Why You're Not Getting A Promotion - Leila's House of Correction

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Why is it that some people get promoted while others, maybe you, sit on the sidelines and watch as bigger titles, more money and increased visibility will be passed out. Let's talk about that. Here are three reasons why some people move up, and others stay put. First. You may be working harder when you need to be working smarter. I’ll make this first one short and sweet. Burning the midnight oil fails to impress anyone. Most everyone is working hard and putting in long hours, including your manager. She’s not able to keep track of how much effort you’re putting in, and she probably doesn’t want to. What she does want is an employee with innovative, cost-cutting and highly productive ideas. Work smarter for her and she’ll reward you. Second. Are you concentrating on what you’re doing instead of how you’re doing it? When you begin your career, visible demonstration of your talents is crucial. It’s important to exemplify the core, hard skills you were hired for whether it’s graphic design, project management or programming. Getting to the next level, though, requires considering the behaviours you use. It’s now more about developing the soft skills. So, if you are already exceeding metrics set by your manager, like your sales quota, you now need to highlight that you’re accomplishing this through collaboration and strategic thinking. These indicate your increased level of ability, readiness and leadership. Third. Are you even asking for a promotion? Are you expressing your desire to move throughout the organization? Way too many employees assume that promotions are being handed down versus being asked for. Don’t assume that your manager is working hard to get you promoted because she’s not. She’s working hard for her own promotions and for the general wellbeing of her entire team. It’s not that she doesn’t like you or value your work. It’s simply an issue of time and priorities. So be clear and straightforward about what you want and how that will help the organization. Now, asking for promotion is one thing. Demonstrating how operating at a director level versus a manager level and how that will benefit the entire team and the company is another thing. Explain how elevating your role will positively impact your contribution. Now, get to it.
