YOUR WORK PRECEDES YOU

People are talking about you at work. They’re talking about what kind of person you are. They’re talking about what you do, how you do it and what they think of it. They’re talking about what you’re good at and not. They’re talking about what you do better and worse than everyone else. They’re talking about what sets you apart and doesn’t. They’re talking about whether you’re trusted or not, and by whom. They’re talking about your potential and why you have or haven’t been able to live up to it yet. They’re talking about how you show up and what you say. They’re talking about what other people say about you.

One thing they aren’t talking about: how many networking events they’ve seen you at.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
