Top 4 Mistakes that may Cost you a Promotion! According to the author of The People Manager’s Tool Kit there are four main mistakes we are making that could be causing us to be passed over for a promotion.
1. FOCUSING ON THE NEGATIVES
You were hired to help make life easier for your boss and your team. Constantly talking about the road blocks and the obstacles in your way it means you're not looking at solutions,
2. UNDERESTIMATING THE PERFORMANCE OF COLLABORATION
Staying in your own bubble and not look into the impact you have on others allows them to easily miss the contribution you give to the business.
3. NOT MANAGING YOUR ENERGY
Working too hard and not finding a work-life balance causes you to become drained and tired. In the end you become less of a unique contributor.
4. NOT SPEAKING UP
Sitting quietly and keeping your opinions, ideas and observations, to yourself, gives no benefit to the company or your team members.
