And, in times of uncertainty, it’s easy for leaders to “lay low” in the spirit of not creating panic, raising issues or having to face tough questions where they may not have all the answers. But, in the absence of information, employees are likely to make it up.

Tip of the Month

You don’t manage your career in a vacuum. You are connected. You meet, you email, you Tweet™, you Skype™, you’re LinkedIn™, you text and call colleagues, clients, mentors and managers. And it used to be the only person that mattered was your boss. Not true anymore. Find out how others see you – ask, and ask often, what is my brand, my reputation?

ReputationCompare their view with your own for a truer sense of self. A broad, accurate self-image can help you set more realistic and reachable career goals. 



What Others Are Saying

“I once feared feedback, but now I look forward to it. I have started asking for feedback from a great boss who is helping me understand how I am viewed by others. The feedback is helping me improve my personal brand and increase my value in the company.” – Biotech Researcher, CareerPower® Classic Workshop

“Talking about careers with my employees can be hard, so I love the idea that I don’t have to have all the answers, but what’s not negotiable is that I have all the questions.” – IT Manager, Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go
