Ep #74: Executive Relationships Part 3: Building Your Personal Board of Directors

Episode art for episode #74: Executive Relationships Part 3: Building Your Personal Board of DirectorsNo, advocating for a promotion does not mean that you do not deserve it.

I see so many corporate women leaders with this mindset, and they’re playing small as a result.

They think that if they need to ask for a promotion, they must not be ready for it in the first place.

But that’s not how it works.

No one is going to tap you on the shoulder when they think you’re ready for that next level.

And if that is what you’re waiting for, you’re:

1. Not going to get promoted, and…

2. …you’re going to be frustrated when you see other people getting promoted instead.

Now, I’ve talked to countless C-Suite leaders about what it took to get to where they are now…

…and guess what?

Exactly zero of them said they got to where they are by waiting around to be plucked out.

Instead, all of them credit their success to their RELATIONSHIPS.

Their mentors, sponsors, peers, and coaches.

So on this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I dive into how to build a personal board of directors who will help you land your next promotion.

This episode is Part 3 of a 3-part podcast series I am doing entitled: Executive Relationships. 

Each episode of Executive Relationships will dive into an aspect of how to build and leverage the kind of relationships that will help you advance your career, have a greater impact, and enjoy a stronger voice at the leadership table.

What You'll Learn:

  • How to be purposively selected for a promotion
  • How leveraging relationships will help you have a better work/life balance
  • The difference between a mentor and a sponsor
  • Exactly who you want on your personal board of directors
  • A really practical strategy for staying in touch and top of mind with your network
