Promoting Hard Work

May 13, 2010 at 10:10 am 1 comment

cogEach  month, the Anita Borg Institute invites Jo Miller, CEO of Women’s Leadership Coaching Inc., to give career advice and answer questions on leadership.  This month’s Ask Jo is entitled, What’s Wrong with Working Hard?

In her response, Jo Miller discusses the importance of promoting your work and not just keeping your head down as you work hard.  Communicate your work. She quotes Ruth Porat, CFO for Morgan Stanley, “One of the biggest problems women have is they work really hard and put their heads down and assume hard work gets noticed.”

She inspires the thought that we should not be shy about marketing our ideas and work, whether individual professors or an ADVANCE program office.  We shouldn’t assume others will notice each accomplishment.  With all the media and information buzzing around out there (in our offices, across campus, and online), a little promotion is necessary and counts as work.  What’s your experience been?
