This week’s tip is thanks to Ragan, who did a great blog offering 10 tips to excelling at PR.
With end-of-year reviews – both those from our bosses and our own internal check-ups – I (Alison, that is) thought this was an especially helpful and had a few additional tips:
- Become a Mentor – chances are you will learn something new too.
- Calm Down – we PR types tend to be a little type A. Sometimes our own over-eagerness is our worst enemy
- Do Someone Else’s Job One in a While – If you’re a senior exec, take some time to update a media list once in a while; if you are the president of the company, come to a client meeting; if you are an intern, ask about pitching a story. It helps to understand where you are, where your team is, and what has changed over time. Look forward, but also always look back
