You Need to Be Seen as an Authority

by admin on April 2, 2014

EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes discusses the role of ‘authority’ in your job.

In order to get a job, stay employed and succeed in the world, you need to demonstrate authority. You can do this through titles and all sorts of other ways. You need to portray strength and confidence to your employer and potential employers.

There are numerous potential authority indicators a potential employer is looking for. In addition, your current employer may be holding you in higher esteem due to things you have done in the past. For example, if you attended a great university you may be getting the benefit of doubt.

Many people have very little self confidence and are constantly asking others questions and seeking the approval and authority of other people. We look for others’ opinions in an effort to give authority to our decisions and, in fact, even our lives in many cases. We use authority to govern our relationship and interaction with the world.

The more presumed authority you have to offer your employer, the bigger difference it will make. Authority has a giant impact on your success and what ends up happening to you in your career and job. You need to always cultivate authority.
