I watched "It doesn't take money to make money" by Brandon Leibel on You Tube. The
presentation was about what him and his friends had to do to make their company
successful. With them quitting their jobs, eating rice and beans every day and using the
tools provided to them on you tube and other social media networks, these men put together
a business without having to spend money they didn't have. They taught themselves the
basics and spent many hours on the beach and umbering to network and get followers on
their Instagram account. Doing this helped their company tremendously by gaining
thousands of followers and being featured on the news which led buyer to their website to
purchase. This presentation was highly effective in my own personal opinion. He made me
realize that there are so many free outlets to use to promote your company and that if you
take the time and effort, you can turn nothing into a huge something. A presenter can
connect with their audience by asking questions, engaging, being personable, and talking
about what the audience is there for .I try to establish and maintain credibility in my
workplace by always being honest and transparent with people. I have noticed that people
show more respect for you when you are trustworthy, even if that means having to say
things that might be harsh or offensive. I also always try to lead by example. I am a strong
believer that people show more respect towards you when you are willing to do whatever
you ask of them yourself. Having had my fair share of poor supervisors over the years, I
can also attest to that belief. I always had contempt for the supervisors that were never
willing to do what they expected of others, and vice versa I always had utmost respect and
admiration for those who would step up and lead by example .I think that it is important to
establish credibility as a business professional because people tend to side with those that
have a positive reputation over those that do not. This is very important in the business
world, especially if you are a small business trying to gain a foothold since there is so much
competition available.A poorly written message impacts a leader's credibility severely
because people look to their leaders for guidance and inspiration. Sending a poorly crafted
message impacts the leader's image and may cause the leader to lose most, if not all, of
their respect and competence in the eyes of those being led.I am currently a bus driver for
mine sites, so most of our communication is verbal, rather than written. Most of our
credibility is established when something goes wrong, and understanding how to deal with
the problem as quickly and safely as possible. If you are able to quickly and safely deal
with most problems arise, most people around you that know about it are much more
willing to trust whatever you say. The newer you are or if you have not dealt with any out
of the ordinary situations you are likely to be less trusted by those around you. I have
worked there six days a week, two shifts a day for the past six months. I have dealt with
numerous issues both on and off my bus, and the miners I drive have started to trust that I
know what I am doing. The importance for business professionals to be credible is so that
everyone moves in the same way they do towards a goal. If you have a supervisor with low
credibility attempting to reach a goal, you may not like or follow their plan, and end up
working directly against what they want, causing more harm throughout the process than
doing nothing in the first place. I work directly under my supervisor then there are four
staff directly under me. I feel like i maintain credibility by having a good work ethic. I don't
ask my staff to do anything that i would not do and i treat all my staff with respect. I am
always telling staff that if they need help or don't understand something, they can call me
anytime for help. If my staff feel like they need more training i have no problem giving
them more training. My word is my bond so if i tell my staff that i will do something i try
to do it and if it cant be done, i let them know that i was not able to complete the task. I
dont think Im better than my coworkers and am big on teamwork because i feel like the job
cant be done properly without a team. When sending messages at work i try to think about
the people who will be reading the message. One coworker in particular tends to feel like
she is being targeted so i try to remember to use words like WE and US. I start the message
off with a nice greeting and end it the same way. I read over my text before sending it to
make sure it doesnt read as disrespectful to any one. An important factor in developing
credibility in the workplace is to listen to your team. You build a level of trust by listening
and showing you care. Integrity and respect are integral in the development and to maintain
credibility. Being accountable is another example of credibility that cannot be understated.
Taking on the role of leader is pivotal. Encourage collaboration along the way. A strong
leader knows when to lead but also when to follow. Promoting synergy is another
contributing factor to establishing credibility in the professional environment.A poorly
written message can affect someone's credibility because it can cause another team member
to be confused by the message, resulting in that person wondering how competent the
writer is. It can affect proficiency and impact morale in the workplace. Writing a message
that is well crafted, thought out and meaningful can impact the work environment in a
positive way. I believe establishing one’s credibility is a simple and straightforward
process, although it requires a rather large amount of discipline and consistency to create it
and maintain it. The process of establishing credibility requires a person to be consistent,
reliable, honest, and understandable. I also believe that with regards to being
understandable, a person should be almost predictable to a certain extent. Time
management plays a large role in developing credibility in not only the professional areas of
life but the personal areas as well. Sticking to a plan, being consistent in making deadlines
and meeting them, being punctual and reliable, trustworthy and thorough all play a part in
building a person’s reputation for being credible and an asset for a company.When a person
who holds a leadership role in a business writes correspondence poorly to their staff or
fellow employees, it can impact that person’s image, as well as their reputation in a
negative way. This can result in a loss of respect. It can be difficult for an individual to be
comfortable taking instruction from another person who cannot compose something as
simple as a message to their employees. Negative feelings and emotions can easily become
a problem that spreads throughout a work environment through channels like gossip and
chat during breaks amongst employees. It can be difficult to instruct a group of adults on a
job or a project when the group has little to no respect for you.On the other hand, if an
individual is consistent and capable of writing and sending well written, thorough,
