When can you believe a manager that says you’re in line for a promotion?
My guess is the answer is never. That you have to use your own intuition and self-reflection and give yourself an honest idea of how likely you are to move up into that better position. Again, just off my guessing, I’d say it’s a tool used by management to encourage productivity and ambition, because when I hear those words it generally seems hollow.
Give me your thoughts people, I’d really like to hear some new perspectives. Especially from people in management. What’s going through your head when you tell someone that? How many people do you say that to when a promotion opens up? Totally open to the possibility I’m way off base.
