Ep #236: Why Women’s Conferences Don’t Work and How to Fix Them

Do you ever feel like women’s leadership conferences are more about fixing us than celebrating us?

It’s so common to show up to a women’s leadership conference and hear talk after talk on topics like:

🙄 How to fix your imposter syndrome.

🙄 How to take bigger risks.

🙄 How to find a mentor or sponsor to help you with your career.

Notice a trend here?

But what if instead of trying to fix women leaders…

💖 We celebrated them…

💖 Their power…

💖 And their accomplishments…

AND showed them they are ready for their next level of leadership NOW, exactly as they are?

In this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m flipping the script and diving into the right way—and the wrong way—to celebrate women leaders.

If you want to see more women own their power and their worth and be promoted into the positions of power and influence they already deserve, this episode is for you.

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.

What You'll Learn:

  • The insidious ways in which traditional women's leadership conferences talk down to women and how this holds us back from advancing in our careers.
  • A visualization technique for owning your power as a woman leader.
  • How the desire to protect women can stop us from promoting them.
  • How women’s boundaries sometimes prevent them from seizing career opportunities.
  • Why women need to have very direct conversations about what they want as leaders.
