Starting a discussion about a promotion and pu bump. I have done was asked by my old boss and had an underperforming direct report. I still accomplished my tasks and helped our corporate team particularly with data analysis for most of last year, and working with a new boss. My new boss seems hesitant about promoting another person in my team. How can I make a strong case without making the aforementioned barriers seems like excuses?

Your post sounds to me like you are doing your job. Promotion means you are already doing some or all of what is expected at the next level. Make sure you detail your accomplishments clearly and how you compare to the promotion criteria. Think bigger.

Detailing your accomplishments and growth can be done without bragging. Put things in a spreadsheet in a logical fashion based on your firm’s criteria and you will be prepared.
