A common question from folks who have read my new book Raise Your Visibility & Value: Uncover the Lost Art of Connecting on the Job has to do with ways to be visible.
While I provide dozens of ideas on how to be more visible in your organization and industry through the seven visibility accelerators, the ways you can be more visible in your own organization and industry varies dramatically.
The ways a pharmaceutical engineer, a lawyer, and a marketing leader can be visible in their organizations and industry will vary greatly based on the culture of their organization and the maturity of their industry. Some cultures may welcome your efforts to be more visible while others may frown upon it. Some industries are young and some are seasoned. The ways to be visible in these differing industries will vary.
There are endless ways to be more visible in your organization and industry. Take a few moments to think about what will work. Find a colleague you can work with to generate ideas. Ask folks what they are doing or have done in the past. At the end of the day, the first step to being more visible is to identify ways that will work for you.
