[Ambitious Introverts] 5 Tips for Getting Visibility from Upper Management and Why It’s Important

If you have even the smallest amount of ambition for your career, visibility to the decision makers is critical.

We hear about visibility but we don’t always understand it or think working togetherit’s in our control. Let’s look at it and why it’s important to your career:

Visibility is two-ways. Never thought of that before did you?

It’s important for key decision makers to have exposure or contact with you. It’s part of decision making. If management or your customers understand what you contribute and how well you do it, they are more apt to think of you for things like promotions and opportunities.

It’s important for you to see what’s going on with them, which is why visibility is really two-way. If you can see what your decision makers are focusing on and what is important to them you are positioned to respond to it better. It’s a classic business proposition. If you aren’t supplying what your customer wants (in this case upper management or customers) then you won’t be the one they select for anything. Stark but true.

Here are some things for the kind of visibility you want to get:

1- Don’t be in awe. Oftentimes, we allow ourselves to get intimidated by those ranked above us. You have to understand they are people too and also are working for a living. That means they also want to be successful in their job. Certainly, you want to be respectful of their time but don’t steer clear of them thinking what you do is unimportant. If it were unimportant, they would have never hired you.
2- Pay attention and ask questions. The most prized of all people and therefore employees are the ones who show an interest. Interest starts by being curious and involved with the goals of the other person. If you feel like you can’t form good questions, pay attention to what they pay attention to and ask your boss for more insight.
3- Share important things you do that they might find interesting. Not everything you do falls into this category, which means the previous tip, is vital in figuring out what to share.
4- Pick the right time. You don’t necessarily have to schedule time for your share. You can share in-group meetings, hallway or for an unplanned office drop in. Look for opportunities.
5- The right amount. One thing introverts have to watch out for is sharing too much information. We usually house in our heads a ton of good stuff. When you share with upper management, they usually can only handle the top level input on a topic. I call this the “scratch and sniff” of information sharing. Short and to the point is what will win the heart of an executive.

Visibility is part of what you create when you are self-promoting. Self-promotion is important for ongoing career growth. If not YOU, then who?
