In continuing to look at some suggestions for overcoming hurdles people face when managing their reputations:
I do not think I have a positive reputation in my organization.
- Partner with your manager or your Human Resources business partner on ways in which you can improve your reputation at work.
- Read a book (e.g., How to Build Your Reputation by Rob Brown) or an article about reputation management.
- Identify a colleague whom you believe does have a positive reputation. Schedule a time with her to talk about your efforts to improve your reputation and ideas she may have on how to do so.
- Craft a new reputation statement and begin to focus on your attitude, behaviors, and production. It is never too late to build a good reputation.
