Knobull Provides Support To Accelerate Career Success
Spend some time now learning how to communicate with different types of people. This skill goes hand-in-hand when learning how to succeed. You must already be doing an incredible job in your current position to show leadership that you are capable of handling a step up. But that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. Ask your boss how you can get better.
Develop strong relationships within your organization and encourage other colleagues to go to bat for you when it matters the most. Always treat everyone with kindness and respect.
Every organization cares about its bottom line. If you can bring in revenue (or save money), you'll be seen as a valuable part of the company. This will put you in a strong position to advocate based on your results — and justify the accompanying success.
Has someone else been promoted recently? Ask them how they did it. Did they take on additional responsibilities over time, go back to school? Ask if they have any feedback or advice for you. Having a mentor helps to speed growth and enhances success.
Bentley concluded, "Many people think that dominating every conversation is a leadership trait. Be intentional when you speak so that you become known for only contributing valuable input. Look for ways to streamline processes so you can be more efficient. Invest that freed-up time into developing your skillset or projects that deserve your extra attention."
