Ep #47 Not Perceived as an Executive Leader at Work? Here’s How to Change That

When it comes to your performance at work, does your boss’s perception of you not seem to match reality?

Maybe you’ve gotten some feedback that seemed…off.

Or perhaps they simply aren’t seeing your potential as a senior executive leader.

I get it. It’s frustrating.

But when it comes to climbing the corporate ladder, you need to understand this:

You can create a new reality.

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I reveal four practical strategies you can use to shift the perception of you in the eyes of your boss, your CEO, your team, and your peers.

What You'll Learn:

  • How to manage your emotions after receiving negative feedback (so you can skip the stress and take action instead)
  • Why you need to adopt the mindset that how your boss perceives you is the truth
  • Actionable, step-by-step examples of how you can shift perception and create a new reality for yourself at work
