Spreading the Word About Your Wins

Stephanie Overby makes a good point in her new story in CIO magazine, “Self-Promotion: Learning the Right Way to Brag.” “When someone essentially invites you to brag—‘What’s new? How’s everyone in IT?’” she says, “responding with a laundry list of accomplishments won’t work.” Yes, in fact, that’s one way to get labeled a bore! Instead, she adds, “Prepare for such moments by first compiling a list of accomplishments: recent successes, obstacles overcome, compliments from a client or colleague. Update the list often so it stays current.” And of course, make it timely and relevant to your conversation partners. Overby interviewed me and Peggy Klaus, author of BRAG! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It, for her story.
