One brainy, effective method to gain respect within your organization is to build up your profile in the outside world. These approaches can help:
1. Start a blog in which you discuss industry or professional trends. You can download Blogger software at www.blogger.com. Caveat: Avoid legal missteps by not writing about your specific workplace or co-workers.
2. Volunteer to lead a workshop or seminar at an admin conference. Often, local branches of professional organizations are looking for creative, educational ideas from people with expertise. Do you have a way with words? Lead a business correspondence workshop. Know a lot about design software? Offer to do a software demo.
3. Submit articles or editorials to local or trade publications. Media sources are always in need of articles with catchy angles. If you’re an articulate writer with a specific viewpoint, you have a good shot at having a letter or article published.
