Here’s what it actually takes to get promoted into higher-level executive positions

Hey Corporate Badass, I see you.

You have worked hard to get to where you are in your career right now. You're at the top of your game.  And you’re proud of it (as you should be).

You’ve got excellent leadership skills, it’s obvious to anyone who is on your team.  They adore you.

But ask your manager or your boss’s boss?  Well, they keep telling you that you’re not quite ready for that next-level promotion.  That you need to “keep doing what you’re doing”.  Or maybe you’ve been promoted but you still aren’t being included in the executive level conversations.

And you’re sick of it.  You did not work so hard to get where you are today only to be dismissed by others who (if we’re really honest) are less qualified than you.

Am I right?


If your title and pay reflected your true leadership abilities, you’d be running the c-suite by now.

So while you KNOW you’re ready for a seat at the table, for now you just feel stuck and frustrated, putting out fires and solving other people’s problems.

What you really wanna be doing is engaging in the high-level strategic thinking

You want to be an influential decision maker in the organization.

You want to be included.

And frankly, you want to have a VOICE at the table (not just a seat).

Here’s the thing…

It’s not that leadership doesn't care about you, love you or think you’re the greatest thing.

They just don’t see you as an executive leader (yet).

Putting out everyone else’s fires is keeping you from being seen as someone who can solve the BIGGER problems.

When you are stuck in the weeds, even if you are technically an executive leader, you still might not be seen as one.

And that’s not your fault.

The reason you’re getting caught up in the tactical things is because you’ve been given really bad advice

  • ‘Work harder’, and
  • ‘Just keep doing what you’re doing and your work will speak for itself’

But the truth is, if you ‘keep doing what you are doing’ you’ll be in the exact same place 3 years from now.

Because the people giving you this advice? They’re all men, right? Yet what works for men, doesn’t work for you…

Certain leaders can build trust with other leaders WITHOUT words coming out of their mouth. Simply because they look like them.

That’s why you’ll see less qualified leaders get promoted without much effort.

So as a woman , when you’re told ‘keep doing what you’re doing’, DON’T. That would be the worst thing for you to do.

It’s NOT an option for you ‘to wait and see’.

Because you won’t organically build trust in the same way as your male colleagues.

PLUS you’re not getting invited to the golf course, the after work drinks, the cycling club…

That’s why when opportunities come up, you’re not the first person they think of.

You have to create those opportunities for yourself.

But don’t worry, creating your OWN opportunities doesn’t need to feel difficult and confusing.

You start with becoming more like your OWN version of an executive leader.

There are skills you do better as a woman — empathy, compassion, emphasis on inclusion and equality — and you need to bring those with you as you get promoted vs tamper them down so you’re more like the rest of the room.

That’s why it’s not enough for me to just help you get promoted,  I’m committed to helping you bring your WHOLE self to the leadership table.

Hi, I’m Stacy

I’m an executive coach and promotion strategist — I help women strategize on what it’s going to take to get you into higher-level executive positions.

I worked for several years for a women’s leadership organization in Silicon Valley.

I noticed while we were empowering women to speak up and own their value, they still weren’t getting the titles and pay to match their abilities.

So when I started my own executive coaching business, I focused on what it would really take to get the title, higher salaries…but most importantly, to have that voice.

Within 6 months of starting my business, I coached three women to get promotions into the C-suite.

I knew I was onto something.

I wanted to make this repeatable and accessible to more and more women.

So I looked at what was working and created my step-by-step Executive Promotion Process, that has been helping me on my mission to double the number of women in the executive suite ever since.

The Leadership Table - logo draft

  • You’ll show leadership not only WHAT you’ve accomplished, but HOW you’ve accomplished it so it doesn’t feel like ‘bragging’.

  • How to effortlessly improve your communication with executives, teams, and clients with one doable shift in your language.

  • Mastery of difficult conversations without pissing people off or burning bridges.

“With Stacy's help, I have up-leveled myself as a leader by 3xing my vision, getting clear on my goals and aspirations, changing the way I speak with other leaders, making faster and better decisions, defining my leadership style, increasing my self-awareness and building trust both in myself and with other leaders.”

Andrea, Received a skip-level promotion to Vice President of Customer Success

Here’s what it actually takes to get the recognition and voice at the table you know you deserve

Get off the rollercoaster of feast-or-famine and waiting for performance reviews, and hoping for recognition…and  make advocating for yourself second-nature.

  1. Deliberately manage your career rather than waiting for performance review time to advocate for your promotion.
  2. Take the time to focus on your professional development year round.
  3. Build trust with the entire executive team, including your CEO.
  4. Pull yourself out of the details in every conversation with your boss.
  5. Believe that you are ready to lead at the executive level, so that when opportunities do come your way, you can say yes!

This simple, powerful process is at the heart of every step in my Executive Promotion Process.

My proven Executive Promotion Process covers everything you need to accelerate your Executive Presence and get the recognition you (already) deserve!


We’ll dive into my top strategies for getting out of the weeds and onto the path towards your next big promotion.  You will learn…

  • Why focusing on developing your management skills (rather than your executive leadership skills) is holding you back from advancing into a senior leadership position.

