Let’s kick off the first episode in this mini-series focused on adding value as a female exec. 

I say it in a thousand ways, but ultimately, at Legend Leaders, we help you create the professional success you desire so that you can have the personal freedom you deserve, right?

But how do we help you achieve this?

How do you achieve professional success? 

Here is the answer in a nutshell: add value on a daily basis. 

It’s what we call The 1 Rule here at Legend Leaders. The 1 Rule of business success is that you must add daily value. When you do that, you become an irreplaceable asset in the marketplace.   

So this month we are going to dive into the topic of adding value, executing The 1 Rule, and becoming that irreplaceable asset.  

It’s the ultimate pathway to creating career success and therefore personal freedom.  

Ready for the first truth?

If you’re not focused on adding value, you’re not creating success.  You’re simply delaying success.

How do you know if you’re actually adding value or not?

To answer that we must understand who defines value.

The person who defines “value” is the customer.

As an employee, your customer is your company.

The company defines what it values.

This is critically important. We can say the company is wrong, we can say that we should define value, we can argue it all day, but it doesn’t change the reality that the company you work for is your customer and therefore you must add value as defined by the organization.

So if you align with that concept, then you must seek to understand the definition of “value” as defined by your company.

How do you get this information?

Through your job description, your evaluation criteria, and your bonus metrics.

Those 3 resources are how the company provides you with the answers to the “success test” as I call it.

If you deliver to those 3 areas of your role, you’re adding value in the eyes of the organization.

So my question for you is, are you adding value based on your company’s definition?

Take the time this week to find out.
