Adding Extra Value

Updated: Aug 21, 2018


There are so many ways to demonstrate added value to your peers, clients or stakeholders, which is often overlooked.


Adding value doesn’t have to involve big gestures; we can simply:


Make the time to ask questions

We all have something to offer and sharing our different perspectives or asking thought-provoking questions can have surprisingly remarkable results.


Seek and give feedback

Acting on others suggestions and ideas for improvements will enable us to enhance our understanding of a situation, enabling us to demonstrate added value to those we are working with.

Also, taking the time to give feedback is a powerful way to engage your peers showing them that you are watching, listening and learning. 


Share information

Sharing information is another way of adding value which personally, has really worked for me. Giving people a heads up regarding up and coming funding opportunities, dropping another project manager a call when a last-minute deadline has been released, or you may share a news article or recent report.


Not only does this support others in their role, but allows you to demonstrate your value as being the reliable and in-the-know person to count on.


Be proactive

Being proactive and showing people a prototype of your ideas is another proven strategy. If you are listening to your stakeholder's needs, taking your own time to come up with a solution they might be interested in and presenting this in a creative way will make you stand out.
