How do you get the promotion you want?

Career Advice: Increase your chances of promotion by expanding your management experience past your technical expertise.

One way to magnify your management skills inside your workplace is OUTSIDE of the office.

Last year I (Mika) searched for examples of exceptionalism (little or lesser-known facts). I interviewed lots of women for the calendar: above are some of the leaders chosen. Did you know that Prince George County nominated its First Female Fire Chief?

Only 7% of firefighters across the country are women (and a portion of that number are volunteers versus career firefighters).

Above is a snapshot/preview of my 2021 coaching calendar (month of Nov). It outlines examples of how these women have worked outside of the field to gain experience & leadership skills that can assist inside the workplace.