grammatically correct messages and other correspondence to employees, the staff will have
a much easier time following instructions and guidance from that leader. That person will
be more likely to gain respect and maintain a certain level of needed respect for the
leadership of the company. Negative chatter during breaks amongst employees will not be
an issue, and in some cases may shift to positive comments regarding the business
leadership amongst the employees. That can only help push the company in a positive
direction in the end. In my experience, in order to be successful in your career and to run a
successful company, creditability is extremely important. Some individuals make a living
doing seminars for professionals on the importance. You can develop credibility by
showing others that they can rely on you, that you are dependable, that you are
knowledgeable, and ethical. You maintain credibility by maintaining all the characteristics
just listed. It is important to establish and maintain credibility, so others trust that you are
capable and reliable regarding your job and your responsibilities. Without credibility, others
may question your “work product” or word. Creditability will allow others to trust you and
will open more doors for more opportunities or business and/or personal growth.Ethics are
part of credibility. When messages are poorly written, others may view the author of the
message as unethical. Customers do not want to deal with Owners and companies that are
unethical. When you lose your credibility, it can be very difficult to convince others that
you are creditable. You or your company will receive a “bad rep”. When building
credibility, it takes time and patience to build it up. Trying to build it in the workplace can
be hard sometimes. You make sure you show up on time everyday, do your work to the
best of your ability, and even beyond sometimes, in hope that doing so shows them that you
are a reliable, responsible, and dependable worker. While in hoping it does positive and
proves to your boss, it can also bring negativity from other co-workers due to jealousy,
bullying, etc. That is also where your credibility would come into play on how you would
handle that type of situation. When building credibility with professionals, it is important to
make sure you are clear and precise when it comes to communicating. Sending a poorly
written message can potentially cause someone to misunderstand the initial act in place and
could result in a negative outcome. You should make sure your messages are clear and
easily understandable as well as precise and professional. You could be trying to say one
thing but the other person thinks of a completely different scenario in what you are trying
to say. It could cause confusion for all parties involved. I do everything I can to develop
and maintain my credibility daily. I am in a position that requires me to solve problems
with the help of multiple teams. In doing so, I must maintain my accuracy while sharing
requests for work to be completed specifically. The reading spoke about these requirements.
I found it very accurate in looking at previous times my work has been successful, and
helped my credibility. Specifically the portion that read Your colleagues, clients, and other
contacts expect complete information so they can act on your message immediately.” I do
my best to ensure accuracy in my requests, so that the purpose of my communication is
read well, and easy to understand. The next line in the previous quote, mentions what
happens if this is not done.. “Otherwise, they will need to contact you to get additional
information, or worse yet, ignore your message altogether.” Ignoring a message would mark
you as not credible. It's not something that you can do one day out of the week. It is
something we must maintain as relationships require constant nurturing (just as any
relationship), to maintain a continued respect.Building credibility at workplace is hard and
it may take time. I try to build and maintain my credibility at workplace by being honest,
show respect for everybody, being reliable, and a good teacher and learner. Also, it is
particularly important to listen to coworkers. I always try to show my coworkers I care. I
like to think of my coworkers as family, it is important to try to know them as much as
possible that way I know what tone I should use when communicate with them. Credibility
is crucial for business professionals. Create and maintain credibility as a professional may
lead your company/organization to gain a good reputation. Thinking as a costumer or client,
I will prefer to do business with a company/organization with a good reputation. A poorly
written message may impact in a negative way a leader’s credibility. If the message is not
clear, it may cause misunderstanding. Sometimes the message is not written with the entire
audience in mind, making feel part of the audience dissatisfied. When a leader’s credibility
is not negative may lead to staff frustration and affect productivity at workplace. Credibility
in the workplace is an extremely important thing to establish in the workplace because it
can have lasting effects to you and to those around you on how they perceive you not only
as a worker, but as a person also. My reflection on creditability and how I develop it in the
workplace is establishing relationships with my fellow coworkers and maintaining that
relationship with them even outside of work. I also make sure that I do not divert my ways
while working and only adjust based on the needs of the team and if it would benefit all of
us. That to me will keep the creditability as a worker and a fellow member in the workplace
because of my commitment to always staying the same and only changing if I needed to.
Establishing creditability is crucial to success in building professional relationships with
people and further growth in any aspect in life both professional and personal. When
someone creates a poor representation with themselves and loses their credibility, you begin
to lose something that is essential and almost a death sentence to creating a business
relationship with them and that is trust. Trust I think Is immediately lost when you lose
your credibility with anyone and I think this is true especially form a business standpoint.
Credibility is earned, and when establishing a new relationship, it cannot be easy to start. I
establish credibility by ensuring I follow through with my commitments and keep my
promises. This shows others I can be relied on to handle tasks by the advised timeline and
builds on to my credibility. I also try to be socially responsible whenever I can, especially
when issues arise due to my actions. This action shows I can be trusted, and I can take
responsibility when things go wrong. However, while it can be seen as unfavorable, it's
good to know I can take charge of what issues I create and do what I can to fix the
problem. It is essential to have credibility when being a business professional, from an entry
level position to a CEO. If a message written by a leader is poorly written, it can be seen as
uncredible and lead to distrust in leadership. From here, it can cause the hierarchy to
breakdown.
