Ep #60: Becoming the Author of Your Career (and Life) with Brig Johnson

What if one of the fastest ways to become unstoppable at work was to really and truly OWN your career?

I mean owning the choices you make.

Owning how you are showing up at work.

And owning the value you’re bringing to your organization (and beyond).

But what does that actually look like in action, and how can you do it?

That’s exactly what Brig Johnson and I dive into on this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer.

Here’s what you should know about Brig:

She’s a dear friend and colleague, an absolute force to be reckoned with, and a mindset coach for high achieving Black women who has had the honor of being dubbed the “Beyonce of life coaching.”

In this episode, we dig into the power of being the author of your career and life, why you need to be showing up in the corporate world as your authentic self, and how to build your career from a place of sufficiency.

We also dig into Brig’s perspectives on driving more diversity in the upper echelons of leadership, being a champion for other women, and more.

What You'll Learn:

  • Brig’s top success secrets for living your dream life
  • What ‘owning it’ really means when it comes to your career
  • What thought work is (and why you need to be doing it everyday)
  • What the approval treadmill is and how it’s impacting your career
  • Why women and minorities are conditioned to prove their worth (and how to fix it)
