Be Am­bi­tious

CLEO (Malaysia) - - COVER STORY -

Got ideas about where you’d like your ca­reer to go? Shar­ing them with your boss is a sure-fire way to get pro­moted. “Hav­ing a list of short- and long-term per­sonal and busi­ness goals helps you gain mo­men­tum in your ca­reer,” says Liz Atkin­son, di­rec­tor of Aus­tralian mar­ket­ing com­pany Zest Pos­si­bil­i­ties and co-founder of the League of Ex­tra­or­di­nary Women, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that sup­ports young fe­male en­trepreneurs. “It shows you have mo­ti­va­tion and fo­cus; that you un­der­stand the im­por­tance of goal set­ting and are a per­son who wants to get ahead.” Don’t shy away from let­ting your boss know you have big dreams – the peo­ple who ask for a pro­mo­tion of­ten get one.
