Today, there is a lot of emphasis on personal networking and developing the right relationships. Rightly so, as this is all part of developing your own personal brand. In this blog I thought it may be worth considering some personal brand development tactics, designed to manage the way others see you in the workplace.
Our challenge in the work place is that we not only want a reputation of being approachable, we want to be known as someone who can get things done. This way we appeal to colleagues and managers alike, and enhance our career prospects. Traditionally you probably know people that are good at one or the other of these. They are either really cool and supportive to work with, or voraciously pushing for work to be completed, often alienating others. But there is middle ground where you can develop the Brand You as a ‘collaborative achiever’. Someone who makes sure things get done, through others.
