After a big promotion, or a much–needed job change, we are finally in a position to have our ideas heard. As we settle into our new role, it’s tempting to take advantage of it — after all, our bosses did, too.
This is the perfect time to stop trying so hard. Just like your old boss.
But there is another way forward.
It stems from the realization that there’s always a next step, and there’s always someone else following behind you.
You could clear a better path for those following behind you.
You could use your new power to share your insight about the job you had before — no one knows it better than you did until you got that fancy promotion.
You could use your new power to make the lives of others better — this is the hospitality business, after all.
