Do you ever feel invisible in your organization? Despite all of the positive work you do to help your company move the needle toward achieving its goals and the impact you are making on your company’s strategic direction – perhaps you’re not achieving your personal, professional goals and ambitions. Perhaps you’re getting overlooked for promotions in positions you feel you’re highly qualified for, have the skills necessary to succeed, and can really help you shine as a fierce leader.
On today’s episode, I discuss the three fallacies that hold many fierce feminine leaders back from advancing their careers and getting promoted to powerful positions in their organizations. I explain why promotions aren’t always based on your abilities, skills, and qualifications and what you can do to stand out. I also explain the importance of owning your accomplishments instead of seeking validation, how to effectively and strategically communicate your accomplishments to those in a position of power, and why you – fierce one – need to take control over your professional development, career advancement, and career trajectory.
“Wanting recognition – desiring it – does not mean you are a bad person. It means you are a practical person.” – Eleanor Beaton
