Are you doing these 5 things to ruin your chances of a career promotion?

5 THINGS YOU ARE DOING THAT ARE PROBABLY KILLING YOUR CHANCES OF CAREER PROGRESSION 

And what you should do instead!

Most people are doing these things without even realising

1. Doing favour tasks / helping friends at work

This one can be controversial, but you know what we mean and it’s your progress & prioritises we’re protecting.

When someone visits your desk it can often be to push their request to the top of your queue. Now we’re not saying don’t make friends & allies (you need allies at work!) but being too nice can affect your chances of promotion. Not to mention while you’re too busy doing this, you’re not tackling the stuff that matters. Learn to say no or pass people through the proper process, in a couple of asks they’ll learn to do this automatically.

2. Keeping your career goals secret 

If your manager doesn’t know your aspirations then they can’t be in a position to help. Remember that job interview question: where do you see yourself in 5 yrs time? You were expected to be ambitious! A good manager will always support you and make opportunities. Of course, it may seem awkward if it is their role, but ultimately we’re all responsible for our own succession planning to help us get that next promotion!

3. Trying to do too Much

Now we know multitasking is NOT productive, but this is more about focusing on everything & not that ONE BIG thing. They call it your rock! The one thing that won’t move! This should be 

something that will mark you as an incredible achiever. Work out what that is. What is the one thing you were hired to improve? The one thing that this business NEEDs you to do? Talk it out.

4. Failing to deliver

Remember that thing you said you would look at / do for that VIP – well why is it still on your to-do list? Why did it not get finished? Your reputation suffers if you don’t deliver. Before you promise, make sure you can and then make sure you deliver! Don’t wait to be chased.

5. Making too many excuses

There’s a tipping point, too many excuses ruins your credibility. Even making excuses for why you haven’t made personal progress. Let’s be the ones that make it happen, and when things don’t go to plan, acknowledge why, but then be the one that makes it happen anyway.

What Next?

The worst thing we can do it nothing, if you recognise that you may be making any of these career mistakes then take action today.

Think about:

  • What things will you immediately stop doing?
  • What do you need strategies/ advice to start doing right?
  • If you haven’t done #3, How are you going to communicate with your boss your career goals?
