We analyzed research findings from the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM), one of Europe’s leading management organizations, to provide you with three positive actions you can immediately begin taking to help you advance your career. Men are found to be better at exhibiting these behaviors, but there is no reason you can’t be very skilled at employing them too.

  1. Fly above the radar — take credit for your successes and accomplishments. Find a comfortable way to make your accomplishments known.
  2. Raise your hand — ask and apply for the assignments, jobs, promotions, and compensation you want.
  3. Speak up — get your opinions and ideas across (interrupt if you have to).
