HURDLE:

I do not think I have a positive reputation in my organization.

SUGGESTIONS:

  • 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.
