Ep #81: 5 Pieces of Career Advice You Should Avoid at All Costs

Are there certain tools, strategies, or mindsets you’ve been told you need to adopt in order to advance your career…but they just never sat right with you?

I’m going to let you in on a little secret 🤫 

It’s because….

…they don’t actually work.

(Especially for female corporate leaders like YOU.)

There are five pieces of career advice that I hear over and over (and over) again, but are completely wrong for my clients.

And when you do follow these pieces of “advice”, you’ll end up playing small or getting your career completely off track.

In today’s episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to share each of these five pieces of bad career advice so you can avoid them at all costs.

I’ll also break down exactly why this career advice is holding you back from landing a promotion and building a career (and life) you love, AND I’ll show you what to do instead.

What You'll Learn:

  • Why you don’t need to “speak up” more (and what to do instead)
  • The difference between being willing to sacrifice VS. being willing to create the career and life you want
  • Why you don’t need to uproot your family in order to climb the corporate ladder
  • Why you need to take strategic risks (not “big” ones)
  • The differences between what I teach and what traditional leadership programs offer
