Ep #68: Being Unapologetically Ambitious with Shellye Archambeau

Every once in a while I hear someone speak about leadership and immediately think to myself:

This person gets it.”

One of these people is Shellye Archambeau.

Shellye is an absolute powerhouse when it comes to leadership. She is the former CEO of MetricStream and currently sits on the boards of Nordstrom, Verizon, Roper Technologies, and Okta AND advises the Royal Bank of Canada, Capital Markets Group, and Forbes Ignite. 

She has cracked the code on what it takes to get to that next level of leadership, and she has recently poured everything she’s learned into a book on the subject called Unapologetically Ambitious.

On this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, Shellye joins me to explain exactly what unapologetic ambition is AND how YOU can unlock new growth in your career (and life) by putting it into practice.

This conversation is absolutely jam packed with both super inspiring AND super practical advice. This is a must listen!

What You'll Learn:

  • The three questions Shellye always asks herself that help her set and achieve her goals
  • How to propel yourself to the top faster by finding the “current of power” in your organization
  • The #1 mistake most mentees make
  • How to build a network of supporters by asking the right questions
  • How women and male minority leaders can raise issues in a way that actually moves things forward
