Ep #69: How to Get Promoted by NOT Focusing On Yourself

When it comes to landing your next promotion, it’s only natural that you’d be thinking about yourself.

You might be wondering why you got passed over for that promotion.

Or you might wonder how you’re going to get ahead when you don’t have a great relationship with your boss.

And focusing on ourselves like this doesn’t just feel a little icky…it feels heavy, right?

But I know YOU. I know that you don’t want to get ahead for purely selfish reasons.

You want to be in community with other leaders. You want to be part of the conversation. And you want to change the face of leadership.

And guess what?

Getting ahead for selfish reasons doesn’t work anyway.

So if you want to get ahead, you need to really tap into those other desires you have.

The desire to make a greater impact. The desire to have a voice at the table because you have brilliant ideas to offer your organization, your team, your community.

So in this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to show you how to set yourself up for a promotion by focusing on why your organization needs you in a higher level leadership position.
