It was mentioned to me that what’s holding me back from a promo is “getting more client reps.” I asked a colleague what they think this means and their answer was helpful but informally worded. Can someone help me word these into professional goals I can take to my RL to help me achieve? “You need to be front-and-center with the client, and present a significant amount of information to them that you owned start to finish. You need to be able to manage and work with the client”
