How Hidden High Potentials Get StuckIf you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make someone who should be working for you your boss!
- Aren't recognized for the amount of work that they are actually doing?
- Care passionately about work and find that this gets them into trouble?
- Overachieve in their current jobs, outperforming everyone else?
- Used to be an overachiever and now can't seem to succeed?
- Keep getting the bewildering "you need an attitude adjustment" talks from their bosses?
You're playing by the wrong rules!
Career rules and ladders are written for people who fit the normal mold. They work, as long as you fit the mold, too. If you're different, they actually work against you. You may be a Hidden High Potential stuck by no fault of your own!
I call them Hidden High Potentials because they have the capacity to achieve greater things yet are unseen by those in power. They are getting stuck because they have followed rules, good for the vast majority of workers, but that don't work for them.
Learn how this happens to Hidden High Potentials and how you can get "unstuck" and on with your life!
There's no fluff in what you do. With other people, there's always a lot of fluff. With you, there isn't any.
— Mary McQueen, winner on CBC's Dragons' Den, on an earlier webinar
What You Will LearnIn the "Law of the Real Boss" webinar, I'll provide you with an overview of:
- Why having too much horsepower for a job can hurt your career
- How a job can turn against you, as if overnight
- Secrets to finding work that fits, now and in the future
- How you can get stuck in a job that is too small
- Ways to get out of being stuck and into a job you love!
These Secret Rules for hidden high potentials are not mystical or magical, but it seems that way because they totally reframe how you see your experiences and future.
Who Should AttendI created this webinar for people who have hit a wall in their career progress. They do good work but it's not recognized. They feel stuck. Most of these are in their thirties or forties and work in fields that are information- and knowledge-centric.
