I'm hoping I can get some help here. I have been with Company A for 3 years and hired as a manager. I have been put on projects with directors that have a ton of other workload, so I've been taking on the responsibilites of my work and the directors' work on the projects. Four roles have been filled within my department and have been hired as senior manager (with less experience than me). Prior, I've applied for a director position and I immediately received negative feedback from my boss saying I did not have the experience and that I must go through a senior manager role before I move to director. So whats the best way of getting promoted to senior manager. My boss recognizes the additional workload that I've taken on that go beyond my normal responsibilities. Should I ask for a promotion to senior manager position? We meet on a weekly basis. If so, whats the best approach? Any feedback is appreciated.
