When you are ready to move to the next level and it isn't happening. Mary Lee has a unique perspective as a 19-year corporate CEO, running organizations worth up to $26 million and a 10-year executive coach, certified by the International Coach Federation. She's seen everything from bureaucracy to personal agendas to posturing to the treadmill to nowhere. She is an expert at helping busy executive leaders convert their blind spot to get promoted, connected and effective before it’s too late.
You have been successful in school, business, and have a great family yet you thought you’d be further ahead by now and it just isn’t happening.
• You feel ineffective where it counts, tired, a lack of executive presence, low emotional intelligence or critical thinking skills, judged by age bias - other's think you're too young or too old. The anxiety is exhausting.
• You've been passed over for promotion. You've updated the resume, networked, read the right books yet nothing is changing.
• You are unable to self-regulate an emotion or behavior. You've been stereotyped and it's holding you back.
• You are mired down in corporate cynicism, personal agendas and bureaucracy. You feel as if all you do is put out fires.
• You are disconnected from your team. You wish they'd just do their job.
• You worry that not only might you drop down a notch on the career ladder, you might just get passed up or fall off all together and lose respect, confidence, and income.
Within the next 15 years, nearly 15% of the global workforce may need to switch jobs, according to the McKinsey Global Institute. By 2030, 75 million to 375 million workers will change occupation categories; another 400 to 800 million could be displaced by automation and need new jobs entirely. Workers may not have the necessary skills to transition into these roles. As highly repeatable tasks become increasingly automated, soft skills and emotional intelligence — critical thinking, communication, and collaboration — are even more essential. Request a call to discuss your goals.
You most certainly can have a rewarding career in a fulfilling field with a team who admires you while also being happy, enjoying a simplified life and good relationships with the people who matter.
Move from the heaviness of indecision to the freedom of:
• Executive presence and career effectiveness in purposeful work.
• Respect when you speak, offer an opinion or negotiate.
• Self-regulated negative energy in real time so you don't say or do somethng you regret.
• Confidence, connection, candor and calm.
• A promotion or new career opportunity where people compete to work with you.
• Better mindful relationships in life and work.
• More happiness, sleep, wellness and fun.
At a certain level in leadership everyone is smart, experienced and highly capable; those traits are no longer differentiators. Unfortunately, at this level there are less and less supports for leaders. Doubt shatters progress. More hours are not the answer. That's where I can help.
