#IamRemarkable Week Online Challenge

Power through these daily challenges to boost your confidence and self-promotion skills. Track your progress and encourage others to join you in this adventure.

Thursday - 12th November

Start tracking your achievements

Open a notebook, or Google Doc, and start logging your accomplishments. Building this habit is important for self development. Not only will you have everything at hand when it comes to job interviews, or performance reviews, but it can also provide a big confidence boost if you’re having a bad day.

Testimonial

Friday - 13th November

Look for role models to mimic and learn from

Self-promotion doesn’t always come naturally. Look for role models to mimic and learn from. Take some time to create a short list of people who do self-promotion right, and what they do well. It will help you sharpen this skill, and, over time, you will find your own natural voice.

Testimonial

Saturday - 14th November

Gather honest feedback from your peers and friends

Email ten people that you’ve either worked with, or are friends with, and ask them about a situation where you did something that helped them, and the things they value about you. Store all the feedback you receive, and think about these when you feel self doubt.

Testimonial

Sunday - 15th November

Share an accomplishment that you are most proud of in social media

Sharing is caring - most of us love to read and hear inspiring personal stories about achievement, learnings, successes. Think about an accomplishment of yours that others can learn from, and share it on social media. Don’t forget to add the #IamRemarkable hashtag!

Testimonial

Monday - 16th November

Say ‘I’ instead of ‘we’ when talking about your achievements

We did this... we achieved that… Many of us tend to use ‘we’ instead of ‘I’ when talking about accomplishments. It’s time to challenge yourself, and start focusing on saying I when you, as an individual, achieve something. It might feel odd in the beginning, but it’s worth a try.

Testimonial

Tuesday - 17th November

Use your self-
promotion skills to
achieve a specific goal

Consider what you want to accomplish and set a specific goal which motivates you to work on your self-promotion skills. This could be applying for a job or promotion, putting yourself forward for a project or developing a new business opportunity.

Testimonial

Wednesday - 18th November

Start hosting remarkable Wednesdays

Get a group of friends or colleagues to share an achievement out loud every Wednesday. Set up a communication channel for this purpose today: this could be via a weekly ‘Remarkable Wednesday’ email thread, a group on social media, or just a dedicated chat group.
