Ep #224: How to Turn Your Big Impact into Executive-Level Influence

You’ve done things at your organization that no one else could do.


That impact hasn’t translated into the recognition, title, or money you want, right?

Here’s the problem:

When it comes to earning your seat at the leadership table, influence matters more than impact.

The power of influence is that it allows you to completely shift how the leadership team perceives you. 

It helps you transform the impact you are having into stories that not only highlight your accomplishments – but also demonstrates what a badass leader you already are.

So how do you transform the impact you make into tangible influence that gets you what you want?

And how do you do this while staying true to your authentic, powerful self?

In this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’ll guide you through my process for turning your impacts into influence using real-life examples from six of my clients.

Let’s get started.

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.
