Every employee aims to be promoted to the next level one day or the other. Having this as your goal, you end up taking more responsibilities, work overtime, sacrifice your personal time, worry about nothing but work. And, when the day you dreamt of comes by, you would be surprised to find your colleague who hasn't done anything grab that promotion. If you're reading this, you have already come across that situation at least once and struggling to find the solution for that.

Well, you are in the right place. Firstly, I would like to appreciate your efforts in trying to find out what went wrong. That means, you have crossed the first stage which is ACCEPTANCE.

As the saying goes,

The best way to learn from your mistakes is to admit them rather than to blame them on someone else

Now that you know that the fault is on your end, let's see what are those factors that contributed to your failure.

1. Effective Communication

Your communication skills play a vital role in your profession, a lot more than you could imagine. Most people associate communication skills to language skills and end up focusing on the wrong thing again.

Communication is nothing but the exchange of thoughts or ideas from one person to another. Language is a medium that is being used to help you communicate.

But, when you're good at it you can build a rapport with anyone, anyplace, anytime. This in turn contributes for a healthy relationship and understanding with your teammates, your boss and your client.

2. Emotional Quotient (EQ)

You must be familiar with IQ, but what is this EQ ? The higher the Emotional Quotient, the higher the ability for you to be in control of your emotions and others.

An Emotionally Intelligent person, is the one that is reliable and most trustworthy, the most important qualities of a good leader. The management would be looking for someone, who can handle the most complicated situation in a calm and composed manner.

3. Etiquette

Everyone appreciates a well behaved resource. The one who knows how to take care of themselves in different scenarios. Workplace etiquette is one of the key factors considered during a change of role.

Manners maketh a man

4. Time Management

Are you one of those who end up saying that you don't have time for anything ? Well, this is a big red alert for you. The way you manage your time, indirectly conveys how good of a multi-tasker you are, how well organized you are and your sincerity towards the work assigned to you.

The more tardy you are, the higher the rate of you not being promoted. Everyone likes to work with a person who is well organized, not a lager.

5. Interpersonal Skills

The ability for a person to strike a chord with either an individual or a group depends on his / her interpersonal skills. It is the attribute through which you tend to focus on work with each other, rather than against each other.
