Part 1 of our guidance on what to do when directs ask how they can get promoted. Rather than get frustrated, give them a professional answer.

The media today would have us all believe that millennials are different, because they're asking much sooner, "how can I get promoted," and, "when can I get promoted." This is met with consternation, because they should know better, they should trust the organizational process, because they ought to know they're not ready.

All of this is silly, because directs have been asking that for decades. And if they're asking, it means they don't know...and their manager would be the one to tell them.
