November 11, 2022

You may not be able to control the source of your promotion-related anxiety, but you can control how you react to it. Seeking more information about your performance and the process your company uses to evaluate people is one way to reduce stress.📌 To evaluate if you’re ready for a promotion, understand how your organization perceives you, your skills, and performance. Gain feedback across five main areas of growth: self-awareness, external awareness, strategic thinking, executive presence, and thought leadership. You can reach out to five people in your professional network who can give you unbiased and honest feedback about your performance and skills.📌 Next, understand your company’s approach to your specific role. Set up a meeting with HR or your manager to learn about the job hierarchy. What level are you in the hierarchy? In the last five years, has anyone in your position been promoted to the next level?📌 The hard reality is that, sometimes, a promotion has nothing to do with you. If the company has reached its limits on the number of people it can hire or the compensation it can pay out, it may take time to get a budget approved to promote someone.📌 If you’ve explored all options and you feel like you’ve hit a dead end, decide if you’d like to explore lateral roles within the organization, wait for a promotion, or look for roles in other companies that may be willing to hire you for the next level.—Adapted from "Ask an Expert: Why Am I Not Getting Promoted?" by Amii Barnard-Bahn.
