Like a former marketing director, I’ve instinctively encouraged our clients to make use of “Madison Avenue” advertising strategies to boost their visibility inside an organization or maybe more important when they are trying to find their next position inside a company. I question them:
• Who’s your audience? Possibly your manager, your boss’s boss, peers with influence, the boss’s admin, leaders in departments you want to transfer to?
• How can you talk with your target? This may be e-mail, informal communication via chatting, leading mix-functional projects, writing and submitting articles for that e-newsletter?
• How’s it going seen inside the organization and in your department?
WHAT’S YOUR BRAND?
You hear this everywhere…companies discuss their branding or re-branding and today we are all hearing that to be able to manage your job and become “seen” inside an organization you have to build up your brand. Is that this just corporate “double- speak” or performs this really mean something?
Yes, it’s “corporate double speak” you will find it is important… So to be able to start your personal branding process, think about these questions:
• What shall we be held noted for inside my company (in your department and outdoors your department)?
• What shall we be held considered a specialist on?
• Exactly what do people arrived at me for?
• When co-workers see me, exactly what does my appearance communicate about me?
• After I speak and write will i communicate in a manner that reflects my brand?
Right now you may be trembling your mind and wondering exactly what does this suggest in my experience? This is also true if you have been among the essential “silent troops” who are able to continually be relied on to obtain the work done, but don’t get famous for promotion.
Your condition might be that you have not taken control of your job. You have been complacent and secure and possibly you are wondering why you are stuck. Begin with this paradigm shift:
You’re the Chief executive officer of company ‘You’. Take control of the brand!
