Reinventing your Personal Brand
I often talk about “Reinventing your Personal Brand".
Sounds pretty complex, but here is a quick and easy way to get started!
When you are picking up responsibilities in your workplace - in the beginning of a new year or even quarter, try this magic formula:
1) Identify your strengths and pick up projects in line with your core competencies- Pick up 60% of your projects in your 'Comfort Zone'. These are projects that you find 'easy'- you have done them before and you can ace them again.
2) Take up 40% of your projects in your courage zone. These are things that make you 'uncomfortably excited'! You could completely mess this up, since this is a brand new challenge for you!
The trick is to step out of your comfort zone and into your courage zone! So that at the end of the year/quarter your courage zone becomes your comfort zone and you draw another courage zone around yourself! This way, you never stop growing!
