Personal Branding FAQ 6. being employed, Does it make sense for me personal brand?

I guess you already know that employment for life has expired. Even in Japan. But beyond the “addiction” to a job, the personal branding for professionals as an employee of an organization it is useful for many other reasons:

  1. It is perceived as a unique and valuable specialist.
  2. break the crystal cealing, a term originally referred to the difficulty of women to access top management positions, but now it could be extended to people of any stagnant sex or stopped by an insurmountable wall superior.
  3. Career planning, a responsibility that was once companies and is now the sole responsibility of each professional.
  4. Align the EVP (employee value proposition or employee value proposition) with the proposed corporate value.

Personal Branding FAQ 7. Being manager why should I manage my personal brand?

You might think that you've reached your professional destiny. And Now the work is more complex: stay there. Leo The country that Otto Walter (consultant) He conducted a study on “Toxic heads”, with thousands of employees of all sectors and professional categories about which were the most irritating behaviors that had suffered from his superiors. concludes “the 49% of respondents he denounced the "disrespect" as the main scourge from the controls. "Prepotency", chosen by a 37%, "Management incompetence" (29%), "Lack of support for the team" (28%) or "absence of humane treatment" (25%) complete the picture of horrors”. A challenge.

your responsibility for team leadership cries a management plan and not just your own brand, but from professionals in your charge. double work.

The management process of a personal brand management as we know it Executive Branding, and the basic difference with a process Personal Branding It is this dual responsibility and a chameleonic symbiosis with the values ​​of the organization, vision and mission.

Personal Branding FAQ 8. How soon will I see results in a process of personal branding?

Million Dollar Question, whose importance reminded me of the brander staff Alicia Ro, recent winner of the award Best Blog personal brand 2017 (Congratulations heart, dear Alicia).

I think you already suspect what the answer: the results will come sooner or later based on the investment. I have had clients who have taken personal branding as a new competition soft on its agenda and others who have thought that six consulting sessions would bring them results in a few weeks.

What is investing? Does it refer to money? Investing means taking time to acquire new competition, It is like acquiring a habit. But who tells you they are 21 deceives days, it is not true (unless they are 21 days without sleep and with total dedication). It also refers to money, what fool anyone. If you hire a good consultant or mentor personal branding help you, acortarás you will accelerate the process and the outcome. If you also accounts a budget for graphic design, Web programming, management and content curation, network management, tracking KPI's, because you're going to accelerate, definitely.

From experience in this (I took from 2007), time to see results range from 6 months for highly motivated and 2-3 years ago for those who lead a more relaxed pace. When we compared to what it took to build Rome, We speak reasonable deadlines.

Personal Branding FAQ 9. ¿El personal branding es marketing personal?

Es marketing personal, but it is also much more than that. Branding is a very broad umbrella brand, among which is the marketing tools. All of identity would in a field between psychology (ideally) or coaching, away from marketing.

In my talks I usually raise the following simile: Personal Marketing is what I say about me. Personal Branding is what others say about me. Even if you think there is little difference, there is a gap between one and the other. Our goal, the main objective of personal branding is the recognition of others and their subsequent choice of our people. In a nutshell, they are others whom we “sell”.

Personal Branding FAQ 10. Is any personal brand is the same as personal branding?

If I translate the question into English, would “Is personal brand the same as personal branding?”. obvious. Isn't it?. The gerund branding indicates action. The personal branding It is the process of managing our own brand, whose main steps are self-knowledge, and visibility strategy. Personal brand (marca personal) the outcome of that process, in the form of emotional footprint we leave on others.

I hope I have clarified doubts and concepts with this second part of FAQ (2). I hope the coming weeks with the 10 other questions. Have a nice week!
