Promoted and promotion.
It’s been a long time since i blogged regularly and as I said yesterday, much news has built up. So, this is another post getting you all caught up with life events that have happened. Yes, I know I’ve been quiet and i will be rectifying that by getting back to regular blogging.
The next great piece of news I have for you: Promoted.
Before I was surplussed at work (That was nearly 3 years ago) I was in an organization that had little to no movement. Everyone was frozen and locked into their position. No one moved up or out of the org. Things were that tight. For about 12 years I was in that group and it’s been about 15 years since my last actual promotion.
Two team Leads left our group recently (one left the company, one got promoted). i inquired each time, and after some negotiation, I was moved up to Team Lead.
This promotion doesn’t come without a lot of effort on my part. I had taken leadership mentoring, I’d mentored with other leaders (Both Technical Directors and team leads). I took leadership training courses. Participated in leadership forums. I spent the last three years working with my Technical Director so he knew my motivations and goals.
Am I excited? Oh heck yeah! This is my first promotion in about 15 years. I’ve finally moved from worker bee to the first rung of leadership. There are still many years in my career left and hopefully this first step into leadership will be one of many.
Back to yesterday’s news, yes, the book bundle is still going on. Just a reminder here. I’ll talk more about it and the others in the bundle in the coming days. So much more news to talk about. It’s an awesome time right now.
If you have any questions about the bundle, please let me know. Thank you for all your support. It means the world to me.
Until next Time!
