(From the article): Trustworthy people express gratitude for the people who help them. They are confident in their abilities, but they also accept the fact that they would be nothing without the support of those who made their success possible.

John Michel's curator insight, May 7, 7:30 AM

How to build your reputation.
Barb Jemmott's insight:

One of the most powerful forms of influence, according to psychologist Robert Cialdini's famous analysis, is authority - often derived by perceived expertise. When you don't have outstanding credentials, how do you stand out?

donhornsby's curator insight, August 31, 9:19 AM

(From the article): Finally, the best antidote if you’re lacking an expert reputation now is to start creating one ASAP. Creating original contentis the single most effective way to develop an expert reputation. Though the best channel will vary (photographers and chefs should double down on Instagram, while it’s less helpful for attorneys and insurance brokers), blogging is a good betfor most professionals. In just an hour or two a week, you can begin to demonstrate how you think about the issues facing your field and sharing your unique point of view. Your content creation sparks a virtuous circle: because reporters looking for comment almost always start their articles with an online search, if your name keeps coming up as someone writing about the issues, they’re likely to contact you, reinforcing your expert reputation with third-party validation.

 

If you’re not yet considered an expert, it’s harder to get your ideas noticed — but not impossible. With these strategies, you can begin to overcome others’ resistance and make sure your voice is heard.
