What if We Could Control What People Think about Us?
The opinions other people form and adjust about us can be critical personally and professionally. People’s opinions of us give us our practical authority, our ability to influence and our ability to draw satisfaction from our work.
Though we may often feel powerless to shape the opinions that others have of us, the truth is that we have much more influence than we think. When other people form their opinions and judgements about us, they measure us against the expectations that we set. They judge us on the scale we give them.
