Negotiating your career and salary is about you taking control of your life. It’s not only the dollars; it’s you acknowledging your worth, valuing your contribution to your employer and reaffirming your career progression.
A plum new role has been announced and you put your hand up for it. After going through the process, you find your colleague has been appointed to the role. It wouldn’t be so bad if this wasn’t the third time you’ve tried to get a promotion. You’ve been actively seeking growth for some time. It hurts and stings. You can’t work out what habits those promotable employees have.
Let me let you in on the secret sauce on how to get a promotion!
The chances are your colleague who got the job actively seeks mentoring. This is not to be underestimated. Mentors bring a wealth of knowledge and know-how to the mentoring relationship. Be the one who actively seeks growth by having two or more mentors. Make sure to meet regularly and have specific questions you want answered in the conversation.
Get in touch with me or sign-up to my online programs. You need someone in your camp who understands what you are going through and can support you through the process. The coaching and the online program offer that.
Another habit of promotable employees is to have a strong and positive network. Make sure you connect with people who you can give to and vice-versa. It should always be a two-way relationship, trusting, open, honest and supportive.
