Promo Playbook

back with a “5 minute Friday” audio edition

key concepts I cover in this snippet:

  1. there is a playbook for successful promotions in an organization

  2. the 3 key pieces are what, how, and why

  3. what was the quantifiable, undeniable, top-level business impact

  4. how was the impact delivered and perceived cross-functionally

  5. why is now the moment to recognize this person vs just waiting

I’ve summarized this into a visual guide as well…

you can also join the conversation on Twitter via the Tweet below.

You can discuss these ideas further with me in the subscriber chat in the Substack app.

I’d love to hear from listeners about their experiences with promotions - please chime in via comments👇. And if you enjoyed this post, please consider subscribing.
