Do they know you want that promotion?

Uncategorized Sep 27, 2023

Quick question…

Does your firm know you want that promotion? 

Or are you keeping silent about your ambitions for the time being? 

Perhaps because: 

  • You worry you don’t have what it takes. 
  • You assume your hard work will speak for itself.  
  • You don’t want to be presumptuous by bringing it up before they do.
  • You’re waiting for the ‘official process’. 


I get it, but here’s the problem…

You’re more likely to get the promotion, if you tell them you want it. 

And my advice is – the sooner the better. 

  • It gives you time to ask for and implement feedback that will help you succeed. 
  • It means they’ll start thinking of you in that new context, which makes it more likely that you’ll get opportunities or introductions that will help you succeed. 

Look, I totally understand the fear of failure or rejection. 

But don’t fail ahead of time by not giving yourself the best chance to succeed. 

Also be careful of assuming that the ‘rules’ that got you this far, will take you any further. 

Doing a great job in your current role, doesn’t mean automatic promotion to the next. 

Tell them you want it. Ask for their advice and feedback.  

Get started on making it happen!
