Are you struggling to put words to your achievements or even claim them? You are not alone.
However, being cautious or unable to articulate your skills and experience incurs costs throughout your career especially when pursuing a promotion or a new job.
Sally Helgesen & Marshall Goldsmith in their book, How Women Rise: Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back From your Next Raise, Promotion, or Job recommend considering yourself as a product.
What are your most notable achievements that make you a trustworthy and likable product that people will want to buy? If you don’t know, spend a morning reflecting or journaling on the idea.
Once you have some thoughts, say them out loud to yourself with confidence, then to a couple friends or colleagues and so on.
Take time to believe in yourself! Do the work to proclaim your successes to propel your career forward.
