    Ep #222: Unlock Your Executive Presence By Re-writing Your Leadership Story

    I've discovered the secret to being seen as an executive leader doesn't lie in a sharp suit or a firm handshake—it's in the power of my storytelling and the energy I bring to every interaction. In this week’s episode, I delve into how storytelling is at the heart of executive presence. I share insights on how to project leadership qualities that go beyond the physical, how to harness the power of energetic storytelling to define your executive aura, how to communicate with confidence and vision (not just demonstrating expertise), and more. You don’t gain power and influence by asking for recognition; it happens through confidently claiming your space at the leadership table. By moving beyond trying to prove yourself and instead narrating your experience as resourced, composed, and ready for that next step. It’s time to redefine our leadership journeys and learn to turn our stories into our legacy. Let’s go.

    Ep #221: How to Use Leadership Storytelling to Be Seen as an Executive Leader

    The fastest way to be recognized as an executive leader is to start communicating like one. That’s why executive communication isn’t just a leadership skill… It’s actually the entire foundation for every single other leadership skill you’ll need to master as you advance to the executive suite. And the easiest way to start showing off your executive communication skills TODAY is to start telling better stories. Better stories to your boss, to the executive team, and better stories to yourself. In this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m walking you through my unique leadership storytelling process so you can be recognized as the brilliant executive you are, land the roles you truly want, and be highly valued (and paid) for the impact you have at your organization.

    My New Definition of Selfishness and How to Use It to Get Promoted

    My New Definition of Selfishness and How to Use It to Get Promoted

    Ep #220: My New Definition of Selfishness and How to Use It to Get Promoted

    The women inside my programs are incredibly empathetic, compassionate leaders who are lifting others up and making a huge impact at their organizations. But in order to do that, they first had to become incredibly selfish. And I’m not talking about the run-of-the-mill selfishness that leads to so many a-holes being in executive leadership. I’m talking about the kind of selfishness that will allow you to do things like: Leave work every day at 4pm to pick up your kids; go on a 5-week sabbatical and still get promoted when you return; and bring more empathy, diversity, inclusion and compassion to the leadership table and completely change how business is run in the process. This is my new definition of selfishness. And on this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to show you how you can use it to strive for greatness in your own way, on your own terms, and while carving your own path to the executive suite.

    The Problem with Corporate VIPs and How to Become an MVP Instead

    The Problem with Corporate VIPs and How to Become an MVP Instead

    Ep #219: The Problem with Corporate VIPs and How to Become an MVP Instead

    Are you on the path to becoming an MVP or a VIP at your organization? The difference may seem small, but focusing on the wrong path can create huge problems in your career. VIPs are the high-level leaders you may be looking up to at your organization right now. They have power and influence and they’re often respected and even revered. But here’s the problem: As you advance to higher levels of leadership...you may come to realize that you don’t actually like them. And when this happens – when you realize many of the VIPs you admired are actually total a-holes who don’t stand for anything as a leader – this can be incredibly demotivating for you and your career. But in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to help you bypass this problem completely by showing you another path. I’ll show you how focusing on being an MVP – NOT a VIP – will help you achieve everything you admire about VIPs (the title, pay, recognition, and voice) while also stepping into your authentic power and having a major impact as a leader.

    Ep #218: How Working Less Will Help You Get Promoted More

    You know that person at work who has a seat at the table, gets paid well, has lots and lots of influence, and continues to get promotion after promotion…but they also seem to put in less hours, deliver less projects, and maybe even care less about the organization than you do? You may be annoyed with this person, but I actually want you to follow their lead. At the executive level, you’re not getting paid by how many hours your butt is in your seat. You’re getting paid for your ideas, your visionary leadership, your ability to make hard decisions, your ability to problem solve at a higher level and more. And the best way to have the time and mental bandwidth to do all of the above and more is to start doing less at work. So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership, I’m going to walk you through the advanced executive skills I have been teaching my clients so they can work less while being rewarded more than ever before.
