Didn't get the promotion you wanted? Here is a list of possible reasons why:
1. You made the mistake of thinking you were the only one being considered for the promotion.
2. You decided to show up and wing it. "Winging it" is never a strategy.
3. You didn't make enough eye contact. Or worse, you made too much eye contact and creeped the interviewer out.
4. Your answers to their interview questions were boring and unremarkable.
5. You talked about your past accomplishments, but didn't speak to the value you could provide in this new position.
6. Your body language gave away the nervousness and anxiety you were trying to hide.
7. Your handshake was weak or it was wet from holding the chilled glass of water they offered you.
8. You weren't dressed for the position you want to hold.
I have an excellent track record helping people land their dream jobs because they learn how to walk in prepared, confident, and ready for their interviews. Let's work together!
You have to make...
It’s hard to behave in an authentic way if you don’t know what you value and desire. At its root, authenticity requires self-awareness and self-knowledge, and accepting your strengths and weaknesses.
Acceptance isn’t always easy, but it’s what we strive for. Authenticity is the basis of executive presence. Trust your intuition. Choose things that move you closer to your values. Notice when you’re being inauthentic.
Research shows that authentic people feel better. They’re more resilient and less likely to turn to self-destructive habits. Authenticity develops trust, credibility, and confidence with the people you interact with.
Authenticity can feel scary and vulnerable, but it also builds intimacy. Be purposeful in your choices. If you’re finding yourself feeling fragmented, bored, unhappy, or uninspired, it could be that you aren’t acting authentically. Creating space for self-awareness is ever-evolving.
