How People Perceive You, Is How They Will Deal With You.
Most of the decisions that affect your career happen when you're not in the room. Things like: Getting raises and promotions. Increasing the budget for your department.

Which speaker gets invited to a conference. All of this happens when you're not in the room. You know what is in the room? The perception of you. It's either working for you or against you.
