Enhance Your Personal Brand

Professional-300x300.jpg

It is not that many years ago that the term “Personal Brand” did not exist!  Back then we built a “reputation”, “beefed up our resume”, strove to be a “thought leader”, were careful of our “image” etc.  However I like the all encompassing description of Personal Brand!

What can YOU do to enhance your Personal Brand?

  1. Be a “thought leader” … share your knowledge.

  2. Invest in yourself … never stop learning.

  3. Learn … beyond your “technical area”.  Professionals who truly understand how their technical skill impacts the business are most in demand.

  4. Network … and not JUST people like you!

  5. Dress for success!

  6. Get involved in your community … charities, industry associations, kid’s sports etc.

  7. Love what you do … you have to do it anyway so get your head into loving it!

  8. Work hard … be known as someone who delivers!

  9. Be positive … hang with positive people, think positive thoughts.

  10. Be an interesting person … keep up with current affairs, have opinions, listen to others!

Its all about raising your profile, establishing a positive reputation and living up to it!
