If the next rung on your corporate ladder belongs to your boss, you’re probably not going to get promoted until your boss does, and Wired’s How To Wiki details how to secure this kind of promotion.

In a nutshell, it’s a two-step process:

1) Learn your boss’s job, and

2) Train your replacement.

If you give your boss the opportunity to look good by helping him/her do a better job, your boss is more likely to get a promotion, which frees up your prospective job. If you’ve already been grooming a replacement, who better to slip into your boss’s position than you?
