resentation Synopsis -  Your Professional Brand, Guard it with your Life


Whether you acknowledge it or not, you have a brand. Do you know what it is? Does it truly represent who you are? What are you doing to grow and protect your brand?


Do you want to let others define you?


If you are not clear about who you are as a professional, others will make up their own image for you. Then they will broadcast that image. Wouldn’t it be better if you took control? If you heard an associate describe you, would you be shocked? You don’t have to let that happen.


It all starts with you


Your character is your own. Your reputation is defined by others. It is your job to make sure they get it right. If you want your management and associates to ‘get’ you, then first you need to understand just who you are. Then you need to consistently act in a way that clearly represents the real you.


Together we will review and discuss the key steps you can take right now to manage your professional brand. And then one day very soon when you hear your management describe you, it will be as-if you have put the words in their mouths yourself.
