Dear Partners - Excuse if already being asked (I spent reasonable effort to re-use through 'search') I'm a 3rd year M pursuing an SM promo.

What does a EFFICIENT SM1/SM2 look like for you? 3. At this stage I am in, what can I do to make my SM promo a REASONABLE "shoo in"? I'm working with key PPMDs on my promotion readiness. Thx!

1. Read the framework and expectations for that level in your firm. Consult with your counselor and mentors on whether there is anything else. Execute on that. Generally speaking, at my firm, managers are expected to lead technical delivery, build effective relationships with client and manage them appropriately, and take care of their teams. 2. Efficient at any level implies that it is a person who works smart. At SM level, it is someone who is able to effectively prioritize, delegate and pull in others when help is needed recognizing this is a team sport, and know when to say no. 3. Look at M and SM frameworks and expectations and execute on them. Continue to have conversations around your expectations with your engagement teams and partners in your practice to ensure you’re on the same page. Seek feedback. Manage your brand. 4. Don’t use caps when you type. It is annoying to read. Also learn who your audience is - the terms you threw in are specific to your firm and you’re posting in a broad forum and asking for some specific advice without giving us any background.

Thank you and agree on point 4. It felt good to relax my business communication side of mind a bit given this was an informal community but point well taken.

I’ll wait for the honest response of “Do all of the above for a few years only to get disappointed every year”

I grew up in a family that doesn’t really resolve conflict. We make passive aggressive comments or just brush it under the rug because it always blows up into a fight.

What’s the best way to do this?
