Book Description

11,000 Words

While we often talk about having one, monolithic, Reputation – with a capital R -- I believe that there are a series of reputations that combine to create the whole. It is often said you can't "do" projects, you can only do the individual tasks that make up the project. The same can be said for reputation. You don't build your reputation as a whole, you cultivate the smaller reputations that create it. Each individual action builds your reputation in unique ways and each requires some thought as to how they relate to the whole. Cultivating Your Career Reputations examines each of these reputations in detail and helps you find specific areas where you can improve your work, your actions and your thoughts so that your overall professional reputation can grow

Why break your Reputation down into its constituent parts? It is often said that you can't "do" projects, you can only do the individual tasks that make up the project and achieve the desired result. The same can be said for reputation. You don't build your reputation as a whole, you cultivate the smaller reputations that create it. Each individual action builds your reputation in unique ways and each requires some thought as to how they relate to the whole.

Cultivating Your Career Reputations

This e-book is an easy read: clear, concise and solid in its direction. The "Reputations" are essential parts of life that can and will enhance a career if handled properly, or tank a career if handled poorly. Douglas's advice, culled from his many years of experience as an employee, independent contractor, and business owner, helps to focus you as an employer, employee, or as an essential part of any team.

In the "Introduction", Douglas posits:

"All of these smaller reputations, and more, make up your 'Reputation' with a capital 'R'. Each can raise or lower people's opinion of you and directly effect your ability to succeed in your career. They also point the way when building a career or finding the next job."

Douglas paints comparisons and contrasts on why these Reputations are critical, and the result of a lack of attention to honoring and building these Reputations. In the chapter, "A Reputation for Decision-Making" Douglas presents the stark consequences of failing to make decisions:

"The biggest danger in avoiding decisions is that your managers and your family will eventually start making decisions for you. They will refuse to have their productivity stunted by your lack of decision. Even worse, when you fail to make decisions, you will often be saddled with decisions you dislike."

Entrepreneurs and independent contractors will greatly benefit from this book, as symbiotic relationships are the glue to bring a product to market, or deliver a service.
