Ep #146: How to Accelerate Your Executive Presence in Just 15-Minutes a Week

Have you been told you need to work on your “executive presence”?

I’ve spent most of my career avoiding this term for two main reasons:

1. It’s almost exclusively said to women by their male bosses 🚩🚩🚩

2. And it’s the kind of advice that’s easy to say but hard to actually turn into action 🚩🚩🚩

All too often: ‘You need to work on your executive presence’ = ‘You need to act more like the rest of the people in the room’.

(⚠️ And spoiler alert: the rest of the people in the room are men.)

But I’ve been reflecting on this word lately, and I’ve come to realize that I DO believe in executive presence…

…but not the way you’ve been taught about it.

So in this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I am going to show you the real way to accelerate your executive presence using an easy-to-follow step-by-step process so you can finally get the opportunities, money, recognition, and title you deserve.

And the good news is, all it’s going to take is 15-minutes a week.

Let’s get started.

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.
