One of the best ways to earn a good reputation inside and outside your organization is to offer help to your colleagues and not expect anything in return. Advantages of this strategy –

  1. Your reputation starts spreading
  2. They owe you a favour
  3. They will come back to you for more, and hence you become indispensable.
  4. You learn more as you help others.
  5. You experience fulfilment because you contributed.

Homework for you would be –

On Monday, find someone who is fairly nice and open and ask him, “Hey! What’s up?”

“What are your current challenges? Is there any way in which I could help?”

Let me know how this works out for you. 😉
