89. Julie Winkle Giulioni: Why 'Promotions are so Yesterday'
Show Notes

My guest today is in Pasadena, California and her name is Julie Winkle Giulioni. Julie is the author of ‘Promotions Are So Yesterday: Redefine Career Development, Help Employees Thrive’ and the co-author of the international bestseller, ‘Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go’. Julie is also named by Inc. Magazine as a Top 100 Leadership Speaker and in this conversation, we talk about Julie’s career and how every single person alive today can thrive in their own career.

We talk in detail about Julie's own career, her favourite roles, and what made her 'trade in the illusion of security for the illusion of freedom' and venture out on her own.

The underlying theme of her latest book 'Promotions are so yesterday' is so key in 2022 and beyond. We talk about how the idea for this book came about, and the answer is quite personal.

We also talk about two particular concepts from her book that I think the listener will find even more  valuable:

a) “Pretirement: the period leading up to retirement and a time for reciprocal contribution”.  (And spoiler alert: it’s not related to age).

b) "It’s called work for a reason. If it was enjoyable, they’d call it fun.” Sheesh, we’ve all heard that. Julie shares with us how we can bring contentment, and dare we say, joy, in our work.

This is such a valuable and fun conversation, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
