Ep #147: Stop Trying to Fix Your Boss and Advance Your Career Instead

Which would you rather do:

🤔 Fix your boss?

🤔 Or get promoted to the executive suite?

Because you can only pick one.

The desire to fix your boss is something that’s come up a lot recently inside my Executive Ahead of Time and Leadership Table coaching programs.

And to be honest, it’s something that’s come up in my business recently as well.

(ie. I have also been the boss that someone wanted to fix.)

The problem with fixing your boss is that it holds you back from doing what you need to do to advance your career.

And the solution is to stop working on your boss and to start working on yourself.

So in this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’ll give you a very specific, actionable process so you can stop trying to fix your boss and step into your unique executive presence instead.

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.
