“Nobody’s a natural. You work hard to get good and then work to get better.”

~ Paul Coffey

You’ve always been a star worker—respected by your peers and looked up to by your employees. Using your quick wits and technical skills, rising up the ranks was smooth sailing until you moved to a larger firm.

Then the recognition stopped.

You took on the responsibility with zeal and excitement, awaiting the same recognition and esteem—only to find that you’re now surrounded by other star workers, each with their own unique skill set and talents, and you find it hard to stand out from your peers.

The star status that seemed effortless at one time seems to be getting harder and harder to achieve with the tougher competition. You strive to get noticed as you see others shining in the limelight of success. You might even witness someone else taking credit for your hard work.

But you’re not alone.

If you identify with the above, you’re in good company. As an executive coach, I see this happen all the time. Clients come to me feeling confused about how they should tackle this difficult adjustment and what steps they should take to up their game.

Take action to get noticed.
