If you want to be seen as a superstar, start playing the role. The strategy: volunteer for a new leadership position, especially one you may be underqualified for, says career coach Dr Gina Bellavia. “It’s like giving yourself that extra push and saying, ‘I can do this’,” she says. You’ll learn new skills and maybe excel in your new position. If you fail, you’ll be more ready next time.
