The Right Kind of Measuring

The right question to ask should focus on strategy execution and how it is resonates with an audience. Does it enhance your reputation? Is your network of relationships growing? Even more importantly, are you establishing yourself as a subject matter expert?
Is Your Reputation Being Enhanced?
