- Working your stockings off and still not getting noticed?
- Watching your colleagues’ career accelerate while yours stagnates?
- Need strategies to move forward in your career?
This could be because:
- Messages you were told as a little girl about being good and not standing out are holding you back
- You don’t recognise your unique qualities and skills and instead take them for granted
- You think people will know how good you are without you telling them
Your potential: clients, colleagues, suppliers, bosses are unlikely to recognise how good you are without you bringing it to their attention. Working hard isn’t enough, you need to do a good job and spend the rest of the time bringing it to others attention.
However perhaps you’re not quite at the point of being able to speak about yourself in bold terms, or perhaps it doesn’t quite fit with your character or feel appropriate.
Jenny Garrett, sought after executive coach and author of ‘Rocking Your Role’, is also offering a free pre recorded webinar on Getting noticed positively at work to We are the City members and shares five fantastic ways to tell people how fabulous you are without having to actually say a word below:
Ask for a 360 degree feedback questionnaire, so that your boss, colleagues, customers and suppliers can spend time thinking about their experience of you. You can then quote what was said about you in your next appraisal or even before.
2. Maximise your exposure through social media
LinkedIn is fantastic to share projects that they you are working on and get endorsements or full-blown testimonials for anyone in the world to see. All you have to do is ask.
3. Elevate your credibility through writing articles
Demonstrate your expertise through writing articles; you could find out if there are publications that those in your sector regularly read that you could contribute to. This will give your credibility and you can send copies of articles to potential clients or mention them on your CV.
Ask colleagues to catch you in action, doing whatever it is that you do best; delivering an important presentation is always a good opportunity. Post your videos to the Internet for all to see or just selectively email those that you want to influence.
5. Help others to help you
Seek out a sponsor or two, someone more senior than your boss who will recommend and stand up for you to others. Someone who is aware of how good you are, and, who will sell your skills when it counts.
