Has anyone ever given you a compliment that you’ve downplayed or shrugged off as being insignificant or ‘not a big deal’? Maybe you’ve achieved a new level of success or had a big win and then just moved on to the next thing without taking in the magnitude of what YOU did.
Permission for a healthy dose of tough love…
If you want more recognition from others, it’s important to start recognizing yourself more. This serves two purposes. First, progress boosts confidence, momentum and motivation. In order to capitalize on this, it’s important to pause and party! Be sure to celebrate the process and not just the ‘W’s’. For example, you made 3 phone calls to key stakeholders or if you practiced relentlessly for an upcoming presentation. Of course, if you got that raise, promotion or kudos, schedule in a way to celebrate that as well! Don’t forget to plan that ‘pause and party’!
Second, share with others what you’re passionate about and what you’ve done! How can others recognize you more if they do not know what you’re up to or the amount of time, work and effort that went into what it took to get there?
Don’t want to sound like you’re bragging?
Think again! Who else is missing out by not knowing what your blackbelt is and what you’re willing to do to be world-class?
Third, ask for the recognition you want. Many times it may just be a lack of awareness that others are not recognizing your or your team’s efforts. Be sure to be clear on the recognition, cadence, and form of recognition you’d like (verbal, written, compensation etc.)
The first step to more recognition though is for you to hone it and own it! You’ll build confidence, and others will have more awareness to give you the praise you want and deserve.
Cheering you on always.

Do you feel like everything is catching up with you?
Overwhelmed by your current schedule and possibly underwhelmed by the progress you’re making on initiatives that matter to you?
It’s definitely that time of year, and you are not alone. The good news is that you can have a "mini intervention" with yourself, your schedule, and the impact you’re having, so you can feel less overwhelmed and more in control and on purpose. You’ll likely be more fun to be around too:)
This "Get to Know Yourself" questionnaire will help you next-level your understanding of who you are and what’s important to you. You’ll be looking from a perspective that may be unfamiliar, but this can be a catalyst to ignite momentum and inspire consistent action.
