Below is a powerful 6-step blueprint that anyone can easily apply to find great success in their work, career, and life. Give these 6 steps a try and see how they work for you. These steps are part of our commitment to helping you identify your path to business success.
1. Own your own brand
You are your brand, and people respond to it–both good and bad. Make sure your brand projects the person you really are, and own it in every way. You can do this in your face-to-face interactions, on paper, and online.
2. Prioritize relationships
Life, career, and business is all about building relationships with other people. Find mentors who can show you the ropes and open doors for you, and earn sponsors by working hard and working smart. Make building a strong, diverse, and lasting network of relationships a priority in your work and personal life.
3. Declare specific goals
Everyone needs goals in their life, whether you want a raise, to start a successful new business, or stress less over the small stuff. Once you have a goal picked out, declare it to yourself and to others, then work backwards to understand the path you’ll need to follow to achieve it.
4. Get more experience
The more experience you have in a particular subject or business area, the more valuable you are to your current employer, and to prospective employers. Keep learning to keep earning.
5. Develop executive presence
Do you know why top leaders and executives are seen by others to be leaders–they have the kind of executive presence that people who work for them respond to. Work on developing executive presence–being the kind of leader that other people want to follow.
6. Feedback: Ask for it and share it
Feedback is the breakfast of champions. Only through feedback can you improve and get better. If you’re not getting feedback, ask for it. If you’re getting feedback, use it to change and improve for the better.
