Excellent at which level?

Excellent at which level?

One of the reasons you might not be getting that promotion even though you are good at what you do and have the compliments to prove it. Besides the fact that you might be a victim of discrimination at the intersection of race and gender. It could be that you are excelling at the wrong level.

This is a classic case of what got you here will not get you to the next level. You might be really good at what you do. However, each level of responsibility has key competencies that you might currently not be demonstrating the potential for.

I am sure you’ve heard of the phrase ‘dress for the job you want and not the one you have’ . That goes for your level of performance as well. This is not always about working harder and longer but about being more strategic and intentional about how you show up. It is about you position yourself for the next level.
