How to get a promotion: we talk with the boss
Asking to raise their manager in office is not an easy matter. However, you need to gather strength and do everything possible to climb the career ladder a step higher. To do this, you should prepare yourself mentally and choose the right moment to talk with management.
Preparing for a conversation
You can not come to the boss, punch the table and ask for a raise. Such a philosophy will not lead to the desired goal, on the contrary, it is a direct way to dismissal from the company. It is necessary to justify your demand for promotion, otherwise nothing will come of it. First you should prepare for a conversation with the boss. The first step is to answer the question: "Why should a subordinate be promoted?"
For this reason, it is necessary to prepare a list of their achievements. In order not to look unfounded, it will be necessary to back up your words with specific figures and documents confirming success. You can also note that we managed to learn during the time of work in this company what tasks or activities were mastered, that is, how much the employee has expanded his functional as a specialist. All this will help to achieve promotion on the career ladder.
Choosing the right moment
Preparation for the conversation is not limited only to the systematization of their knowledge, achievements and arguments in favor of raising. Success depends also on the correct timing and timing for the conversation. It is not recommended to pester the boss with a request for an increase in the morning, because at this time he has a lot of work. It would be much better to come and talk to him after dinner.
In addition, you should look at the situation more widely. So, when things are not going well in the company, most likely, the employee will be refused. Also, you should not pester the boss with talking about raising, when he is not in the spirit. As a rule, such a conversation will not bring anything good, and, perhaps, even the working relations will be badly spoiled.
Often, employees asking for promotion, make mistakes that block the way to their dream. You should know about them so that you do not make them later. So, some employees are asking for an increase at corporate parties. Of course, the boss is in a good mood, but in most cases the request is left without attention. This is due to the fact that the manager is in a relaxed state and simply does not want to think about business at the moment. Do not blackmail the boss of his care, as he can fire on the article, and this will be a huge stain in the biography, and good recommendations from the workplace will not have to wait.
