Mapping out your organization's structure can show you the people that need to be aware of your hard work. Knowing who these people are and making yourself visible to them will set you up for success.
Action steps: Get out a paper and pencil. Draw out your organization's structure (take a look at the image on this post as an example) Circle the person who decides if you get a raise or a promotion. Next, put rectangles around the top people who will influence the circle's decision. Now think of ways to get the circle to notice you (give presentations, write reports for them, etc.), prioritize the work of the rectangles, and most of all, ensure you keep circles and rectangles happy.
Share the way you plan on getting noticed in the comments.
