I am a "future" manager currently in a sales role at a mid-size private company. My current manager has been very helpful in answering questions and exposing me to opportunities outside of my current responsibilities knowing my career aspirations. I have exceeded sales goals each year and received high marks on my quarterly and annual reviews. Unfortunately, one-on-one's are not part of our company culture (currently), therefore I have to initiate any conversations around opportunities and my preparedness for the next level. Jack Welch warns of wearing your career goals on your sleeve! How often should career goals and progress be discussed with your current management? If my manager approves, should I approach higher levels to make sure they are aware of my accomplishments and goals?
I have gained so much knowlege from your podcasts. Today, I finally got caught up from day one! When given the opportunity, I plan to incorporate all that I have learned to inspire and lead a team to achieve great results!
