8 Things That Will Get You a Promotion




You work hard and do your job well. Yet somehow you manage to get passed over for promotion. You and I, everyone has gone through this. And nothing can be more discouraging.

Our manager feels we are not doing our job responsibly. But often happens that, we know our responsibilities to do and performing it with 100% efforts. But we are not getting expected results.

It's not always happens that efforts bring equal success. Wrong approach and tactics leads us to unsatisfactory results. So there is a need to improve the directions and the way we are doing our work. Hardwork alone never pays back. Sometimes you have to work smartly.

I have mentioned 8 ideas that can help you in getting promotion in your job.







1. Showcase Your Results

Have you ever wondered why some employees get their promotion regularly and how their boss takes their suggestions seriously? No doubt they must be good at their work. But also, they use their skills to showcase their efforts to people so that their manager can notice them which makes them stand out from the crowd.

  To go up the ladder, you do all the work at office, but if you're not able to showcase results to others, it's going to be difficult for people to recognize you and move you up.

You will need to speak up and show your knowledge in the meetings. And share suggestions whenever required. Send an email when you complete your task. Get recognized for the work you have done.




2. Believe In Yourself 





When you have any agenda or proposal for taking the company's business to the next level, you make a thorough plan considering the weaknesses, strengths and how to involve everybody to take the plan to the next level. All this won't workout if you don't have self belief.

Believing in yourself stepping stone for going ahead. It will help you to gain confidence in yourself and believe that, it is possible to make new things work and will give you a positive results. Even if it doesn't give you expected result, at least you can try to improve by thinking about alternate solutions.



 3. Be Positive

Always be positive and exude confidence. It will help you to communicate effectively with your colleagues, your clients. Effective communication bring clarity in what you want to convey to your colleagues, manager and client.This is the key to get yourself noticed in the office.



4. Be a Problem Solver


Do not complain. Be a problem-solver identify roadblocks and remove them and get things done.

People who always keep complaining about problem are never appreciated. People who counter with the problem and then work towards finding the solution are the people who get appreciated and promoted.



5. Be Self-driven

Before taking up any added responsibility from seniors, just think whether you will able to complete it in committed time. Sometimes we take up the responsibility since we cannot say no to our seniors and it bound to happen that in hurry we are not able to give up our 100% and as a result it gives bad impression.
Try and pick up more work according to the situation and the same time deliver with perfection. So that they recognize your hard work and trust you.
It is always better to think wisely before you accept any upcoming added responsibility.



6. Engage With Your Manager

If you want to gain recognition for your work, it's important to be open with your manager. In most of the cases a supportive manager want to see his team achieving their goal.
It's important to create a leader and a follower relation rather than just a boss and employee. Be open to discuss about your plan, career goals and how serious you are and the results you are going to achieve and how your efforts are going to benefit your company. Sometimes talking to manager without any bound can help you to achieve trust of your manager on you. They will understand that you're looking to grow.
Also, it's important to understand who's going to do your promotion and what are their expectations from you.



7. Build Relationship

 Company always gives preference to their clients. For them, it is through these clients that their business works. Always try to get engage with the client. Give them preference, build a good relationship with them. Let them know what amazing work that you are trying to do. Showcase things proactively the more people know about your great work, the better it is in terms of getting them to recognize your efforts. So this kind of an internal mandate that you are doing a great job has to be created and that has to be done by you. It's not going to happen automatically. So take it up as a mandate to create a great impression of yours on others.



8. Feedback From Manager


Take regular updates about yourself from your manager. It will help you to understand whether the tactics you are using to complete work are creating any chance for your promotion for this time. And if any improvement is required then you can do it on time.

Many employees make a mistake is, they take feedback from their managers on the day of appraisals. And usually they are shocked.
Asking for regular updates from your manager about your work progress will lead your manager to understand how much serious you are about work and it will give good remarks about yourself.



Conclusion

The environment is always challenging in workplace, specially when everyone tries to compete each other. But that doesn't mean you cannot do it. Its your dream. Achieve it with all the tactics mentioned above.

And always remember one thing, "power is not given. Power is taken." So go ahead and take your power.
