Ep #191: Career Magic, Part 3: Curiosity

If you ask any of the corporate badasses I work with:

What got you to the level of success you’re at today?

They will have lots of different answers, but the main thread running through all of them would be:


It’s tempting to throw up your hands in frustration when there appears to be an immovable obstacle between you and your next promotion.

But this is where your curiosity comes in.

Because: Is it really immovable? Or is there another path around it that will get you to where you want to go?

Probably. But you won’t know until you get curious.

In this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m breaking down three ways you can start to use the magic of curiosity to advance to your next level of leadership.

This is Part 3 of my 3-part series, Career Magic. In each episode, I break down a different way you can use your unique career magic on purpose to create incredible results for yourself.
