P1 First Person: Life after the promotional process
Principles for handling the results of a promotional process... good or bad
By John Bermel
Do a simple search and you will find many resources offering strategies to prepare for a promotional exam. You will also find an equal number offering strategies for participating in a promotional process. But do a search for how to live in your organization after a process and you will find precious few resources to help you after the process. Ironically, the post process period is the time that will most define your character and value to the organization. So, in the spirit of serving excellently, I would like to set the bar and offer strategies for how to finish a promotional process well, regardless of what side of the decision you are on.
