Suppose you resign today? Will your employer renegotiate your terms? Or will s/he say, ‘oh finally, Fyuks!, she’s gone, what a relieve?’. In your wildest imagination, would you even have the courage to test such murky waters of tendering your resignation today? No doubt that it has not escaped your attention that your position would be filled immediately and the organization moves on.
Unquestionably, you are adding value to your organization. That’s why they pay you in the first place. But perhaps your value is not unique. You are therefore, easily replaceable with someone with the same qualifications…who will also soon be replaced. This is because the world is full of good but general people.
Are you willing to stand out from the crowd? People are not patiently waiting for you to reveal yourself. They could even be envying your current job position. They will blog you out at the earliest opportunity possible unless you give them a compelling reason to need you.
Conformity is the enemy of personal branding. As Oscar Wilde says, ‘be yourself, everyone else is already taken.’ Your unique promise of value reconciles who you are with what you do. Work then no longer conflicts with what you do.
Your true value is never a commodity to be auctioned. It is only available from you. It is your personal brand. The more common you are, the less your brand value. A commodity competes on price but a brand is only available from you. A strong brand elicits emotion. People are attracted by rarity. The value of your brand is a factor of how rare your personal brand is in the market.
For the overwhelming majority of people, their brand is separate from what they do for a living. To be a legendary, however, you must align who you are with what you do. Legacy is curving your brand on peoples’ hearts, not tombstones. Your brand legacy will be sealed by the tangible difference you will contribute to humanity. Something you did so well in line with who you are that they can’t erase from history. That’s why it is said, ‘Nelson Mandela was greater than life.’ Life is too large, in essence, it is his brand. Can never be erased from human history.
Personal branding works for job-seekers, entrepreneurs as well as those in the corporate world. More-so, those who desire to move to the next level up the corporate ladder. If you don’t give the market the story to talk about, they’ll generously define your brand story for you. If you don’t identify your brand, you will live below your God-destined privileges.
In this momentous subject that I have entitled, “Re-invent yourself”, I will help you enhance your personal brand in such a manner that they will head hunt you wherever you go. Precisely, in a very inspiring session, I will take you through:
- Personal Brand Identity
- Personal Brand Value
- Personal Brand Proposition
- Personal Brand Packaging
- Personal Brand Features
- Personal Brand Price
- Personal Brand Legacy
Since I am a firm believer in personal branding, my presentation style is a notable market brand and those who’ve attended my seminars can attest. In all likelihood, we will not repeat this topic in the foreseeable future and I can assure you that you’ll never hear it presented in the style, methodology and approach that we’ll use with Regina Re, an illustrious Personal Branding coach. I can say with integrity that if you miss this transformative session, you will have missed a life time opportunity to re-invent yourself.
