Don’t down­play your role

Los Angeles Times - - JOBS -

Team spirit is an ad­mirable trait, and one that’s cru­cial to suc­ceed­ing in any or­ga­ni­za­tion. But there’s a dif­fer­ence be­tween giv­ing ev­ery­one credit where credit’s due and min­i­miz­ing the im­por­tance of your own per­sonal role in team suc­cesses. Your boss is busy deal­ing with big­pic­ture is­sues and day-to-day fires; the best way to make sure he no­tices the amaz­ing work you’re do­ing is to point it out. Per­for­mance re­views are a great place to high­light the value you bring to your com­pany. Keep track through­out the year of any big wins (or small-but-crit­i­cal wins) you helped bring about, and when your boss asks you how you think you did this year, have your ma­te­rial ready.
