Ep #217: Get Promoted Faster By Co-Writing Your Career Development Plan

Has your boss ever created a career development plan for you…

…and nothing really happened?

Months or even years go by and you still:

😒 Don’t have the promotion.

😒 Aren’t making more money.

😒 And your career is basically the same? 🤷‍♀️

Does this mean your boss doesn’t care about you?


It just means that:

1. It’s YOUR job to make your promotion happen, and…

2. Relying on your boss to do all the work to get you promoted is usually a career dead end.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to show you how to create a super effective career development plan with your boss and I’m going to give you my step-by-step process for turning that plan into reality so you can fast track your next promotion.

If you’re sick of waiting months or years for a promised promotion that never comes, this episode is for you.

Let’s dive in.
