Dig deep to find answers to your level of performance as most of the company promote their employees on their performance throughout the year.

Also, measure your performance as per the contribution you made to high-stakes projects and your ability to form a high-performing team. However, if you score well in all these areas, focus on the bigger picture. See if you are fit for a bigger role than this. Prepare for it and in case you have already mastered skills for it, try to fill the gap (if any) to keep yourself future-ready.

Advocate your performance if needed, brag about it where you think you have outperformed. Sometimes you need to showcase your work in a bid to gain attention of the management and earn the desired credits for it. After all, who in effort without a purpose?
