If You Have Been Appreciated, Ask People to Speak Up on Your Behalf
If you are an awesome worker with a mile-long success list; chances are that your colleagues, counterparts or clients appreciate your work. The next time someone shows you their appreciation, as them to put it in writing to your immediate senior. This way, your boss will always know that you are a star performer.
Reclaim Your Territory Without a War
There might be times when people (read colleagues) take your ideas and turn them into their own, especially in front of the boss. Don’t claim the idea for your own for that will not help your case – instead, present more data and all the research that your colleague wasn’t able to steal from you and turn the spotlight back on you, cleverly.
Make Sure You Are Put in the Spotlight
The next time you are given an opportunity to present in front of the manager or the big boss, research your points as well as you can and try your best to make an impression. Go well-informed and armed with all the answers beforehand – shine in the time you have, the boss shall remember you in good grace, as will the head honchos.
Word Your Achievements Right
The next time your immediate supervisor wants to know how you spent your week, don’t just list out what you did. Word it differently, to show how you worked for the company’s benefit, and what you have to show for it. For instance, if you reached out to 15 of your clients with a fresh offer – talk about how the clients are responding to it instead of just talking about your e-mail.
