but there are a few tactics that can help put your career on the fast track.

they’re gonna pick the person that the rest of the team can get behind.
So play the bigger game and don’t just focus on your individual success.

So ask your boss what that 5% is for them, and then keep adding value to it.
Then when it’s promotion time,
your boss’s decision should be pretty clear cut.
And number three, take calculated risks.
In large part, leaders are chosen because they are seen as innovators within the organization
and in order to innovate within an organization, you have to challenge the status quo.
Now don’t just go in there and start suggesting radical changes off the bat,
get to know the organization over time,
figure out how you could make it better,
and then work with upper management on implementing your ideas.
It’s that kind of ambition that often leads to career advancement.
In the end, the most important thing to remember is have patience,
