As part of a goals discussion, I was recently given some feedback by my manager to be more "self-promoting". According to him, this will better my chances for promotion by making my good work more visible to senior executives.
I thanked him and accepted the challenge! Believe me, I am more than aware that this kind of positive feedback is rare and it's given me a great opportunity.
Being somewhat of a high S/high C, I am not a natural at this kind of thing. I prefer to work quietly and steadily in the background, slowly improving and excelling. What approach do you all suggest for me here? One thing I've thought about: sending out email updates on my team's accomplishments to senior management. Is this a good idea? I've even considered just getting out of my office and walking around the building to "comunicate informally upwards" to whatever exec I happen to run across. Any other suggestions for "tooting my own horn" the MT way?
