Would You Want To Meet You?

Image is important, like it or not, and your personal brand is a delicate thing.  If you muck with it you may never completely recover, and if you don’t spend time thinking about it, others may see you very differently.  So what can you do to nurture this golden nugget and build your brand so that you’re in demand personally and professionally?

Build Your Brand

Think about the type of people you like spending time with or aspire to meet – what is it about them that makes you sit up and pay attention?  Take a few moments now to answer these questions: –

  • Work: Who do you admire and why?  What qualities do they possess that you would like to have?
  • Relationships : What friends and family do you love spending time with and why?
  • Well-being: Who do you know that looks after themselves well and what would you need to do to emulate them?

By focusing on a third party you will be able to clearly see what attributes and qualities you admire in others, and would therefore like to see in yourself.

Now consider how you can display those qualities?  For example: –

  • Work: If you admire someone who is professional, an inspiring leader and a creative thinker, what do you need to do to demonstrate those qualities too?  What is it about them that makes you think they’re professional?  How did they become an inspiring leader?  And what do they do to think so creatively?

By asking yourself smart questions, actively seeking out the answers, and building a plan of action to help you develop those qualities personally and professionally, you can build a strong image to be proud of.

Importantly, don’t just sit back and admire others – build a brand for yourself that encapsulates those qualities and become ‘the type of person you want to meet’.
