CONTINUATION: Making Your Life Count with Dr Humphrey Mutiti

EVERY day and in all facets of the industry, multiple people are stimulated to pursue promotion.

People seek promotion to attain more, to improve their living standards, and to be financially “better off” than their current circumstances. This is because people have a deeper appetite to succeed.

Hence, to effectively advance your career within your company, you will need to have what I call exceptional work execution and catch your supervisors’ or employer’s attention.

While execution, experience, and skills are common requirements for a job promotion in many workplaces, you can take extra measures to become a chief candidate for your desired position. In this article, I will continue discussing how you can position yourself for a promotion.

I, hence, recommend the following pointers one may employ

10.Identify and solve problems.
Every business has inefficiencies and problems. You can distinguish yourself as an outstanding employee or show your leadership capability by taking the initiative to solve them.

Business is all about solving people’s problems – at a profit. For illustration, Facebook made searching for friends and knowing their minds easy. Google made search better. Amazon simplified online buying and selling. Netflix solved on-demand streaming media. Uber is trying to make on-demand car service better. What can you make smarter or better?

Look around the office for things that are obstructing productivity, generating excessive costs, sabotaging workplace safety or thwarting the company from achieving its goals.

Then, create a plan to improve those areas. Companies hold self-starters in high regard. If you decide to take the initiative in areas where your company may be weak, you may have an advantage over other candidates for a promotion.

11. Always, keep your mind clear and focused.
Staying calm and positive under pressure is one of the most essential dispositions of a good leader. By keeping your mind clear and focused at all times, you can deliver consistent results and minimize your chances of making mistakes.

You will also help your team members be positive, resulting in a more facilitative work atmosphere for everyone. John Maxwell once asserted, “People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude.”

  1. Maintain a strong work ethic.
    In the end, work performance is the most significant factor in employee promotion. It is not a blood, tribal connection, and whom you know that counts, it is the work performance.

This is the truth though in a corrupt country it is about whom you know and blood. Hence, we have unqualified people in offices whose performance is below par. This corrupts the whole system. Can you produce results? Can you add value to this company?

Thus, you need to continually demonstrate a solid work ethic and strive to become the hardest-working person in every situation. Your work performance should show that you have already mastered your current role and are ready to take on a more challenging position in the company.

Saji Ljiyemi nails it this way, “You were hired because you met expectations, you will be promoted if you can exceed them.”

Be readied to do everything indispensable to stand out from your collaborators and impress your employer by yielding results, such as conducting daily work duties with excellence or interacting with clients.

Punctuality is essential for work, meetings, and company events, and in meeting all your deadlines.

Govern your current responsibilities competently to prove your value to the company.

  1. Motivate yourself constantly.
    Staff promotion does not always occur repeatedly; for some people, it may take several years to achieve this goal. You need to be continuously energized to maintain the fundamental effort to stay in the right direction toward promotion.

Whenever you are in doubt, ask yourself why you want to be promoted. Remembering the reasons you want a promotion can propel you to work harder toward your goal. You will need to remind yourself that dreams do not work unless you do.

Use your ambition. Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you. Margret Thatcher once said, “You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.” Create a list of reasons why a promotion would benefit your career, including:

Proving to yourself that you are capable of greater things. Having a plan for your family in which attaining a promotion is an essential milestone.

Contributing more toward your company’s mission. When you know precisely why you are aspiring for a promotion, you may find it easier to work hard. Keep yourself stimulated.

    named. Kudos!

    what if you added something to possibly get people’s attention? I mean HOW TO GET A PROMOTION AT WORK (Season 3) – Kalemba News
    is kinda vanilla. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article titles to grab people to open the
    links. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.
