The easy way to show what you’re worth
Posted by Alec The Geek on 19 February 2008
“Ensure people know your value”
This often quoted phrase is rarley followed up with anything except generalisations. The easy way to show everyone how valuable you are is to write a simple weekly email for your manager (and anyone involved in your current projects). It should have four main headings:
- Issues for attention – anything that might need action by others or that poses a risk
- Progress since the last report
- Planned activity for the next report period
- Further information – Details or notes that don’t fit elsewhere (optional).
The secret is to keep this very brief, a series of one line bullet points is best. However you end up with paper audit trail of your working life and help make your boss’ life easier.
