THE CHALLENGE YOU MISS OUT ON A PROMOTION THE SOLUTION USE FEEDBACK TO GET STRONGER
Patience is definitely a virtue in this situation. You need to show some humility – get some good honest feedback from the boss, then thank them for giving it. You can say that you’ve taken the advice on board and that you still feel you’re good enough for the position. Control what you can control – which means your behaviour and attitude. Act on their feedback and make sure that the next time it comes up you have a better chance of getting that promotion.
