We find analytical people often have difficulty promoting themselves without feeling slimy. If others do not know the contributions being made by the analytical contributor, it’s a loss to the organization, and to that person.
Just because things aren’t perfect does not mean progress is not worthy of celebration. Our counsel to such analytical people is to think of someone they respect who balances honesty and hope. People who present the tough results and are still able to be hopeful motivate others. Emulate them. It is important to do the work. It’s also important to provide hope.
