Repeat after me, fierce one:
“It is OK to want to be recognized for my work.”
Wanting recognition for the things you do — the impact you are having, the people you are mentoring, the important projects you are driving – does NOT mean you are a bad person. It means that you are a PRACTICAL person.
Being recognized for the work you do has highly practical outcomes. It means more income for your family and more financial peace of mind. It means a stronger voice at the boardroom table. It means access to the positions you’re highly qualified for, have the skills necessary to succeed, and can really help you shine as a fierce leader.
On this episode of Fierce Feminine Leadership, I identify three core fallacies (that HR or your boss are NOT going to tell you) that could be holding you back from getting promoted. I also discuss:
- How to effectively, constructively, and strategically communicate your accomplishments.
- Why promotions aren’t always based on your skills, abilities, or qualifications.
- The importance of maximizing status differences and its impact on getting promoted.
- The difference between how men and women “stand out” in their organizations.
- The importance of owning your accomplishments instead of seeking validation.
- And more.
