To get promoted get to know what you will be doing

Apart from working on part 1, part 2 and part 3, one has to get ready to be promoted to the next level. So the final part in this series is:

  1. Get to know what the next level demands

If the organization has a written job description of what the next level entails, can you demonstrate that level of performance in your current role?

You can also volunteer to do your leader's relatively simpler operational tasks that will help you in

  • learning what the role is

  • free up his/her time to concentrate on doing more productive things
If demonstrated well, these skills will show your Manager that you can do aspects of his/her role well and you will be better off in your chances of getting promoted than others who have only concentrated on doing their current job role.
