Visibility aspect @ Work

I have seen instances where being visible helped people grow but I personally don’t believe in ‘Being centre of Attraction or Acting smart in front of senior management’ is a way to promote you.

People must be evaluated based on their achievements not based on their visibility. But sometimes it’s the other way. Skills will help you work anywhere. Visibility helps you sustain your current role.

Visibility by itself is a talent. Ability to convince and create perception is a talent. It’s the responsibility of the manager to differentiate visibility vs ability. People who contribute to the organization are as important as people who represent the organization. End of you day you need to be satisfied with your work. This alone can give you satisfaction.
