How to Make the Most Out of Your Days in the Ofﬁce
💪🏻 Another brief mention in the AFR today – this time on how to make the most out of your days in the ofﬁce.
Out of sight is out of mind – when you’re invisible people tend to forget you. If you’re hesitating on heading back to the office this article will give you some great tips.
Heading back to the office is a great opportunity to increase your visibility which in turn sends a signal to the powers that be on your willingness to be considered for more responsibility.
Choose your days wisely to ensure you are seen by the right people. Ensure you are visible in the office on at least one day per week when your boss and bosses boss are around – and be deliberate in ensuring that you either have a meeting with them, or you drop past their office so they both see you and engage with you.
Also consider your workload vs meeting schedule. Women are busy enough, we don’t need more to do. Possibly you’ll be able to get more done in the office and have more chances to “manufacture” those ad hoc corridor chats with decision makers on days when there are not so many back to back operational meetings.
