Developing a personal brand - creating your image and guiding your reputation - has never been more important. Whether you’re seeking to move up in your organization, looking for a new job, thinking about making a career change, launching a new business, wanting to attract new clients, or looking to scale your social impact, in today’s rapidly-changing, hyper competitive working world a strong and consistent personal brand is key to creating new opportunities for your career or business.
The truth is we all have a personal brand. It is how we are perceived by others - our friends, colleagues, and the public. It is what people think about when they hear our name and what people say about when we are not in the room. The key question we need to ask is: do we take charge of our personal brand or do we leave it up to chance?
Personal Branding with Purpose is not about learning how to "create" a personal brand. It's about learning how to live your personal brand by sharing your authentic self and communicating clearly the value you can provide others. Our passions, talents, and impact are unique gifts we can give to the world. By learning how to market these gifts through personal branding, you create not only career and business opportunities but also a greater capacity to make a difference in the lives of others and the planet.
