The best thing to do is to start developing skills so that you’re ready when a management job opens up, either at your organization or somewhere else.
Talk to your boss about some of these options:
- Build skills that interest you or help you grow. Is it time for a workshop or on-the-job training?
- Take on new challenges, such as projects or assignments where you can use or develop skills you value.
- Ask for a lateral move to a job that can increase your skills and knowledge.
- Redesign your job so you can do more of the work you find satisfying. You may be able to trade less satisfying tasks with co-workers.
