KarakaLEAD® your Reputation
They say, your REPUTATION is your biggest asset. Go ahead KarakaLEAD it!
Reputation is our topic for the upcoming month of April. It is in our actions, in our words, in our image. It is our “shadow”.
Otherwise described as our “character”, it is “us” described by others. Knowing this, we should all take control of it! Set the building blocks, and work on it consciously each day. Build your personal vision and your mission and go for it, give it your best.
Reputation, both for companies and individuals, is essential to success. Ever wonder what people discuss when you leave the room? What sort of an impression you left? Well, we never find that out. It is during first impressions or reoccurring conversations with people that we establish our reputation.
Good or bad, on the individual level, it is built based on our natural reactions and actions to situations. You can build a reputation that is excellent for an extended period of time, yet once it is broken, people tend to remember only that particular instance. It is very hard to repair. Whatever trait of character you want your reputation to be based on, integrate it with your everyday interactions.
When it comes to companies, both internal and external stakeholders influence every aspect of a company’s reputation. One of the risk measurement components and criteria for companies is reputation. Companies with long term visions and missions, care and invest in their reputation. Therefore, they should invest in employees who have a mindful engagement with the company’s vision and mission. Individuals who are committed to their long term career goals, highly regard their reputation both personally and professionally.
One’s reputation, just as our “shadow”, follows us wherever we go. So go ahead, KarakaLEAD it, lead it with character, so that if you fail or you succeed, you can be satisfied that you were in control, and were not walking in anyone else’s shadow.
KarakaLEAD your Reputation, and let your reputable light shine.
