Ep #178: My Leadership Mission to Give Agency to All Women in Corporate

The vast majority of corporate women don’t have any agency at work.


Because the corporate structure was literally set up to prevent us from having it.

So if you feel like a corporate badass, yet you’re waiting for your next performance review to get promoted, you don’t have enough agency.

If you feel guilty every time you leave early to pick your kids up from school, you don’t have enough agency.

If you’re worried to death about being laid off – or you fall into a deep despair when you are – you don’t have enough agency.

A lack of agency is at the root of so much of the pain and suffering you may be experiencing in your career right now.

But helping you reclaim your agency so you can find your voice and create a life and career that truly belongs to you is at the heart of every single thing I teach.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I reveal why agency is the key to unlocking every single thing you truly want from your career.

Let’s get started.
