It Matters What Leaders Do or Don’t Do!

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

Clean Up Your Reputation

Clean Sweep

Today I received the June addition of Success magazine, which is one of the tools that I use to cultivate my personal growth. Besides the magazine itself, I always look forward to the free CD, which you receive tucked away inside the magazine. Truthfully I am not really sure whether I am receiving the gift of a leadership CD with my magazine subscription o am I receiving a free magazine with my subscription to a leadership CD. Either way I am winning.

Back to the true point of this post which is a short article written by Jason Dorsey a keynote speaker known to represent the Gen Y generation. His insight is regarding our virtual reputation, which we can tarnish very easily in the social media data rich environment we find ourselves in.

With the web being an important source of information used by those considering us for job or business offers, we have to be aware of this digital reputation as well.

Jason offers the following steps to clean up this online reputation.

  1. Perform a name search on Google – Look at least the first two pages and images.
  2. Create new online content – If this is done persistently it will eventually replace references you would rather not share.
  3. On twitter let those you follow speak for you.
  4. On LinkedIn make sure you have your photo.
  5. Create a Google alert for your name – this will allow you to check why your name is coming up in searches.
  6. Change your Facebook profile picture.

You have now checked on what others see as your first impression or reputation.
