Signature PVI Model – Perception, Visibility, and Influence
Joel’s signature PVI model – perception, visibility, and influence will help you achieve career advancement and work promotion. By learning how to develop and leverage these three components of success to your fullest advantage, you’ll soar ahead of the competition.
Why employers don’t always reward the best talent
You know what it’s like to be passed up for work romotions despite your hard work, knowledge, and experience. You feel like others, less deserving, move up the corporate ladder faster than you. Why does this happen? Why do some employees quickly move ahead, while other good employees seem to be stuck where they’re at? The answer–they didn’t use perception, visibility and influence (PVI) to their advantage.
Don’t let your work speak for itself
To illustrate the importance of the PVI model, consider this common situation: Two coworkers in similar jobs have the same skillset. However, one rises quickly through the ranks while the other never gets promoted. Why? One knows how to use PVI, while the other believes his or her work should speak for itself.
What’s inside the Getting Ahead book?
In this book that benefits executives and employees, Joel summarizes four key strategies you should immediately start implementing to get ahead in your career, achieve the career advancement you deserve, and the work promotions you desire. This book includes:
Know the four steps to managing others’ perception of you.
Joel shares an easy process for determining how colleagues perceive you and working to shift any negative perceptions. Through skillful personal branding, you can ensure others see you as a capable leader.
Learn a simple formula that will turn you into a master influencer.
Determine what your superiors need, then provide it. Cultivate strong, mutually beneficial relationships with coworkers, while mentoring subordinates and motivating them to higher levels of productivity.
Increase your visibility by recruiting personal advocates who will shine a spotlight on your great work.
Learn how to make yourself memorable, getting noticed by the people who determine who gets ahead. As they advocate for your success, you’ll find new doors opening all around you. This is a key step to career advancement.
Get over your fear of the limelight.
Stand out at work by speaking up. If you’re introverted, learn strategies that will allow your abilities to shine. Excel at interpersonal communication so others will gravitate toward you, wanting to be included in the projects you believe in.
Showing up for work and fulfilling your obligations just doesn’t cut it anymore—not if you want the work promotion or raise you deserve. Being intelligent and capable won’t get you to where you want to go. But when you begin leveraging the PVI model, outlined in the getting ahead book, you’ll find yourself climbing up the corporate ladder and enjoying a fulfilling career.
