How good are you at telling your own professional story?
First, do you rely on your job titles, academic degrees, your linear progress up the promotional food chain of an organization as proof of your story? Customers may not have a clue what any of these accomplishments signify, for them.
Then, is the story you tell customers all about your organization’s business or use cases? When what your customers really want to learn more about is you. Not your organization’s products and services.
Or, have you taken the time to explore your professional story? Because colleagues and clients do business with you because of what you, and only you, bring to their table. Consistently, confidently and remarkably.
Do you know what is needed to start telling your professional story more compellingly?
I offer these six blog posts to get you thinking about your professional story, differently. You bring a remarkable gift to your clients: you. Except that, far too often, our own story becomes secondary to whatever company we work for or the products and services we sell. Your professional story is about you, regardless of your current employer or whatever it is you sell, service or engineer. Read on.
Take the next steps towards telling your professional story.
