As I mentioned in a previous blog, I was reading the Gigster Blog the other day and this quotation stayed in my mind for several reasons.
“There are many types of currency in Silicon Valley. Money, talent and media attention all matter but by far the most important asset you can build is your reputation.”
It’s profound and it’s not only valid in Silicon Valley, it’s a fact for everyone, everywhere whatever position that you hold. Reputation Mastery™ means mapping and exploring it and having a total awareness of the contents of your reputation, realizing what expectations is sets for the future.
If your knowledge of your own reputation is a bit blurry the consequence is that the expectations of what you can accomplish will also be blurry or even low. It’s time to take control.
