To find out how people view you, ask them or look for patterns in performance reviews, strategy consultant Dorie Clark writes in this blog post. Take trusted colleagues to lunch and ask them what you do well and where you could grow -- how they describe you can be revealing, she writes. Past performance reviews and recommendation letters are valuable, too. "[I]f you see multiple mentions of a particular skill set ('Lisa is a brilliant public speaker') or shortcoming ('Martin has a hard time accepting feedback'), you should take heed," Clark advises.
How can you find what your colleagues think of you?
