LIVE ONLINE

A Personal Branding Course to Accelerate Your Career

Excellent functional and technical skills in a specific area of expertise can only take your career so far. Often, very skilled people don’t realize how important it is to have a personal branding plan. Without a strategic plan that links your personal brand and your career goals, it’s easy to feel as though your career isn’t progressing fast enough, your potential is left unrecognized, and you are not being given opportunities for growth. In this highly applied online personal branding course, you will learn how to articulate your differentiators, set career goals, and develop a personal branding plan for success.

Build Your Personal Brand Without BoastingBuilding Your Personal Brand Without Boasting

One of the biggest hurdles to strategic personal brand development is the perceptions people hold that thinking, and even talking about themselves (gasp!), is counter to their desire to appear humble and demur. Read Karen's article and discover ways to build your brand and still be humble.

 

What Will You Learn?

This online personal branding workshop provides specific tools and exercises, as well as individualized coaching and feedback, so you can advance your career. Our personal branding training covers the following topics: 

  • How to identify and articulate your personal differentiators
  • Ways to communicate your value so others will listen
  • Self-awareness, composure, and your stumbling blocks
  • Steps for building a career narrative that strengthens, redefines, or establishes your professional brand

Your instructor can share documents and interactive media, invite participants to share content, and engage with you in real-time participation. Links to sessions and more information will be provided on Canvas.
