Day 236 | Do You Know Your Workplace Reputation?

Day 236 | Do You Know Your Workplace Reputation?

Today is career advice day! I share this message with people quite often. If you have been overlooked for a promotion more than once, odds are, there’s something you are not being told about your reputation (i.e., how you are perceived in the workplace). If you are interested in finally getting that promotion, it is possible, but a couple of things must change. First, you need to learn how “decision makers” and leaders in the workplace perceive you. Get this feedback from someone who will tell you the truth and only from someone who has a “seat at the table.” They do not necessarily need to be a decision maker, but they must be present when the decision makers are discussing performance. Next connect yourself to a decision maker (can be same one or someone different) and inform them that you are making some changes to prepare yourself so that when the next opportunity becomes available, you are seen as a viable candidate to consider. Invite this person to informally observe you and to provide you feedback as you are working to shift your reputation or perception in the workplace. Keep the dialogue going with them and “course correct” as needed along the way. Before you know it, leaders’ perceptions of you will shift and you will be on to the next best job in no time. Good luck to you.
