Have you noticed people pay more for a Starbucks than a MDonald's coffee?
By my Cuban birthright, I'm a self-appointed coffee connoisseur and even I know it's the same coffee, but the two brands communicate their value differently.
It's exactly the same in the workplace. Knowing what value you bring to the table is one thing, communicating your value properly is another.
You should understand the language of value in your field and learn how to speak it - especially if you're in an unsupportive workplace since that'll create the opportunities and options that keep you feeling confident and empowered.
It's the reason I emphasize engaging and collaborating despite your bad boss. It's that deliberate engagement and collaboration that keeps your learning and growing even if your role is stagnant.
Eventually when you spot or create your next opportunity, you'll be ready.
