Every time I would launch an initiative successfully, my boss would get promoted, his boss would get promoted and they would give me an award. I spoke to both of them about me actually getting promoted and they made empty promises. That was hard! Over time I got a mentor/sponsor who told me to keep doing what I’m doing.
