At work, I’m seeing more and more people shape their reputation and take control of their careers. Some are learning how to do it via formal training. Many more, though, are simply making the most of our new social collaboration platform.
Over time, I’m starting to see patterns emerge. The most common one is people becoming recognized as experts based on public evidence of their knowledge (as opposed to, say, based on their corporate title).
All of these experts, it turns out, do 3 seemingly simple things.
1. Work out loud
The first thing they do is use the firm’s collaboration platform to make their work visible.
