On July 12, 1954, Dean Campbell, a 27 year old Topeka man, began Campbell Personnel Services. Two years later, Keith Bossler joined the agency as a partner and the agency changed its name to Campbell-Bossler Personnel Service. Bossler became sole proprietor of the agency in 1963 and changed its name to Bossler & Associates. In 1964, Lanny Brown joined the agency as personnel consultant. Brown, an industrial psychology graduate from Kansas State, rose through the ranks, and the agency changed its name again, to Bossler Brown & Associates, with the promotion of Lanny Brown to full partner.

What makes someone promotable?       

Here are seven attributes of highly promotable people:   

   •Doers, not talkers. No drama or excuses, just results. Their actions and results do the talking for them.     

   •Solvers, not excuse-makers. Promotable people see a problem, look for causes and take actions to solve the problem. You'll hear them approach their supervisor and say, "I noticed a problem with X, so I've tried a couple of things and found something that seems to work," and then explain what they did and how the results have benefited the customer, department or company.                 

   •Selfless, not selfish. They look for opportunities to lend a hand to others. No job is beneath them.     

   •Respectful, not inconsiderate. Promotable people respect everyone, regardless of what they do or where they came from. They place others first.     

   •Outward focused, not self-focused. Promotable people look beyond the task, job description and department — they think about the big picture and how their behavior affects others.     

   •Givers, not takers. Promotable people set a personal example to give more than what is asked or expected. They don't do personal business on company time, which includes taking calls, texting, personal emails, gaming and any other form of personal amusement while they are on the clock.     

   •Integrity and trust, not questionable motives. They set a personal example of integrity that is bulletproof. Because they are givers (not takers), selfless (not self-focused) and solvers (not excuse-makers) they have developed an ironclad reputation within and outside the employer.       

When people commit to promotable behavior and live it out on the job, they don’t have to worry about their career hitting a snag, or being able to get the best jobs with the best employers.
