Early on in your career, you may struggle to be viewed as a leader by more experienced co-workers. Thankfully, there are smart ways for greener employees to establish themselves as leaders at work while building trusting, respectful relationships with more seasoned colleagues.
Pick a project that needs to happen but which no one has put their hand up for yet. Choose something that you are uniquely positioned to do well on and get approval from senior stakeholders to do the work. With the changes Covid-19 has brought to the workplace, greener employees have a lot to contribute. They know how to work in this new world and could teach others. – Sandra Oliver, Impact-Coaches Inc.
