[EP004] Q&A Episode: How Can I Get Noticed and Rewarded for the Great Work That I Do?

This is the first Q&A Episode for The Leadership Pod. The question for this episode is, “How Can I Get Noticed and Rewarded for the Great Work That I Do?”. This question came to me from one of my Udemy students.

Being overlooked, feeling under-appreciated, working harder and longer than everybody else but getting no reward for it, is a common issue for many emerging leaders. So I knew that this would be the perfect issue to talk about in the first Q&A episode.

In this episode,I first take a deeper look at this common issue for emerging leaders, then give some solutions you can try, and then talk about what you can expect to happen when you solve this issue at work.

I hope this episode is going to be helpful for you. If you’ve ever felt overlooked for the hard work that you do in the office, you’ll get a lot out of this episode!

In this episode, I discuss:

  • An important mindset shift you need to make when you transition from junior to senior level in a company.
  • How your people skill will help you get noticed and rewarded.
  • How to talk about what you’ve achieved in your team meetings to help others see your contribution.
  • How to have a one-on-one with your boss so they know, and cannot deny, the hard work you’ve been putting in.
  • How to approach this issue in your performance evaluations.
  • How taking action makes you feel that you’re more in control of your job and life!
  • How assertive communication is the style of communication you need to have these types of conversations.
  • Information about the Assertive Communication Skills Masterclass on Udemy.
