The book provides a series of recommended behaviors and behaviors not to follow. Following the advice of the author is supposed to help lead toward a promotion. I am confident that many of the concepts are beneficial and will lead to increased success. The book is somewhat boring but probably useful. I mildly recommend this book. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0738201022, Paperback)

Getting Promoted is the rare occupational-planning resource that doesn't insist that the grass is always greener in the business park across the highway. Chambers contends that many who move from company to company in order to advance their careers would actually do better if they stayed put and rededicated themselves to their existing positions. He focuses on making the best of the present job "and reaping the harvest from the field you have already cultivated, planted, and nurtured." In fact, he cautions, "it may actually be detrimental to your career to abandon your current efforts and achievements just to start anew!" Chambers, president of an Atlanta-based consulting and training firm, lays out workplace truths and challenges that can affect upward movement these days, as well as key skills that could boost the possibility of internal promotion. Fashioned from personal experience, research, and interviews with managers and trainers in diverse industries, Getting Promoted recommends a variety of tactics that readers can craft into personalized strategies. Periodic assessments permit the honest evaluation of appropriate talents and abilities, along with identification of realistic opportunities for growth and development. --Howard Rothman
