Ep #95: How to Escape the Subject Matter Expert Prison

You’ve heard of the glass ceiling…

But have you heard of the Subject Matter Expert Prison?

This is a phrase I’ve coined for the invisible trap around you that’s stopping you from stepping into your next level of leadership.

And even if you do manage to smash the glass ceiling and get promoted to the C-Suite without escaping the Subject Matter Expert Prison, you will:

👉 Still be stuck in the weeds.

👉 Still struggle to have your voice heard.

👉 And still feel invisible around the leadership table.

This is not the kind of executive I want YOU to be.

That’s why I’m dedicating this episode of Maximize Your Career to helping you escape this prison by taking control of your next promotion.

In this episode, I’ll show how to find the key, unlock the door, and step into a whole new level of leadership.

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
