Thank you for taking the Reputation Score Quiz. Well done! From your score, it appears you are aware of the power of your reputation and you’re making some good decisions to increase your value. The next step is to discover how you can build your reputation strategically so that you attract more opportunities. Here’s some tips to get you started:
Responsible

Building a responsible reputation is an area you would benefit from focusing on. When you purposefully take responsibility for your reputation you will attract more like minded and like valued people to you, increase your visibility and opportunities.

Here are my top 3 recommendations to gain clarity on the Responsible element of reputation:

  1. A consistent approach to what you say and do
  2. Where and how you want to show up (and why)
  3. Your personal and business values and how you live them
Ethics

Being known for doing the right thing will give you a significant advantage in building your reputation with people who are key to the growth of your career or business. Your score shows your reputation would benefit by focusing on developing the ethical element of your reputation. When people understand your ethics you’ll increase opportunities for collaboration and more responsibility as people rely on you to make decisions and take responsible actions.

Here are my top 3 recommendations for developing the ethical element of reputation:

  1. Be clear about your values and support them with action
  2. Hold yourself accountable for your ethics
  3. Consistently use your ethics as your guide to making decisions
Prepared

Being prepared to respond to clients, meetings, opportunities, media, crisis is essential in building and maintaining a good reputation. Your score indicates you would benefit from paying a bit more attention to Preparation so that you increase your response time, anticipate needs, ask insightful questions and always achieve what you want from the opportunity.

Here are my top 3 recommendations for preparing to be well-prepared:

  1. Always know why you’re there! Whether it’s a meeting, a networking opportunity, an interview – whatever the occasion – always know what will make it successful for you.
  2. Plan! For some people, planning makes them want to run for the hills. Come back! Opportunities are increased by planning and so is your confidence. Risk is decreased.
  3. Always know your audience and flex your style to fit. That means do a bit of research into who you’re meeting, writing for or showing up to.
Trust

Trust takes a while to build and is the cornerstone of reputation. It’s a key component of any healthy relationship. Your score indicates you’d benefit for some extra focus on the Trust element of reputation. When trust in you is high, opportunities will increase along with referrals for your expertise.

Here are my top 3 recommendations for building trust:

  1. Do what you say you’re going to do and honour your commitments
  2. Be truthful, honest – and kind – even when it’s tough
  3. Listen actively – quiet your mind. Avoid thinking of your questions and just be present
Opportunity

Your reputation will improve when you are clear about the opportunities you are looking for and how they support your reputation. It’s easy to respond quickly to every opportunity when you’re clear about the fit with your career or business. Your responsiveness will increase your visibility and trust. Your quiz score tells me your reputation would benefit from focusing on the opportunity element of reputation.

Here are my top 3 recommendations for increasing opportunities:

  1. Be clear about what opportunities you want to attract and why
  2. Know what success looks like for that opportunity
  3. Communicate clearly about opportunities you are interested in to people who can help

People will want to work with you because they will know where they stand with you. Your trust factor will increase along with your knowledge and reputation.

Your reputation score shows your reputation would grow by focusing more on the nurture element of reputation.
