Advance Your Career Part 3: Are You Visible or Invisible, That Is The Question?
In order to get ahead and advance your career, you need to be visible. Being visible is more than just being seen. We can be seen and not noticed. When we are not noticed we are still invisible.
In order for our employer to notice us, we need to be seen, heard and taken seriously. We need to be visible. Visibility is all about IMPACT. Everyone makes an impact each time they meet someone, undertake a task, or work on a project. Do you know what kind of Impact you make? Is it positive? Are you memorable? Do you add value? Are you seen as an authority, a leader? Those are the people that get noticed and are given the opportunities to advance their career.
Did you ever notice that there are some people that just seem to be in the right place at the right time? If you think that is luck, you are wrong. They work hard to position themselves to make a positive impact. You can improve your impact and increase your chances of getting noticed by looking at a few key habits and behaviors. We have highlighted some of the habits and behaviors you should pay attention to in our Impact Quotient™. You can take the Impact Quotient™ here, see how you score and gain some insight into areas you can improve.
