Become Your Personal Best

Great advice from Roz Usheroff - Leadership, Image, Etiquette and Branding Specialist

In these challenging times, your success will depend on the attitude you choose daily and how you decide to embrace change. The success you experience in your career will depend on the choices you make every day. You don’t get to vote on how you are perceived. How others see you is their reality, no matter what you might have intended. Although we judge ourselves by our intentions, we often misjudge others by our own perceptions of their behaviors. How others respond to you as a team member will depend entirely on their experience of you.

Below are some strategies to help you demonstrate the kind of personal leadership that will serve you in your career.

-Take ownership of others’ perceptions of you
-Don’t stretch yourself too thin
-Keep your eye on the road
-Manage your reputation by choosing a positive disposition
-Show that you care
-Become a champion of others
-Adopt an attitude of service
-Find meaning in what you do every day

I know I have a long way to go, but I am sold on the power of teamwork and the power of human kindness. As my mother often says, you get out what you put in. So give unconditionally. Miracles do happen. Go Roz!
