Your Reputation Always Walks Ahead Of You
What others say about you carries more weight than what you say about yourself. There is nothing so powerful as a positive reputation and the recommendations that it brings. It travels fast and always walks ahead of you. It must stand up for you when you’re not there, important decisions are made, and it will do the job before you arrive. It might be time to get to know what it looks like and how you can grow and expand it. A vast majority lack this crucial knowledge.
Your reputation is the most critical part that you bring from one deal to the next, from project to project and how you act is always the multiplier. Having an excellent reputation is the golden key that opens doors to exciting people and companies that you want to do business with or learn from them.
Each time that I give feedback on someone’s professional reputation through their Reputation Resumé, I see the tremendous positive impact that it has. Typically it takes about a week or two to get it into your mind and body to accept the strengths, and then something powerful happens. Suddenly you get the courage and tools to pursue the goals that you are aiming to achieve over time. You will act on your strengths and also get the possibility to handle the bugs/weaknesses that might hinder your success. Regardless of age, regardless of position, or the business we’re in, we need to understand the importance and power of reputation. Your success is dependent on it.
Today we’re looking for attitudes, the soft skills and those unique qualities that create results and potential.
Reid Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn, wrote in his book “The Start-up of You” that those skills are hard to tally, but there is an obvious solution. Knowing your reputation through your Reputation Resumé will get you a 100% accurate description of those unique qualities.
