As a coach and writer, a major part of my focus is on building a “platform” – an audience for my work. I build my platform through this blog, my newsletter, having a social media presence, speaking, workshops, writing and coaching. Without a platform, I will not succeed.
Whatever your profession, you have a platform, too. In business, your platform is built by how you function in the work world and may look out on your managers, team, customers or professional network. They are your audience. Your success and effectiveness are reliant on how you interact with them.
It is worthwhile to take a look at and cultivate your platform. If others are watching and can impact your success and effectiveness, best to pay attention to them. How strong is your platform these days?
