Networking for leadership enterprise

In Branding, Collaboration, Development, Networking, Personal Branding on December 13, 2015 at 10:52 pm

networking

Enterprise leadership is the art of encouraging leaders to focus on organizational outcomes and working on behalf of the firm as a whole, as opposed to placing a focus only on their own team. This holistic approach compels consideration at a more strategic level. In other words, working for the greater good.

So as a leader, when you’re invited to events, it’s a good idea to bear this in mind and consider how to leverage from these events to make potential new connections, build on existing relationships and even open up opportunities for the business you represent. It’s not simply about being present at these events, but about strategic networking. So let’s look at some strategies.

Making a positive mark with your personal brand

In Branding, Communication, Inspire, Marketing, Personal Branding on September 12, 2013 at 10:16 am

I recently wrote a blog about personal branding. Today I want to talk about what personal branding is. And what it isn’t.

Personal branding isn’t about self-promotion. It’s not about how much money you have. And it’s not about how many people know you.

Personal branding is about who you are and how you project yourself. It’s about the three words that come to mind when people think of you. It’s about the impression you give when you first meet someone. It’s about how others remember you.

Remember: Everything that you say, do, and think feeds into your personal brand.

And remember: Personal branding is not bound by social conventions. It is limitless and driven only by your core values.

And the thing about personal branding is that it’s not about what you do as a profession that sets who you are. It is about who you are.

Branding the busy bee

In Branding, Communication, Inspire, Marketing, Personal Branding on August 30, 2013 at 11:51 pm

I want to say something about the ‘busy-ness’ of life. This whole business of being busy. Everyone’s busy. Everyone seems to be busy.

And the most ironic thing is, the more technology advances to make it easier for people to stay connected, the busier we get.

What ignites your spark?

In Creative, Inspire, Writing on June 14, 2013 at 10:13 pm

I’m always on the lookout for things that inspire me. And I’m always connecting with those who fuel that inspiration and creativity. Or at least, I try to.

The Internet and social media have certainly helped facilitate that. My day job predominantly involves writing for e-learning, which means I dedicate my hours to projects that I believe inspire and grow people. And this job is made possible via the Internet. It’s a cyclic process. So it would be highly ironic if I didn’t believe in its power.

I also believe everyone has a voice and a story to tell. You may not be able to write it out, but there are other creative ways to tell your story. Artists and creatives paint, sing, dance, sculpt, produce, and create; with one ultimate goal: to share. To be heard. And for some of us, it’s therapeutic. Cathartic.

Your daily dose of inspiration

In Creative, Inspire, Personal Branding on August 4, 2012 at 3:23 am

The other day, I asked a colleague if he was feeling inspired, to which his response was pretty flat. And it got me thinking. There’s way too much to enjoy in life to not feel inspired on a daily basis.

A couple of weeks back, I wrote about inspiration being at the heart of creativity. But how does one stay inspired?

Let’s have a look, shall we?
