Great article!

 

I know that we all want to move up in our roles and reach our potential as soon as possible...right?

 

Then my advice is: 

 

1.  Think not what your supervisor can do for you -- instead think about how you can contribute to your supervisor's success.

 

-Find out what your supervisor's priorities are in terms of their individual goals and department objectives

-Find out what your supervisor's communication preferences are

-Find out what your supervisor's expectations are beyond the job description

-Find out your supervisor's important meetings and deadlines

-Get to know your supervisor as a person and take interest

 

Now:  Ask yourself what can I do to anticipate information, reports, and support my supervisor will need.  What can I do to add maximum value to support what is important to my supervisor.

 

2.  Think not what your team and colleagues can do for you -- instead think about how you can contribute to your team's success.

 

-Find out what the team's shared goals are

-Find out what mission critical projects your teammates are working on

-Ask your supervisor if you can do some cross-training within your department

-Get to know your colleagues as people and take interest in them

 

Now:  Ask yourself what can I do to help my team succeed?  What can I do to support my colleagues' success?

 

---- I can go on and on; however, can you see where I am going with this?  Getting a promotion means that you are successfully adding value to your supervisor, your team, and the organization.  It means that you take the initiative to make improvements and focus on what can be done, instead of making excuses.

 

Be a positive role model for the company, and avoid ever talking poorly about the company or others. 

 

Follow these tips and they will certainly help in your efforts on getting promoted!

 

Make it a great day!
