A Paradox between Nuestra Cultura & Professional Advancement
A strong work ethic will not necessary get you promoted.
You put your head down and produce. Then, you are asked to do a little more because leadership knows it will get done. And, you wind up being asked to do more….and more…..cause it gets done.
It is in your DNA, your upbringing, to be useful and to succeed in and accomplish what you set out to do. You honor your hardworking parent or role models by doing so. It is what they taught you with their long hours of work, evening stoicism and early departures the next morning.
You believe the work will speak for itself.
You do not seek the spotlight or market yourself about the great work you do. And, the opportunities pass you up.
Understanding the reality of this paradox and empowering yourself to be seen, to be visible, is important.
