I asked a couple of month ago for some advice regarding a very special career issue. The answer was: "... deliver results and give it some time ...".

After listening to lots of Manager-Tool podcasts., I started  thinking about my role, my behaviour with directs, skips, peers and bosses. I changed a lot:

learned to delegate and listen to my directs. learned to understand, that we are not all high-Ds. Learned only to be a high-D if needed. learned, that at some level, there is no one who will guide you (BTW: Are you giving feedback to you directs regularly?)

Promotion to the next level is coming - got the message last month.

Thank so much to the MT Team and the MT community.
