Many young supervisors in the workplace do not know what it takes to get promoted. It’s not their fault; they are learning how to CLIMB up the corporate ladder. I coach those on the fast-track to help them learn better how to GLIDE up the corporate ladder.
I also do training with organizational executives on how to establish a means to identify intrepreneurs and how to groom those ‘fast-trackers’ for succession planning.
Here is 1 of 35 steps from my 1-day Intrepreneur Power: Glide up the Corporate Ladder program. It works in most situations.
Once hired or promoted into a new job, follow the steps below:
Year One: Learn the job well. Become an expert on the processes in the new area.
Year Two: Improve the processes and train people for greater efficiency and effectiveness.
Year Three: Look to be promoted in order to take what you know to an area of greater responsibility and accountability. If it's not possible within the same organization, go where there is opportunity for advancement.
