Viadeo along with Guillem Recolons, personal branding expert and co-founder SoyMiMarca, They have presented the keys to building, improve and enhance the brand that projects an individual personal and professional level, both online and offline.
In this sense, Guillem Recolons noted: “The strategic goal of personal branding is to help us visualize where we want to be in ten years and learn to use the tools to reach that destination”. Thus, Recolons has highlighted three key steps for creating professional positioning we want:
self-knowledge: It is important to start by asking yourself some questions about our current situation. Who I am? What are my skills? How far my education and training arrives?
Strategy: How do others see me? How did I get here? What is my competition? What I want to achieve target? Once we have an accurate idea of how we see ourselves and how we see, we are in a position to raise the best strategy for our positioning.
Visibility: It is time to start communicating our mission, vision and values, as if it were a business, and build our personal brand.
