When you think of Richard Branson – you know his leadership style immediately. He’s a rule breaker, dynamic, informal, creative, entrepreneurial. What type of leader are you or do you want to be? Personal Branding is a leadership course for business leaders who want to sharpen up and managers looking to become leaders.
Business leaders are judged on how they look and how they speak way before anyone cares about what they have to say. A cheap suit, scuffed shoes, limp handshake and lack of eye contact will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Unfair? Probably. Harsh reality? Absolutely and particularly in the age of social media. So the first and last impression a senior executive makes is crucial.
A strong brand is everything today and without it people are not clear what they are buying into or following. As a leader you’ve got to have a clear vision with consistent values that your teams can clearly see and understand that they are following. Personal branding is about knowing who you are and what you stand for.
So what are your values, beliefs and stories? How do they correlate with your organisation? And what is the best version of you that you want to project?
