Ep #53: Why It Feels So Scary to Get Exactly What You Want at Work

Here’s something I know about you:

You’re not one of those people.

You’re not someone who wants to get to the top of your organization at all costs because you just crave power.

That’s because you don’t want to have power over people, you want to have power with people.

You want to get to the top of your organization, but you want to do it your way.

And as you’re rising through the ranks, this conflict can start to feel downright confusing. You may even start to doubt yourself or sabotage your own success.

But before you take that as a sign that you’re not cut out for senior executive leadership (spoiler alert: you absolutely are) I want you to listen to this episode.

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer you will learn why challenging situations will come up for you as you step into your power as a leader, AND I’ll give you the tools and strategies you need to approach these challenges in your own way.

What You'll Learn:
