So your boss called you into her office for your annual review. You talked a little about performance improvement, poked around your strengths a bit and got the well-deserved accolades that you needed to get you back on to doing what you do best.
What just happened?
You forgot to discuss your promotion proposal and just left a big wad of cash on the desk!
Don’t miss your chance at making more money! A three-percent raise is hardly what you’re worth. I don’t care if the “budget is tight.” There are more ways than one to squeeze “bucks” from a turnip (uh, I mean organization).
Yes, it’s not all about the money, it’s about happiness. Sure, that might include more money, but there could be (and should be) more including balance, purpose, prestige, dreams, recognition, benefits, contribution, etc.
Be ready to roll with your promotion proposal at any time before the door closes on career happiness.
