How often have you looked around and the people who started with you are on to other jobs and your still doing the same old, same old? Well, here is an article to help you look into the mirror and solve your issue/s. Take the advice of Eva Rykrsmith and turn the tide or use what Eva states and help the colleagues you manage to achieve success with a little counseling from you! Consider how often you take the time to develop others, for instance. Sure, it's easy to say “that's not my job”, but it's something that leadership looks for in someone they want to promote. If you aren't showing a natural inclination to lead, why move you to that position? And how do you respond to a new situation or emergency? According to the article, freezing is a surefire way for management to know you're not quite ready for promotion: You know your job or department inside out and you are perhaps the best at your individual role. But when change comes (and it always does), and you need to think creatively or make a decision with limited information, you fall short of expectations and turn to others to make the decisions or require their assistance. People need to trust that you are going to take responsibility for your area, take action even if that includes taking risks, and that you will own it and react well when consequences arise. Take a look at this article to see if any of these 5 reasons are holding you back.
