Which commonly overlooked promotion factors are you missing?

I am happy for them, but why not me?

Over the years, the most common executive coaching conversation I’ve had with all levels of leaders has been “how do I get promoted?”  Most of the time, these leader s have demonstrated exceptional skills and very high levels of performance and likely have the tools needed to be successful at the next level and beyond.

Listen below to get of sense of the direction given and the tension released during these discussions.

(Note: If you ask the next generation to review your audio script, they get a chance to avoid our mistakes and maybe return your audio with a little something extra on it.)


  • Think back to when you had the opportunity to plead your promotion case, did you sell the right benefits?
  • List how you will help the company and your bosses after your promotion.
  • Where will you develop and demonstrate the next level skills that support your ability to deliver the benefits above?

This is the last Weekend to register for the first Focus@Will at will give away.  Round one entries close Midnight July 4th and winners announced in next week post.

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance”
    between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for
    me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

  2. You actually make it seem so simple together with your presentation but I find this topic to get actually something which I think I
    would personally never understand. It seems like too complex and extremely
    broad in my opinion. I am just anticipating for your upcoming post,
    I’ll try to find the hang of it!

    • As I read your comments, I am reminded how clueless I was at the beginning of my professional journey. Think of all the skills acquired in your life to date. Do you remember a time when things you now take for granted seemed beyond your reach? Reciting alphabet or bike riding is not accomplished without some mistakes and hard work. This topic is not different. The skills required here are not difficult they are just different. If I can help you accelerate your learning, please let me know.

  3. Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thank you so much, However I am dealing with troubles with your RSS.
    I don’t know exactly why I am struggling to join it.

    Can there be anybody else getting a similar RSS problems?
    Anybody who knows the perfect solution would you like
    to kindly respond? Thanx!!

  4. Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own, personal site soon but I’m just a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose beginning from a totally free platform
    like WordPress or take a paid option? There
    are so many choices on the market that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Appreciate it!
