Ep #94: Why the ‘Great Resignation’ Is the PERFECT Time For You to Get Out of the Weeds

The Great Resignation is here – and it probably means one BIG thing for you:

You’re more in the weeds than ever before.

That’s because:

👉 Half your direct reports are already out the door

👉 Members of the leadership team are moving on to opportunities elsewhere

👉 And YOU feel like you’re the one who has to hold everything together

And I know all this because I am coaching the corporate women leaders I work with through this exact same dilemma, too.

And if you feel a sense of dread when I tell you that now is the time to get out of the weeds…trust me, I get it.

But, it’s true.

Because if you want to release the overwhelm you are feeling right now (AND make major progress in your career at the same time) you need to do something different.

And the best way to do that is to pull yourself out of the weeds, once and for all.

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I am going to show you how to do it AND how making this shift will set you up beautifully for the next promotion – and the one after that, and the one after that – all the way to the C-Suite.

If you listen to this episode and think to yourself “I want to think and act like a senior executive now”, then I am here to help. Because you are ready for that next level. Get your next promotion faster and easier than you’ve even imagined by joining at ExecutiveAheadOfTime.com
