Ep #221: How to Use Leadership Storytelling to Be Seen as an Executive Leader

The fastest way to be recognized as an executive leader is to start communicating like one.

That’s why executive communication isn’t just a leadership skill…

It’s actually the entire foundation for every single other leadership skill you’ll need to master as you advance to the executive suite.

It’s the secret to:

🎁 Getting the resources you need to get yourself out of the weeds.

💡 Having the CEO come to YOU for advice because they value your ideas.

📣 Having a strong voice at the table because you communicate solutions, not just problems.

And the easiest way to start showing off your executive communication skills TODAY is to start telling better stories.

📚Better stories to your boss.

📚Better stories to the executive team.

📚 And better stories to yourself.

In this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m walking you through my unique leadership storytelling process so you can be recognized as the brilliant executive you are, land the roles you truly want, and be highly valued (and paid) for the impact you have at your organization.

Let’s dive in.
