While being promoted to a new role can feel like a major individual accomplishment, it’s important to remember that your whole team is a crucial part of this next step. So don’t shut them out — listen to and learn from them instead.

A member of the Thrive Global community shares how she learned this lesson:  

“A promotion feels like it’s all about you, but the job is really all about the mission and your team. So take the time to listen, try to understand any issues, and learn what motivates them. This helps you build a foundation for future success!”

—Pamela Bennett, entrepreneur and consultant, Phoenix, AZ
