Unlabeled Leadership

022: Lisa Wicker Meets You Where You Are

Feb. 23, 2021

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

In Episode 22, Lisa Wicker shares two of her guiding principles. In a story, Lisa describes how she connected with and championed a difficult employee. Also, she advises us to think critically about why we would want to enter and advance in management.

00:14 Prologue: Standing on the Shoulders of Mentors and Guides

From working for an automotive foundry to becoming the Chief Executive Officer of Career Mastered and publisher of Career Mastered Magazine, Lisa has mentored, lead, and even cheered for the people in her life. Of all the people I know, Lisa illuminates what empowering women means. Her hard work in celebrating women publicly, providing networking events, and developing girls and women has opened opportunities for women to flourish professionally.

01:26 Part 1: Showing Respect for Who You Are

New managers who rely on authority and trying to control their situation and others hurt their ability to lead. Lisa shares two of her guiding principles that make a difference in how she leads.

11:05 Part 2: Why Do You Care?

When someone starts at a new company, employees already have made assumptions about who you are and what to expect from you. Mostly unconscious, these assumptions are not based on the new employee’s personality but come from job typecasts (to name one source). Lisa illustrates how to overcome role typecasting.

18:58 Part 3: Why Do You Want a Promotion?

Lisa challenges us to critically think about why we would want to change careers and shift to a managerial role.
