When do you feel most engaged? Most energized?
When you engage in an activity you are truly good at, your excitement is visible. Your pupils dilate, your chest is broader, your speech is fast and fluid, and your arms spread wider.
You need to explore new roles, to discover your gifts.
Think of your workplace as a laboratory. Encourage flexible roles and see how it goes. If people are excited about trying something else and you have some evidence that they could be good, then experiment with it.
In a situation where you are truly using your strengths, you will stand out from a crowd. Your approach will be unique.
To name your strengths, you want to identify those moments and articulate how you are different.
Always have a rejection-processing protocol in place. Debrief with personal and professional support people who can empathize and appreciate your experiences without passing judgment, criticizing or looking to give you immediate advice.
Overcoming rejection actually occurs from accepting the emotions that come with it.

Refer and direct those customers to your competitors that fit their needs. They certainly would not forget the lengths you went to. Such service is rare.
You might initially doubt yourself, question your competency and your self-worth but after you have weathered the storm, activate your growth mindset and start asking questions:

An intrapreneur can be defined as someone who thinks like an entrepreneur but brings their ideas to the company where they are employed instead of launching their own business.
Instate a "no idea is a bad idea" policy, gather the support your employees need to try out their ideas and let them pitch decision-makers at your company.
This allows employees to spend 15 % of their paid work time daydreaming, doodling or experimenting with ideas that don’t necessarily have to do with their work at the company.
This kind of daydreaming is the genesis of invention and fosters passion for one’s work.
