Ep #173: How to Use Your Anger to Transform the Leadership Table

Let’s be real:

Work can kind of suck sometimes.

And showing up like a corporate badass can be super hard when you’re dealing with a ton of turmoil, frustration, and quite frankly, anger over what’s happening at your organization or the world as a whole.

I’m right there with you.

And while it’s hard to deal with the layoffs and reorgs and fear happening in the world right now, it’s also firing something up inside of me and driving me to action, to really get up on my soapbox and say something.

You might be feeling that pull as well. That pull of: “I’ve had enough!”

And there are ways you can use this anger to work for you and your career – and to get yourself promoted so you can make the change you desperately want to see at your organization and in the world.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to share how I have been coaching my clients to advance their careers by leaning into that anger – while ALSO not letting it control them.

If you want to release the unproductive anger that keeps you stuck and lean into the productive anger that fires you up to be heard and to truly make a change at your organization and beyond, then this episode is for you.

Let’s get started.
