Ep #180: Break the Burnout Cycle and Rediscover Your Greatness with Christy Rutherford

I will never teach you how to hustle your way to the executive suite.

The work I do on this podcast and in my coaching programs is not designed to get you your next promotion at all costs.

Look at it this way:

If you focus solely on getting your next promotion – without taking care of yourself in all aspects of your life – you are going to arrive at the leadership table already burnt out and unable to make the impact you always dreamed of making.

This is NOT my vision for you and your career.

Which is exactly why I’m so excited to have Christy Rutherford on this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer.

Christy was the 13th African American woman to achieve the rank of Commander in the U.S. Coast Guard and today she works as an executive coach who helps women get promoted using office politics and self-care.

In this episode, we dive into how you can break free of the burnout cycle, re-discover the corporate badass woman you already are, and get the title and compensation you actually deserved all along.

Let’s dive in.

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.

What You'll Learn:

  • Why your next promotion is a byproduct of you getting happy, healthy, and whole
  • Why so many women arrive at the leadership table already burnt out and having to constantly defend their seat
  • Christy’s own experience with burnout (despite being a highly respected leader in her space)
  • Christy’s process for getting clear on what you really want from your life and career
  • Why we fear losing everything – even though we have everything to gain
