Have you been eyeing that corner office or a leadership role, and you’re wondering, “How do I get promoted?” I hear this question a lot from my clients, and let me tell you, it’s about more than just waiting around for your boss to notice you’re fantastic. (Spoiler alert: you ARE fantastic, but we’ll dive into that shortly).

The Pitfalls of the ‘Wait-and-See’ Approach

A shocking number of the women I coach think that hard work alone will get them to the next rung on the career ladder. I hate to break it to you, but that’s a game of chance. And luck. Yes, putting your head down and hustling might work. But as you climb higher, the competition becomes more fierce, and the chances of being promoted based on hard work alone slim down.

Your Goals Deserve a Blueprint, Not Just Hope

Here’s the reality: if you have a goal, whether it’s running a marathon or nabbing that promotion, you need a plan. You need to identify your blind spots, create an actionable strategy, and integrate feedback loops for continuous improvement. Promotions are no different.

Taking Ownership of Your Career Path

  • Know Your Arena: Understand the context of your work environment. Is it performance-driven or does networking hold more sway?
  • Identify Key Decision-Makers: Who are the people in your organization whose opinion really counts when it comes to promotions?
  • Demonstrate Value: Knowing what’s important in your organization enables you to focus on activities that showcase your worth.
  • Formulate a Plan: Create actionable steps to reach your goal and don’t forget to establish metrics to measure your progress.


Don’t Leave Your Career to Chance

Relying on hope is like expecting someone to stumble across you in a crowded room and realize how amazing you are. The reality is, even if you are amazing, you’re sharing that room with many others who are also fighting for the spotlight.

Taking control of your career is empowering. It’s about acknowledging that you have what it takes and then putting in the effort to show it, in the most strategic way possible. If you’re done with leaving your promotion to chance, if you’re ready to steer your own ship, let’s chat.
