Episode Image - Executive Ahead of Time Part 1 - Gaining Influence

You’ve definitely heard me give this advice before: act like you are in the job you want, not the job you have.

And while most of you understand that this advice is one of the best shortcuts to success that you can take, you may be struggling to figure out how to actually make it happen.

That’s why I’m dedicating the rest of August to my three-part podcast series: Executive Ahead of Time.

In each episode of this series, I will be focusing on one of the core things corporate leaders need if they want to get (and keep) their next big promotion: Influence, Impact, and Energy.

So, if you want to have more influence and a bigger impact in your organization (starting TODAY) while ALSO having the energy you’ll need to sustain yourself over time, then make sure you tune into each episode of the Executive Ahead of Time series.

In this first episode of the series, I will show you the three areas you’ll need to master if you want to build more influence in your organization.

I'm offering a free Live webinar series on "4 Steps to Scale Yourself to the C-Suite (No Matter What)" If you want to develop the skills I teach you on my podcast so that you can finally get the recognition you deserve, sign up at stacymayer.com/csuite and learn how.  There are limited spots, so don't hesitate to sign up.

What You'll Learn:

  • The biggest mistakes corporate leaders make when it comes to cultivating influence at work
  • Why you need to shift your focus from your “Circle of Concern” to your “Circle of Influence”
  • How forming the wrong allies can seriously hinder your opportunities for a promotion
  • Why understanding yourself is key to becoming an influencer in your organization (and how to do it)
