Do the people you work with understand what you’re good at? I don’t mean what you do or what your job description is, but what you’re good at – how you add value to your organisation, how you can help other people do their jobs more effectively.
I sometimes wonder whether everyone I work with understands exactly how Planners can help them understand their target audience better to make communications with them more effective. “We’d better get a Planner in” is no good unless they know why they are doing it. More internal training needed I think.

Interesting question! Often it is easy to focus on the projects that we work on to the detriment of our own personal profile. But the two go hand in hand … perhaps we need to do more internal “selling” than training.
Ofcourse, people really do not understand at most of the times “why they are doing what they are doing”
