Do you know who you are?

Do you know who you are?

One of the well known strategies that you can use to up-level your career is the ability to self promote. It is about shifting your perspective from viewing self promotion as bragging and therefore undesirable to providing an accurate description of your capability to those with whom you interact with, so they can make appropriate decisions where you are concerned.

You can’t self promote if you have not yet embodied what you are good at. You can be excellent at something but if you don’t really own the knowledge of your excellence, you can’t reap the benefits of your talents. This doesn’t preclude others from exploiting those talents for their own benefit without compensating you accordingly.

So the question is; how do you learn to own your brilliance? Well it starts by catching yourself in your moments of brilliance and acknowledging it for what it is. Not minimising it. When I started being intentional about this, which is what I advise my coaching my client to, I started really listening and taking in compliments. Which can be really uncomfortable when you are not used to seeing yourself.
