Ep #2: Why You Should Stop Doing What You’re Good At


Over the next couple of weeks, I am walking you through my step-by-step process that I use with all my 1on1 clients to get them the promotion and recognition they deserve.

I am not holding anything back.  My exact 4- step process is: be willing to let go of what you are good at, become a walking billboard for your desires, build your own personal board of directors and allow opportunities to come to you.  

Coaching to me is all about telling it to you like I see it and that sometimes means pointing out exactly what you should STOP doing.  So this week, I am starting there. I’ll be highlighting the common mistakes managers make when they continue to rely on what they are good at to get ahead and offer suggestions on what you can do better.

What you think is making you a shoe in for your next promotion, could actually be getting in your way. Today, I’ll be talking about not just what you should stop doing but what you can do instead. I'll show you exactly what to let go of and what to keep doing.

And give you the #1 strategy you can use to take your career to that next level.

To celebrate this launch, I am giving you 3 action packed episodes all at once.  Click to learn more about Ep #1 and Ep #3.
