Personal Leadership Brand
Leaders with a strong professional brand are impactful, influential, and effective in their roles. In this program, we explore the need to develop a compelling personal brand. We examine several celebrity examples to identify the critical elements of successful brands, and we experience three exercises to assist in the development of a unique brand: Start with Why, Personal SWOT Analysis, and Assets Inventory. At the end of the program, you'll have a powerful brand to share.
- Appreciate the importance and impact of a leadership brand
- Understand your personal assets
- Identify gaps in your leadership and communication skills
- Develop a brand statement
- Communicate your brand to colleagues
