Ep #219: The Problem with Corporate VIPs and How to Become an MVP Instead

Are you on the path to becoming an MVP or a VIP at your organization?

The difference may seem small, but focusing on the wrong path can create huge problems in your career.

VIPs are the high-level leaders you may be looking up to at your organization right now. They have power and influence and they’re often respected and even revered.

But here’s the problem:

As you advance to higher levels of leadership…you may come to realize that you don’t actually like them.

And when this happens – when you realize many of the VIPs you admired are actually total a-holes who don’t stand for anything as a leader – this can be incredibly demotivating for you and your career.

But in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to help you bypass this problem completely by showing you another path.

I’ll show you how focusing on being an MVP – NOT a VIP – will help you achieve everything you admire about VIPs (the title, pay, recognition, and voice) while also stepping into your authentic power and having a major impact as a leader.

If you’re the kind of corporate woman leader who’s motivated to use her power and influence to create the much-needed change you want to see at your organization and beyond – this episode is for you.

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.
