Your Route to the Top: How to get noticed

Take the lead. Set the mood rather than follow it. Be more energetic but more measured. Whatever you think is needed to establish the right tone, take charge and you'll be noticed for it.

Challenge conventions. Established systems are there for good reasons, but sometimes rules need to be broken.

Do more than is asked. Volunteer to manage tasks and be responsible for projects. This will win over grateful allies and show colleagues that you're ready to take more on.

Adopt a cause. That might be taking a stance on the office recycling policy or getting involved in local politics. Pick your battles wisely, but make sure you have them from time to time.
