Can you rebuild a professional network after criminal charges?

On Behalf of | May 5, 2021 | Federal Crime |

The consequences of illegal behavior in the workplace can have far-reaching effects on your professional reputation. For example, you may have lost the trust and respect of a majority of your professional network.

Getting back on your feet and recovering your career will require the support of others. Rebuilding your network, fixing your reputation and regaining credibility is just the beginning.

Take ownership

It may not be the easiest thing to own up to your mistakes. In fact, you may even face a wrongful conviction if you did not do what everyone says you did. However, when you know of the accusations people believe about you, take ownership of your behavior and apologize for the misdeeds you did do.

Recognize that people may choose not to accept your apology. However, taking responsibility for your actions is an undeniable sign of your effort to right your wrongs. Practice mindfulness of the way you behave on social media platforms. Display humility, integrity and determination as you verbalize your commitment to change. Over time, you may find that people’s opinions of you have changed.

Take control

Some of the collateral damage of your actions lies outside of your control. According to Entrepreneur, do not get suckered into defending yourself to the point of liability. Identify consequences that you cannot control and move past them. Focus your energy on the things you can control and do your best to make a difference there.

Show eagerness in connecting with others and righting your wrongs. Despite what others may hear about you, you are in control of the way you respond. Staying true to yourself and feeling confident in your apology may go a long way in winning back the respect of others.
