What to Do If You Think You Don’t Have a Positive Reputation

While the importance of a good reputation is not new, the environment in which you are working to build a good reputation is. Here are some suggestions for what to do if you think you may not have a positive reputation at work.

  • 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 you believe possesses a positive reputation. Schedule a time with her to talk about your efforts to improve your reputation. Ask her for her ideas on how to have a positive reputation.
  • Craft a new reputation statement and begin to focus on your attitude, behaviors, and production.
