#9 applies to me.

#9. I have three steps to promotion that have never failed me. 1. Make friends with your boss/management. Go out for drinks, chit chat, ask them to help you with small favors, etc.
2. Call yourself a boss/supervisor or if you can't make people think of you as one. For instance if you can run a training on something you're good at. Be the go to for all new hires' questions. I worked in a call center and I convinced my bosses to take supervisor calls from angry customers for other reps and introduced myself as "acting supervisor" so and so. That way when a position comes up everyone already associates you with management.
3. Only give 60% everyday. If you give 100% you WILL burnout its inevitable or just get more work. If you stick to about 60% when a promotion becomes available you can bump up the effort to stand out to.your boss. That way right when they are looming for the best fit they keep seeing how much you've "improved" and they will be thinking about you when you need them to. dash

"“How?” – I got this one from a negotiating book by Chris Voss – former FBI Hostage Negotiator, lots of parallels for parenting young kids.

How can we go to the playground if you don’t put your shoes on?

How can we put dessert on your plate when there are vegetable in the way?

How can you have fun tomorrow if you don’t go to bed?

It flips the script on my kids – instead of giving orders, I’m trying to help them get what they want (by having them do what I want) and asking them for the solution. Yeah they can get smart and give chippy answers, but you just keep asking them how…."
