Especially in this era of social media, the customer actually has more control over our brand than we do!  So how do we manage our brand?  We will look into how brands are developed and managed, and when updating the brand or complete re-branding is needed.

Do you know what value you bring to your organization? Many of us are hyper-aware of our strengths and value only when we are looking for work and limit that discussion to the job interview. We know how to get the job, yet over time forget that managing our value and being visible is even more important to keep the job. Consider what will happen when leadership seeks to develop new products or explore new market niches and considers current workers to staff those innovations. Will our accomplishments be known? Or will we be overlooked because we did our work and kept a low profile, believing that the work should speak for itself? Especially in today’s blended work environment, we need to be deliberate about managing our value and taking steps to be appropriately visible at work, in person and online.

Maturity of mind is the capacity to endure uncertainty" (John Finely, Historian, Mathematician). Resiliency allows us to bounce back when things do not go as planned. In response to the uncertainties and rapid, chaotic changes we are facing in our professional and personal lives, the ability to not get derailed or immobilized can serve us well. Learning to channel your mental energy into being the best of who you are, involves refusing to give in to feelings of frustration and then reminding yourself that you have better things to do with your time, significant objectives yet to accomplish. Corporate uncertainty is not going away, so why not expand your ability to bounce back in response to current and future challenges?
