50, 70, 90 hours a week and still not understand what you actually need to do to get promoted at your organization.
Getting promoted to the executive suite has nothing to do with how much face time you put in around the water cooler.
But it has everything to do with getting intentional about your career.
Because, when you’re intentional about your career, you stop hoping to bump into your CEO in the hallway and you schedule a 15-Minute Ally Meeting with them instead.
When you get intentional about your career, you stop hoping that your boss will promote you, and you start building relationships with leaders three levels up so you can land the promotion, no matter what your current boss thinks of you.
So in this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to show you how working remotely can actually be the key to getting in the driver’s seat of your career, building your executive leadership skills AND advancing to the executive suite on YOUR terms.
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.
