It sounds so simple as to be obvious, yet many business people act as if they will get promoted on their track record alone. Having a list of successful projects and initiatives you’ve handled IS important. But it’s not enough by itself.
The new position you desire requires an expanded skill set. You need to be able to demonstrate that you have the skills and knowledge to handle it. As you climb higher up your career ladder, soft skills like the ability to manage others, see new opportunities and creatively solve problems become more important. Helping you develop those soft skills is the focus of my book:
Up Your Impact: 52 Powerful Ideas to Get Noticed, Get Promoted & Become Indispensable at Work, is filled with ideas and strategies you can use to increase your success at work, build your influence and position yourself for advancement.
Between now and Friday, November 30th, Up Your Impact is available in Amazon.com’s Kindle store for free, here.
It’s my way of blessing you this Thanksgiving season!
