founder of naked leader
Time to Read: 40 seconds
How to be recognised for the work you do without shouting about it – in Royal Flush order….
Ace – Get known in your organisation as being an obvious expert in something so you become the go too person in that area – do not brag – just make it obvious – e.g. project leadership.
King – Make a list of the most powerful and influential people in the organisation – remember PAs are more powerful than the Executives they support. Ask for their “help, advice and guidance”– people love to be asked for their advice – thank them for it and when you complete your work say “I couldn’t have done it without (name).”
Queen – Building on that last point take the blame for everything and the credit for nothing (this sounds counter intuitive – it works).
Jack – Get your Customers and Clients talking about and acknowledging the good work that you do – and when they do, say thank you and
Ten – Contribute in meetings, projects and at every opportunity – be clear, concise and compelling.
With my love and best wishes
