I recently hosted the webinar “5 Simple Steps to Position Yourself for Promotion”; it was a 30-minute jam-packed, high-energy career advancement webinar attended by ~80 people from 10 different organizations.
I promised to share the recording with the attendees except I realized later that we did not actually record the webinar! Argh!
This post is dedicated to all of you who attended the webinar. Thank you again for joining me, I value your time and trust.
Here is a summary of the 5-step process. Use The 5 A’s as your guide, your roadmap to building a thriving and fulfilling career.

INSTINCT – Before you do it, you actively look forward to it.
GROWTH – While doing it, you feel inquisitive and focused.
NEEDS – After you’ve done it, you feel fulfilled and authentic.
Understand your top values and the kind of impact that is meaningful to you. Ask yourself what are the next best steps in your career to have continuous external success AND internal fulfilment?
This is where you build the support team for You Inc. At the webinar, we discussed the 3 specific key roles: reporting manager, mentor, sponsor.

There will be discomfort when you're growing; so get comfortable being uncomfortable. Focus your time and energy to create the career that you want not just the job that you have today.
