Don’t Fear Self-Promotion (3/10)

My biggest advice for those seeking performance acknowledgment from their boss(es) is to be comfortable being self-promotional. While a manager or supervisor may notice and even recognize you when you exceed expectations, it’s only natural that negative performance (by you or others) tends to stick out more as an outlier.

High performers need to be comfortable keeping their superiors in the loop of their wins. This can be as simple as forwarding on an email documenting a recent success with a note of “just an FYI” or “wanted to share the below with you.”
