Ep #40: How To “Brag” About Your Accomplishments The Right Way

It’s no secret. Most people feel uncomfortable when it comes to promoting themselves and their accomplishments.

At some point in your life, you’ve probably been told that it’s not polite to brag.

You may have even been told that people who are actually smart (or successful or talented) don’t feel the need to tell others about their abilities.

And that’s fine. I get it. No one likes a braggart.

But the problem arises when your desire to be modest about your achievements holds you back from getting promoted into a senior level executive position.

So how do you “brag” about the amazing things you’ve done without coming across as annoying or self-absorbed?

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I explain why modesty isn’t always the best way AND give you practical strategies for promoting your achievements without losing a part of yourself.

What You'll Learn:

  • When and where it’s appropriate to talk about your abilities – and when and where it’s not
  • A case study for sharing your accomplishments in a way that feels authentic to you
  • Why selling and marketing yourself becomes part of your job description as you advance into senior executive leadership positions
