It’s not enough to do the work and think someone will promote you. Should you take that approach, you - like so many of my clients - will experience frustration and disappointment. Leaders aren’t mind readers. • Communicate wins and goals to your leader. • Solicit feedback within the next 30 days from your leader. • Be aware of changing organizational priorities and your performance expectations. | Fairygodboss

This one spoke volumes! Be aware of changing organizational priorities and your performance expectations. These aren't always stated in writing.

Yessss! Raise your hand! Don’t think that hard work is always noticed. Don’t feel offended when promotion opportunities pass by you and “you weren’t considered even though you work more and are more prepared than Jake”. Jake probably raised his hand. Jake probably jumped on grabbing the opportunity even though he knows he is not 100% ready for the role. There’s a lot of unconscious biases out there, sometimes bosses assume our focus as women is strictly our families and not so much our careers. So speak up! Let them know you are available and interested. I got my first promotion many moons ago....and it didn’t happen because of my hard work, that helped of course, but the trigger was that I said hey ?? look at me.

I could not agree with this more. You must be always marketing yourself, evaluating yourself, learning new skills and making space for growth and new connections.
