How Do I Stand Out?
Play • 30 min

The number one concern of new employees we spoke to, those entering their first or second jobs, was knowing how to stand out, in order to advance in their career. But this is not just a challenge for young workers. Mid to senior career employees can experience the same issue, feeling stuck at work, due to anxiety, introversion or lack of confidence.

May Busch, a former finance exec, recounts her experience with exactly this frustration, and how she overcame it. Laura Huang, author of Edge, explains how hard work isn’t always enough to stand out. It’s about influencing people’s underlying perceptions of you.

HR experts Avery Francis and Jennifer L’Heureux outline what traits and behaviours — alongside qualifications — progressive companies are looking for in employees they promote, and keep. Olga Khazan, author of Weird talks about how to stand out as an introvert. And Ron Heifetz discusses how practicing adaptive leadership can help you stand out.
