You’re somewhat new to your position, but you’ve been doing it long enough that you think this is something you could stick with for the long haul. Your daily routines are solid and you’re aware of most of the tasks your role requires.
But you know you’re a little green still and always looking for ways to learn new things—especially new ways to impress and help the people around you. Managing can be a tricky role because everyone you work with had a different set of priorities. But as you grow in the role, you’ll soon discover the best ways to roll with the punches and work with different team members. And when you do this, you’ll find that you’re irreplaceable as a manager. Here are a few tips to fast track you to that stage in your career.
1. Be up-to-date
When something changes, be the first one to learn it. Make yourself irreplaceable by becoming the person people go to with questions they’re too afraid to ask their own managers. If people see you as someone who learns quickly and shares that knowledge readily, you’ll be respected and appreciated.
