Promotions Are So Yesterday Book

Resources for Our Promotions Are So Yesterday PALs

Promotions Are SO YesterdayPromotions Are So Yesterday is my response to one of the most persistent and perilous problems within today's workplace. Our decades-old default mindset that conflates career development with promotions is damaging engagement and job satisfaction. It's hurting innovation and performance. And it’s seriously jeopardizing the ability to retain top talent.

But there’s some good news in all of this. My 10 years of field research and a global validation study found that there are seven other dimensions that people find even more interesting than the classic climb up the corporate ladder. The Multidimensional Career Framework at the heart of Promotions Are So Yesterday shifts the focus from that next position to the employee’s more profound and personal priorities to develop in areas such as contribution, competence, connection, confidence, challenge, contentment, and choice.
