Iskaral Pust Posted January 28, 2021 Share Posted January 28, 2021 @A True Kaniggit more context is needed before you go asking for a raise. Is this a big employer with a fixed annual cycle for pay reviews? Did they always expect you to take on this additional work once you got up to speed? Either of those would say don’t ask for a raise yet. But at a minimum you should have a conversation about what are the expectations for your current role and current pay, and then naturally push for when and why your pay level should advance. Everyone should have solid mutual expectations with their boss. @kairparavel take the coaching when it’s offered like that. Unless someone is being really skeevy and suggests they do it over dinner, then take them up on the offer. They only offered because they think you’re lacking it and that you’re worth investing their time to do it. It’s not cheating to receive advice or coaching to help you develop. Would you not try to coach people who you were managing? It’s great that you’re doing so well in your new job, especially one you started during COVID. Not an easy time to find your feet in a new organization. But if you want to advance into more senior roles, you need to be able to articulate your perception, thought process and judgment of possible situations. Don’t think about it as self-promotion, think about it as assessing what is needed in a situation, what are the viable options to deliver that, and what is your preferred route and why. That is your leadership style. Step outside of yourself as you look at the situation (even a hypothetical one). Operating at a more senior level is usually about greater and greater abstraction: instead of doing something you think about how others should do it, then you think about why they should do it, and then you move on to what anyone should be doing in the first place. Most management speak is about conveying those abstractions to others who hold a similar picture. Best of luck. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
