Copy of podcast episode images (9)

It's pretty common to feel like the grass is always greener on the other side.  It fuels you to want more, to want a higher position or to make a bigger impact at work.  But the inevitable problem with this approach is that you forget about what is actually within your control now.

In today's episode, I'll show you exactly how you can start acting like the executive leader now. How this works to build trust with leadership so that they feel confident recommending you for promotion. And how you will build trust in yourself that you can do the job.

Whether you are already an executive or it's still a long term goal, learning to act like the executive now will make you take bolder risks, have more strategic conversations and lead to stronger relationships.  And those relationships will ultimately guide you to your next assignment.

Listen this week as I give you 3 simple steps that you can take action on right away so that you not only act like the executive leader, you become one!

What You'll Learn:

  • Why you think you need to wait until you become an executive to begin acting like one.
  • How waiting not only doesn't get you the promotion but it also sets you up for stress.
  • Why this applies to you even if you already have the title but aren't able to make the impact you want to make.
  • Why acting like the executive now brings immediate satisfaction and happiness into your life.
  • How I am still learning and applying these steps in my career.
