How do Our Clients Earn 25%-35% Raises Without Throwing Their Coworkers Under the Bus

I just got off the phone with a potential client who wants to earn a 35% raise and get promoted from Manager to Director.

But she’s worried about politics.

She’s worried about what that would look like. She’s worried that in order to get that promotion, she’d have to throw some coworkers under the bus.


She’s in a very tricky environment at work. She loves her boss and has a great relationship with him. But…she has several coworkers who are not performing up to par.

They routinely miss deadlines, make avoidable mistakes, and generally do not take ownership of their roles on the team.

And this is making HER extremely frustrated! Because she takes ownership. She owns up to her mistakes and does everything she can to be the best manager possible.

But because her colleagues are under-performing, she doesn’t have the results to show that SHE’S winning as a leader.

She doesn’t have proof that she’s badass. All she has is the fact that she shows up every day committed. She works her butt off.

But no proof.

And this is bleeding over into other areas of her life. Because her brain is constantly filled with, “Why won’t they listen to me?” “ How do I clean up with mess at work?” And she’s losing sleep.

She can’t turn it off. And she tries to have a life outside of work (when she has the time), but even when she’s out with friends, she finds ways to steer the conversation towards her work woes.

And her friends are getting tired of it.

She knows this. She’s stuck. She wonders, “How am I supposed to get a promotion when I don’t have the results to prove my success as a leader and don’t have the ENERGY to deal with this sh*t anymore?!”

Does this sound and feel like your work life?

If it does, then here’s the bottom line:

If you don’t fix your work life soon, it’s never gonna get fixed. And you’re never gonna get that raise or promotion. Because your boss is never going to think that you deserve it.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

While most tech managers are struggling to “play politics,” a small handful of smart technical leaders are quietly earning 25–35% raises…without resorting to nasty political games.

And once they implement our systems, they’re able to consistently add measurable excellence at work EVERY day and help their teams and coworkers do the same.

Because they have powerful leadership strategies and implement them with passion, this lifts EVERYONE up.

There’s no need to throw anyone under the bus! Instead, they’re taking everyone along for a fulfilling ride towards repeated team successes.

And they’re getting RECOGNIZED for these successes in the form of promotions — for everyone who deserves them!

Do you want to find out how you can make this happen at work?

We’ll pull back the curtain and reveal the inside strategies that the top 1% of tech leaders know that you probably don’t. And we’ll talk about how to apply them in YOUR workplace & in YOUR career.

If you want our help implementing these strategies, we’ll talk about what that would look like.

If not, that’s cool too.
