Deal with disaster
When a catastrophe arises, it’s now your responsibility to handle it. ‘Don’t run to someone else to help you fix things,’ says Susan Wilson Solovic, author of The Girls’ Guide to Power and Success (Amacom). ‘If your boss felt you earned the promotion, she/he also expects you to get a grip on the dilemma.’ So when a stuff-up rears its head, imagine the best possible outcome, summon your problem-solving instincts and hit the ground running.
