Ep #231: How to Get Promoted When There’s “No Room at the Top”

I understand how demotivating it can be to know you deserve a seat at the table…

…but every single role seems permanently filled.

And it’s doubly frustrating when your organization champions diversity and inclusion…

Yet every executive position is currently held by a man.

So what’s a corporate badass to do?

Well, you could spend years waiting to be rewarded for your hard work…

Or you could settle for the status quo…

Or, as I’ll show you in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, you can step back, reassess, and create a plan to get yourself promoted—whether inside your current organization or outside.

In this episode, I share actionable strategies and real-world case studies showing how the women I work with have successfully landed the high-level leadership roles they deserve.

And I explain why it’s crucial to develop executive communication skills and how to position yourself as a current leader, not just a future one.

If you’re ready to stop waiting for a seat at the table and start claiming your spot now, this episode is for you.

Let’s dive in.
