Many people I talk with and work with don’t realize before they work with me, how talented they are! Even more amazing is that people in authority – managers, leaders, and senior executives, also suffer from not being able to communicate their unique strengths, achievements, vision, and leadership value proposition to others.
In today’s work world, the concept of “job security” has virtually been eliminated. If you don’t take control of your career then others will do it for you and most will not be looking out for your best interest but rather theirs. Think about a boss who doesn’t want you to move forward because you do such a great job and they don’t want to replace you. However, they don’t tell you what a great job you do.
I believe the cornerstone to take control of your career is the self-awareness of your talented self. This allows you to be in control of what you want to do at work, where, and who you work with. You have the talented self mindset – an absolute belief in your “can -do” attitude. You view (see) the world as a place where you “make things happen” everyday.
To move your career forward you must successfully market yourself. When you are in control of the next step in your career you want to move forward with the best strategy available.
The proven leading strategy to advance your career is the implementation of Authentic Self-Promotion. The essence is communicating clearly your unique strengths and achievements to others and your superiors. Not by bragging, not being pushy and not being annoying (bothering people). Rather, being able to answer the question:
How do you build your roadmap (career plan) to move forward from your starting point to your desired outcome?
My strategic career system helps professionals gain clarity on your unique strengths and relevant achievements to determine the “true value” you bring to an organization – your value proposition and competitive edge.
I can help.
The Art of Authentic Self-Promotion is a journey, not a one-time fix.
It is not only learning to communicate clearly your competitive edge and value proposition but gaining access to resources, time and the right people who can and will “elevate” you to the opportunities you desire.
How you plan to take control of your career – how you start, what the next move is, and how you find the all-important mentors and a sponsor (champion) is all part of the process.
The process involves two elements that you need to acquire:
- PRODUCT – YOUR TALENTED SELF!
- MARKETING STRATEGY
PRODUCT – YOUR TALENTED SELF!
TALENTED SELF MINDSET©
Developing your PRODUCT – your talented self – involves a TRANSFORMATION from not being confident and clear about your want. Is this you?
YOU HAVE OR EXPERIENCE:
• SELF DOUBT – CAN I REALLY DO THAT?
• SECOND-GUESSING DECISIONS – WHAT IF?
• DISMISS COMPLIMENTS – OH, THAT WAS NOTHING.
• RELUCTANT TO SPEAK UP AT A MEETING – WHAT IF THEY DISMISS OR UNCOMFORTABLE INTRODUCING YOURSELF – WHAT IS MY ELEVATOR PITCH?
• UNEASY SPEAKING TO PEOPLE IN AUTHORITY – WHAT DO I SAY?
• HESITATE TO ASK A FAVOUR – I DON’T WANT TO BOTHER ANYONE.
To a TRANSFORMATION of being clear on what you want and CONFIDENT you know to get it. The unshakeable belief in your ability to do the job and the value you bring to an organization.
How you make this transformation is going through the process:
Having an absolute belief that you “can do” the job and confidently communicate clearly and passionately to decision makers – Why you should choose me? To hire, give a raise or promote.
The result is a competent, CONFIDENT, and credible talented professional. You now view the world as a place where you “make things happen” everyday.
You will be confident and know your competitive edge and value proposition. You are a very valuable team member or leader.
