She shows up on time and works late when asked, has a pleasant personality, does what she’s asked to do, is friendly to co-workers, and completes most projects on time. Her performance appraisals each year are good, not at the highest possible scores, but she always receives “meets expectations” and “performing as expected” ratings along with positive comments from her manager. Brenda is puzzled as to why she doesn’t receive the promotions she feels she deserves. As she says, “I always keep my head down at work and stay very focused on getting things done. So how come I keep being overlooked for promotions? What am I doing wrong?”While our high school and college educations gave us a foundation of knowledge and skills, what it didn’t do is prepare us to navigate the continual changes in the workplace and achieve promotions. The popular notion has always been to join a company, do your best, and hope that somebody, some day, recognizes your work and plucks you from the masses for a promotion. Yeah, right. Has this happened to you? It doesn’t happen for most of us.The best place to start if you want to obtain promotions is…by looking within yourself. This Career Savvy Report focuses on 10 key attributes of women who consider themselves to be successful in their careers. How many of these attributes do you possess? Carol Burnett once said, “Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.” Start changing your life by focusing on you!
