Everyone in an organization plays a role in that organization’s success and everyone starts their career in an organization somewhere, usually at or near the entry-level. That can be intensely frustrating to the young and ambitious … or the not-so-young and still ambitious.
Unfortunately, we are rarely promoted the moment we are (or at least think we are) ready to be. In the meantime, our organization — our boss, our colleagues, our customers, everyone — is counting on us to succeed at the job we currently have. And that promotion is based less on our potential in the next job than our success in the present one. (Show me someone who was promoted on perceived potential alone and I’ll show you a failure waiting to happen.)
