Greetings Future and Current Women In * Network Members!

Accept Credit for YOUR Accomplishments…

wherever they may be found!

Great things continue to happen with the members of the Women In * Network! Three of our current members are profiled in Concentrate Magazine and mi perfect job!

Chevetta Burton, Alicia Thomas and I, Nicole Johnson, are taking advantage on the branding opportunities that networking and social media can bring by accepting credit for our respective accomplishments.

Too often we, women, shy away for being recognized for our accomplishments. One of the major goals of The Women In * Network is to provide Knowledge in useful tools that you can implement now! As such here or some quick tips I found on how to Accept Credit for Accomplishments Modestly but Strongly; in the book: How to say it for women By Phyllis Mindell on page 248.

“…Women managers often so self effacing that they say things like, “It’s not my achievement; it’s theirs…”

How Not to Accept Credit
1. “It was really nothing.”
2. “I got lucky.”
3. “It wasn’t me; it was the team.”
4. “I worked hard.”
5. “I tried.”
6. “I don’t know if it was really only luck or not, but I was the only women who took the supervisor exam and the only one who passes. Despite the incompetence of the team, I pulled the show together on my own.

How to Accept Credit
1. Thank you.
2. Under my leadership, the employees at Zuckerman’s Barn succeeded in a joint effort to save the life of the runt of the litter.
3. This task could not have accomplished this task without your cooperation and support.
4. We could not have accomplished this task without everyone’s cooperation and support
5. Your cooperation and support contributed so much to my (our) success.
6. I was the only women who took the supervisor exam and the only one who passed.
