1. Every Role is a Leadership Role: Embrace the mindset that no matter your position, you have the power to lead and make an impact.

2. Build Your Brand: Understand how others perceive you. Actively shape your personal and professional brand based on your strengths and aspirations.

3. Mastery of Relationships: Cultivate strong, meaningful relationships both within and outside your organization. Networking isn't just about numbers; it's about genuine connections.

4. Seek Out Challenging Opportunities: Growth comes from stepping out of your comfort zone. Volunteer for challenging projects and demonstrate your capability.

5. Feedback is Gold: Regularly solicit feedback and act on it. Constructive criticism is a ladder to your next big achievement.

6. Be Strategically Visible: It's essential not just to work hard but also to ensure your efforts are recognized. Find ways to showcase your achievements without bragging.

7. Liking Your Life: Harmony is the key. While advancing in your career, ensure you also prioritize personal well-being and happiness.

These insights are from the book "Rise: 3 Practical Steps for Advancing Your Career, Standing Out as a Leader, and Liking Your Life" by Patty Azzarello, and brought to you by Omar's Desk. Embrace these principles to not only advance your career but also enjoy the journey along the way.
