Thank you @BreakingBarrie3 and @dayus4heaven for the opportunity to feature this evening on #BreakingBarriers.

Our discussion tonight will focus on "9 Principles to Getting a Recognition, Promotion or Salary Increase at Work." # #HRwithEM

"Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men" is a great ancient saying which is true and relevant today. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
The saying could also be said differently, thus "if you are uniquely gotten in your work, you will rise and be promoted. You won't be held back- you will stand before kings!" #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
The way and manner in which you carry out your day to day job will determine whether you will get that recognition, promotion, or salary increase. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
In a nutshell, these sayings tell us that the hard work you do at your job translates to how much money you would make or the height of success you would attain. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
The quality of work you do is completely in your control. You can continue to do sloppy and inefficient work or you can learn to excel. You can only stand out from everyone else because of the quality of everything you do at work. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Your line manager does not have to give or recommend you for a raise or that promotion just because you wished for it or feel entitled to it. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
If, however, you have or display a spirit of excellence, and start working as hard as you can, doing the best that you can, taking on more task than just what is required of you, your line manager will notice. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Organisations reward excellence. Average work will only earn you average reward, while excellent work will earn you excellent reward. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Just like in the story of the parable of the talent, if you make someone else successful, this success will impact on you and make you successful as well. Why not help your manager be successful? Why not make your department successful? #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
The key to #BreakingBarriers to that recognition, promotion, and salary increase that you so much desire is embedded in the 9 simple principles that we would be reviewing this evening. #HRwithEM
Principle #1 - Identify your number one customer #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
I am certain that you are used to the assertion that "customer" is number one or king. In this case referring to the external customer. I would like to shock you, and state that your number one customer is NOT the external customer. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Your line manager IS your number one customer so you need to figure out what you can do to make your manager successful. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Each day at work, your preoccupation should be, "How can I make my manager's job easier?", "What can I do so that my manager does not have to spend much time at work?" #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Because you make life easier for your line manager, it becomes very easy to also make a recommendation for an excellent reward for the excellent work that you do each day. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Principle #2 - Make your line manager successful

Find out what your line manager's goals and objectives are and help him/her reach them. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Principle #3 - Find out what is important to your line manager.

Pay attention to what your line manager likes and how he/she wants things done.

What is your line manager continually complaining about or what needs to be done regularly? #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Principle #4 - Brown-nose.

Regularly finding out what you could do to make life easier, keeps you in the manager's focus. When the manager needs things done, or when it's time to recommend one for promotion, you would easily come to mind. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Principle #5 - Loyalty

Being loyal is key to #BreakingBarriers that would hinder your elevation in your current job. Never speak negatively about your line manager or the company you work for, or be around those who do. #HRwithEM
Loyalty includes taking charge of bad thoughts. So thinking bad thoughts about your line manager or the company is no different than saying them aloud. Be loyal and positive about your manager and the company at all times. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Principle #6 - Perceptions

Pay attention to the perception that your line manager has of you because it is generally his/her reality. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Understand that your line manager judges your eight hours worth of work based on the few moments he/she sees you. What you do or are doing during those few moments matter a lot. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Always work hard, but when the boss is around, work at a pace that no one could sustain.

Perception is more powerful than the truth. Guard it, protect it, enhance it. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Principle #7 - Solve Problems.

Your manager does not need you to add more problems to the list he/she already has. He/she needs solutions. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
A manger will promote and give better rewards to the people who find solutions to problems instead of bringing more to the desk. If you are not a problem solver, find out how you can become one. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Principle #8 - Keep the spirit of excellence raging inside of you.

Any job can get monotonous. Find something or get a vision that will spark that spirit of excellence at your job, so you dont get bored. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
Principle #9 - Be committed to excellence.

Vince Lombardi said, "The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavour." #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
An average or below average life is determined by your level of commitment to excellence in all that you do.

You need to evaluate your level of commitment to every aspect of your life if you want to see that change in your career progression. #BreakingBarriers #HRwithEM
