From house author and popular management trainer, Harry Chambers, comes a paperback original for ambitious individuals who aspire to achieve growth, development, and promotability in their current job. Chambers dispels the modern day myth that "the only way to move up is to move out," and provides a wide array of hands-on strategies and tactics to analyze today's promotional realities, obtain critical skills, recognize internal and external obstacles, and position yourself for success. Drawing from original interview research with managers and trainers in a wide array of industries,Getting Promotedshows workers at all levels how to focus on the most promotable skills, manage perceptions of colleagues and bosses, avoid promotion-killing behaviors, and assess the competitive landscape.
