This program is the best thing I've done for my career in 10 years. After being stuck in my role for years, I successfully influenced to get a promotion within 4 months.
I didn't get a Director position 5 months ago because I was told I was not strategic enough. Then I started this program and followed your advice. Today, my Manager started our meeting saying how proud she is that I've been showing up as a Strategic Leader with Executive Presence, and that she already sent a note to the new head of the department saying that my promotion needs to happen NOW, even if its off-cycle.
I was pigeon-holed in my role for 10 years, and within only one month, I changed the perception my boss and boss's boss had of me. I've now expanded my role, am more fulfilled, and am helping to shape the way our company transforms for the future. Dr. Sharon Melnick is phenomenal and I highly recommend this program.
Now I think strategically, I choose the projects I want, AND my leadership supports me. Dr. Sharon Melnick is a Godsend. I made more progress in my self development and career progression in these few months than I had in years.
This program is awesome. Senior leaders tell me they see me showing up differently and now I am leading high visibility projects. It's totally worth the investment.
After I was ready to leave (my company) out of frustration. I have more impact than I even imagined. Leaders in the organization I could never reach are asking ME for my ideas. It is mind-boggling the way male colleagues and senior leaders just switched their mindset to now support me. I am leading initiatives. I have to do much less to be recognized for much more for what I deliver.
I got a role at a new company I'm excited about, and the salary is $20,000 more than what I was making! Now I'm at peace, calm, happy, and really confident about being able to make a positive transition. I've come to value and appreciate the things I do that I never gave myself much credit for - these are actual superpowers that set me apart from other people. I'm "owning it" and feeling powerful - not selling myself short or, thinking small. I really appreciate everything that I've learned and the support is going to be life changing for me. I'm very grateful.
I was always creating more work for myself even though I already felt overwhelmed. Now I have time to think critically, to ask questions, and build a better business strategy. I do it without spinning I feel more organized and prepared. I am stepping into a leadership role on the research team. Now the sky is the limit for me!
I hadn't felt comfortable or safe speaking up or sharing my opinions. I use the "mantra" you gave us to step out of my comfort zone. Now I speak up more with senior leadership and take risks. And it has paid off for me! I got a role at a smaller company, with a lot more visibility. It was a step up to Director, with a salary increase!
Using the roadmap enabled me to achieve my long term career goal much faster – I was offered a senior leader role in the organization. This was more than I thought possible and it was easier than anticipated.”
I got a next level role and a raise, and now I am leading the function. I never could have done it without the guidance in this program.
You can apply the tools Dr. Melnick provides right away. In an influencing situation that was crucial to my career, I had been getting a "No... I used the tools, and right away, I got a "yes!" Now I am moving the important work forward, and my manager approached ME about a promotion!”
