World at Work episode 84 How to communicate recognition

“It’s important to say it. It’s also important to tell the story behind it.”

There is value in celebrating and communicating recognitions in both professional and personal settings. Too many people overlook their achievements or feel uncomfortable sharing them. However, recognizing your own value is crucial for growth and opportunity. Especially if you are looking for your next career opportunity. During this episode, Katie and I discuss how to communicate recognitions in a way that feels genuine and empowering.

Some highlights from our conversation include:

  • Own Your Success but Stay Humble: When sharing your recognitions, be sure to maintain humility. It’s not about bragging; it’s about demonstrating how your accomplishments add value. Use phrases like “I was recognized for…” instead of “I won…”
  • Incorporate Recognition into Your Resume: Don’t hesitate to include a section for recognitions on your resume. Clearly outline what you were recognized for and how it reflects your skills and contributions. This not only highlights your achievements but also tells a compelling story about your professional journey.
  • Storytelling is Powerful: When discussing your recognitions in interviews or networking conversations, frame them within a story that demonstrates the value you provided to others. This context makes your achievements more relatable and impactful.
