How to get a promotion without giving in to your boss and making an injury claim if you need to
Some employers will think that as an employee you basically have to do as you are told all of the time in order to be a good worker and someone that they want to have on their team all of the time.
This means that the people that are seen as the most obedient are likely to get promotions first and those who think for themselves can get looked over, which actually doesn’t make sense as these are the people that will do best in management roles. Here are some ways for you to climb the career ladder without always doing what your boss tells you to.
- Do your job well. You can do your job well without always doing exactly what your boss tells you to do. Remember that you are the one doing your job and not your boss, so it is likely that you actually have a better idea of what needs to be done and how to do it. If your job is getting done, and being done well, your boss will still see the merit in your methods.
- Provide proof of your hard work. Keep notes and records which indicate how much work you are getting done each week, and that this is helping the company in some way. This way, if your boss disagrees with your methods or demands that you try something else, you can make a compelling case for sticking to your original methods.
- Ask for a promotion. If you feel that you are somehow being overlooked by your boss because you don’t do exactly what you are told all the time, let them know that you are interested in being promoted and taking on new challenges, and explain how your methods of working actually make you ideal for management. Your boss may prefer the idea of you in a leadership role, in many ways.
