What is a personal brand?
There are a million opinions about branding – especially of the personal sort. 👉🏻 According to Jeff Bezos, your personal brand is what people say about you when you leave the room.
Are you a leader?
Do you consistently exceed expectations?
Are you always late?
Do you present problems without solutions?
When discussing a personal brand, I’ve heard people say:
… that your network is the only thing that matters
… that your brand comes from your title and salary
… that a good resume and LinkedIn profile will get you noticed
Your brand is more than these things, but it can be hard to pinpoint because it’s a collection of your unique traits.
✔ Your passions
✔ How you get things done
✔ Your vision
✔ What you value
✔ Your commitment
✔ How you treat and lead others
✔ Why you do what you do
✔ Past successes
✔ And more
Naming the things that make your brand unique will serve you in your current role, new opportunities, interviews, and public speaking.
