Do you really want to be different from the majority? If so, here are a few hints that could set you apart in a positive way.
Interject New Ideas: Do this everywhere, in every medium, at every opportunity. Never directly negate an idea that others have raised or introduced, just expand it or morph it into another form that you created. For example: When a recruiter says that the job requires a self-starter, explain that you are more than a self starter, you’re a stimulator of groups and teams when you share your vision, passion and energy with them.
Focus on Having Impact: Always link your ideas, comments and actions to the value and benefit they create for the business or group of which you are a member. For example: Yes, the initial savings from the project was $20,000 and since we built it into the way work gets done daily, it continues to reduce cost by approximately 5% on average per month.
Expand the Pie: Think big, present ideas and possibilities that make the pie bigger, so everybody benefits. For example: Versus all these one-to-ones we schedule with clients, let’s schedule a client forum where we can ask them to help us better serve them. Then we can gather their ideas and use all of them to increase our share of their business.
These three ideas alone will cause you to be noticed and respected as an expansive ideator and possibility person. Try them and add new ideas for attracting positive attention. These are just your first three ideas, how about you send us five more?
