Ep #193: Transitioning into Executive Leadership Outside Your Subject Matter Expertise

There’s a super simple and easy way you can:

💥 Switch to a whole new area of expertise…

💥 Move to a totally different department or industry…

💥 Or return to work years after having kids…

…while still advancing to the executive suite and without “starting over” or being overqualified and underpaid.

It’s called thinking and communicating like an executive leader.

And what do executive leaders do?

We don’t lead with our subject matter expertise.

But we do lead with our badass (and highly transferable) executive leadership skills.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to show you how to use your executive leadership skills (and not your technical skills) to bridge the gap between the role you have now and the role you really want.

If you’ve been dreaming of transitioning into the executive suite but you don’t want to be pigeonholed into taking your boss’s job, this is a must-listen episode for you.

Let’s get started.
