Learn how to brag. Think about one of your most recent achievements and share it with your boss or another senior executive. The point here is that you are taking credit for something that you accomplished. This is one time that you don’t need to focus on the team’s effort, you need to get comfortable bragging if you want to be successful.

You have to toot your own horn…who else will. Bosses tend to only notice the bad not the good!

I am horrible at bragging. I don’t know how to do it. This is why I didn’t go into business or sales, haha. I’ll stick with education! 🙂

I am not into bragging. I think it’s an ugly human trait which is not necessarily. With bragging you just attract jealousy and that’s not necessary. However bragging to the boss has proved to be useful. 😉

I also have a fear of looking like a snob when I talk about my small achievements. I’m not sure how to ( or if i should) overcome this but it’s a struggle!

Even my engagement with a client has ended, still many prospective clients’ of their still look for my opinion on their services, because they say “we trust your recommendations”

My kind of little brag 🙂

I was able to get some more planning down for my event at the library. Hoping everything goes smoothly.

I’ve never really liked to brag to people who are above me, and sometimes I don’t even like bragging to my friends. I just don’t want to seem snobby! I’m trying to work on balancing it though so it doesn’t seem that way.

Ha!! Learn how to brag. I love it. I thought that came naturally for people, but some do shy away from it especially in business settings.

I do think it’s important to take credit for your accomplishments. If you don’t, who will? Very good point you have made!
