Ever wonder why the people around you are getting promoted and you aren’t? Do you have a strange feeling management doesn't like or respect you? Concerned you aren’t seen as an asset to the organization? Test yourself! Ask yourself the following to see if you are at risk of being a nobody to your boss:
  1. Do you ever find out after the fact about a meeting that took place where a decision that directly affects your work was made without you being able to provide input?
  2. Does your boss regularly tell you “Thanks, but no thanks” when you offer your help or a suggestion to improve something?
  3. Do you think your boss has "favorites" in the office and there is no sense in trying to become one of them?
  4. Have you ever had an element of your job taken away from you and given to someone else because your boss felt they were “better equipped” to handle it?
If you said "Yes" to one or more of these, then you may be fading away on-the-job…and that puts you at risk of losing your job if you don’t fix it!
