EP.35 Getting Promoted (…EXPLAINED)⎜#MakerZone

October 13, 2017

Getting promoted has nothing to do with doing a good job. You have to play strategically - be in the right role, do new things, and position fighters for your cause. Today's Episode is a short user-guide for motivated solid-performing employees who are seeking promotion but don't know quite how to get started. I have been on both sides of this process in the corporate world as a manager for over 20 years and was part of the inside workings of the promotion committees for several major institutions. Today's lessons are taken from those trenches of experience to fill the gaps between reading the HR intranet guidance - and getting your promotion letter next February.