  • How to define your unique leadership style so you (and your executive team) see you more as an executive leader instead of a subject matter expert.

  • Ways to communicate your visionary leadership in your next 1:1 with your boss.

  • How to come up with badass ideas to share with your boss that demonstrate that you can think like a senior executive leader.

  • What the executive team actually wants to hear from you aka the difference between laying out all the details vs. sharing your vision for a project.

You aren't just applying the modules as a one-size fits all approach.  Weekly group breakthrough calls with me helps you apply everything in the modules to YOUR unique situation.

I help you find the language you can use — that’s MOST relevant for you and your situation — to confidently go into that 1:1 with your boss.

Plus, the truth is, you don’t know what you don’t know.   You don’t even need to have a question to get value from these calls.

As you listen to the other women in the group (live or on the recording) ask their questions, you’re going to realize questions you didn’t know you already had.

You’re going to hear them and apply them to yourself.

And because we’re all going through this at different stages, you’re going to create connections with women from all different organizations from all over the world.

All of this happens on our weekly breakthrough calls, and you get access to these calls for life.


“Stacy has a remarkable ability to understand where I am mentally in processing whatever current challenges I am facing in my career. She then comes in and causes a mental shift in the way I have been approaching the issue causing me to function at a higher level. She then shows me how this same mentality can be applied to more upcoming issues in the future. This is what makes Stacy one of the best career coaches. She is in it for you to win.”

Atiya, Received a promotion to Digital Consulting Manager

Your path to executive leadership starts with embodying my Executive Promotion Process

(regardless of your current title)

If you’re a new manager (or transitioning into management) — this process will work for you.

If you’re at the Director level, like the majority of the women in the program  — this process will work for you.

If you’re already at the  executive level  but still don’t have a voice — this process will work for you.

And The Leadership Table is a lifetime access program.

Which means the women inside are able to use this process at each level of their career.

They’ve applied my proven Executive Promotion Process…got promoted,

…re-visited the modules again,

…applied the principles the to their new level (and gotten promoted…AGAIN)


“I highly recommend Stacy’s coaching to anyone who wants help both pinpointing what they need to adjust and putting the changes into practice in a supportive, honest way. The only thing that disappoints me about this experience is that I didn’t do it years earlier.

Kristi, Received a promotion to Vice President Business Development

Changing the leadership table doesn’t happen when you’re relying on company sponsored coaching

Many company sponsored coaching and training programs are designed to make you a better manager (aka they're about helping the company get more of what it wants).

The Leadership Table teaches you how to apply your excellent management skills to your career.  

I care more about YOU than your organization.

I want you to be recognized for your ideas and not just the hours you put in at work.

I want you to have the title and pay that actually matches your abilities.

And I want you to not only have a seat at the table but to have a voice as well.

YOU could be my next Leadership Table success story.


“Stacy is able to hone in on the issues each of us are struggling with, and it is rewarding to see the progress in myself and others week-over-week.”

Once you join The Leadership Table,
you’ll see results within the first week

Because Everything I teach, you do on the job. You’re not adding time to your day.

You’re actually getting back time.

You will  apply what I teach in your NEXT 1:1 conversation with your boss.

You will learn to network and build trust with executives on YOUR schedule (no more after-hour parties at the bar).

You will start receiving the benefits (and cash) of being an executive leader NOW, not after you get a bigger team.

And building your career using my Executive Promotion Process allows YOU to get promoted on YOUR terms.

Don’t wait until ‘later’ when you can start experiencing these changes from TODAY.


“I joined the program during possibly the worst time of my professional life in terms of bandwidth, and I still got a huge amount out of it. The impact of this program is immediate.”

Executive leaders don’t have seasons.
They’re an executive ALL year round.

Maybe you WANT to join The Leadership Table, but you’re planning on saving it for ‘later’?

But I want you to know that the right time, right place doesn’t just happen to you. It is something you create.

This is a mantra you will hear me use a lot on our weekly group breakthrough calls and it’s true.

Now I am going to deliver some more tough love coaching.

When you become an executive leader, you will be an executive all year round.

You’ll always be…

  • Building relationships.
  • Challenging yourself to get out of the weeds and to think and communicate at a higher level.
  • Somebody who knows what’s next, and knows what’s two promotions after that, and you’re making decisions from that place.

And the way we do this using my Executive Promotion Process is not exhausting. It’s actually way less stressful than what you are doing right now.


You won’t be waiting for someone to offer you an opportunity.

You won’t be waiting until your company announces layoffs.

You won’t wait until you’re passed over for a promotion (again).

Or until your company has a hiring freeze.

You’ll stop saying ‘no’ when opportunities are handed to you just because you don’t ‘feel’ ready yet.

And you’ll stop trying to figure all of this out on your own.

When you get off the rollercoaster of waiting for your performance review to advocate for yourself, you BECOME in control of your career. And that control stays with you for the rest of your career.

The best time to join The Leadership Table was yesterday…the second best time is now.

If you know you’re going to join eventually, I encourage you to just say…yes…today!

You get to *decide* that you’re ready to make this shift now.

I cannot wait to see you on our next live breakthrough call!
