Rob always starts personal branding work with a definition. “I love the Jeff Bezos definition—your brand is what other people say when you’re not in the room.” That said, this takes a degree of self-understanding and assessment. Rob shared an exercise that makes this a little easier.
What does a personal brand blueprint look like? Whether corporate or personal, a brand is more than just a logo. But what are the key deliverables for a personal brand? We always provide someone with an overarching brand story along with a LinkedIn and resume reboot.”
“It’s a matter of intention, it’s a matter of purpose.” As Rob shared, personal branding starts and ends with purpose.
