Ep #42: Why Your Organization/Boss Doesn’t Support Your Promotion (And What To Do About It)

This may sound counterintuitive, but your company isn’t hardwired to support your success.

Corporations have developed processes over the years (or decades) that are designed to support and protect the company.

Not you. The company.

So, your organization may provide leadership trainings here and there.

Or maybe they’ll show you how to be more productive. 

Or maybe they’ll teach you how to become a better manager.

But what they often won’t show you is how to develop the executive skills you’ll need to reach that next level in your career.

THAT is why you can’t wait around for your organization to support your professional development.

If you want to make it to the C-Suite eventually, you need to take matters into your own hands.

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’ll share exactly how your organization may be holding you back from the next promotion you deserve, AND how to create an effective professional development plan that will help you land any role you want.

What You'll Learn:

  • The three reasons why your organization isn’t supporting your professional development
  • The problem with high-potential development programs when it comes to advancing your career
  • The three key elements that every promotion plan must have
  • How to stop feeling frustrated and take action instead
  • How to approach obstacles in your organization with a problem-solving mindset (no more giving up!)
