Art for episode 67: Want to advance your career? Stop focusing on the WRONG personBuilding a relationship with a good boss can help you make major progress in your career.

But a bad boss?

Well…not so much.

The reality is, you may be focusing all your time and energy on a boss that is never going to help you get ahead.

Maybe they’re utterly lost in the weeds and dragging YOU in there with them.

Or maybe they’re sucking up all your time with endless meetings and check-ins.

Regardless of the scenario, the result is usually the same:

You work your butt off, but never get the recognition you deserve.

I’ve dedicated this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer to showing YOU how to identify if you’re focusing all your time and attention on the wrong person AND what to do instead.

What You'll Learn:

  • What focusing on the wrong person looks like in action
  • What to do when you realize you’re focusing on the wrong person
  • Two ways to handle a bad boss by thinking like a strategic senior executive leader
  • Why being in reaction mode stops you from thinking proactively
  • Why you need to set boundaries with your boss today (and exactly how to do it)
