Strategy 3: Stand Out. Be Heard.

Attract Luck and Get Known for Your ‘Unique Genius’

Earn the respect, trust and confidence of others

Master the ongoing art and science of emotional intelligence, facilitative leadership, and effectively working horizontally.


“It’s not WHAT you know or WHO you know.
It’s who knows YOU and what you do WELL.”

Standing out and being heard so that it evokes a positive emotional response in others is a well honed skill and art that needs to be adapted for each situation and individual – your boss, peers, team members, internal stakeholders, external alliances, direct reports.

Proven success strategies include consistently creating win-win-win outcomes for the company, your boss, and you, as well as building a supportive and high value peer and mentor advisory team. 

HOW you get known is unique to you.  Do you enjoy volunteering in a leadership role, writing for industry publications, building an active social media network or public speaking?

Bottom-line, leaders who experience the freedom of sustainable success develop a lifestyle that continually positions them for new and challenging opportunities through the hidden job market – internal and external. 

Leaders who attract LUCK would advise you to . . .

  1. Get known as an ‘expert’ by a wide range of groups.
  2. Consistently nurture your social capital in an authentic and generous way.
  3. Leverage your talents to give back and contribute.
  4. Work horizontally and take time to become more visible in a way that is of service.
