Reaching higher levels in your career is about more than just doing great work in your current position. Around the Equilibrium Marketing Solutions office, we sometimes discuss the most effective strategies for ascending the career ladder. Here are a few steps we view as essential to reaching our ultimate aspirations.
Executive presence is one intangible quality we’re working on to position ourselves for advancement. This comes down to the impressions we make on others and whether it inspires confidence. Our speech is an area that impacts executive presence, so we’re working on being clearer in our messaging. We try to maintain an authoritative tone while also getting straight to the point with concise statements.
We’ve also learned the importance of having effective sponsors in our corners. It’s essential to find someone in an elevated position who will vouch for your talents and help you get more exposure. Once you’re introduced to this person, it’s crucial to follow up so that you stay fresh in his or her mind. We try to offer something of value when we reach out to a potential Equilibrium Marketing Solutions supporter, such as a link to an article he or she might find especially interesting. From there, it’s easier to ask for a specific type of help in taking our careers to the next levels.
These are just a couple of the key steps involved in achieving real career growth. For more advancement insights, follow the Equilibrium Marketing Solutions Instagram.
