Ep #85: Becoming a Corporate Badass Part 3: Executive Discernment

Traditionally, women have been taught that there is one (and only one) way to advance to senior-level leadership positions:

Think, communicate, and behave like male executive leaders.

Nope! 🙅‍♀️

Here’s what I want YOU to do instead:

Practice executive discernment.

Executive discernment means leaning into the political climate at your organization and finding a way to make it work for you.

Because when you work within the system to advance your career…you can tap into the influence you need to make a bigger impact and create meaningful change – all from your spot at the executive leadership table.

And that, my friend, is what being a corporate badass is all about.

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’ll show you how tapping into your executive discernment will make you unstoppable at your organization (and beyond).

This is the last episode in a three-part series I’m calling Becoming a Corporate Badass.

In each of these three episodes, I reveal a different set of skills you need to master to become an even bigger corporate badass than you already are.

I’m offering a free live webinar on “Why You’re Not Getting Promoted and the Blueprint to Fix It” If you want to develop the skills I teach you on my podcast so that you can finally get the recognition you deserve, sign up at stacymayer.com/getpromoted and learn how.  There are limited spots, so don’t hesitate to sign up.
