If you are not clear about who you are as a professional, others will make up their own image for you. Then they will broadcast that image.
Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2007 - Starting November 5th, Meloni Coaching Solutions will be offering a four-
week "Coachinar" with a new twist on personal branding. Meloni's webinar, "Your Professional Brand, Guard it With Your Life," looks at personal branding for executives and professionals in the workplace where personal branding is more about your reputation and character. Part coaching session, part webinar, this "Coachinar" is a whole new approach to the typical online learning experience.
What makes this personal branding webinar so different is the coaching the attendees receive from Meloni, as they participate in the sessions. Rather than listening and trying to reason things out by themselves, participants receive encouragement and insight that only a coach can give.
Reputation management in the workplace is a serious problem for anyone who is trying to climb the corporate ladder. It takes more than deciding how one's image is to be projected. "Your character is your own. Your reputation is defined by others. It is your job to make sure they get it right," explains Margaret Meloni, MBA, founder of Meloni Coaching Solutions. "If you want your management and associates to 'get' you, then first you need to understand just who you are."
Adds Meloni, "If you are not clear about who you are as a professional, others will make up their own image for you. Then they will broadcast that image." This is what happens to many people within the workplace. Too often, employees are projecting one image, and management is seeing another. This puts employees and management at odds with each other because neither one sees the true problem. Do any of these sound familiar?
- "I just don't understand what my management really wants from me. I get the work done, isn't that enough?"
- "I am a valuable resource; my work should speak for itself. But I am not getting the recognition I know I deserve."
Meloni's "Coachinar" can help with reputation management by using encouraging coaching tools to support an individual as they build their personal brand. Attendees will learn how to:
- Recognize their character. Decide who they are, what they represent and what they believe.
- Make it a priority to act in a way that leads others to understand their character. Their character and reputation are in synch.
The Meloni Coaching Solutions "Coachinar" will be a four-week course starting on November 5th from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. PST. For more information and to sign up for this event, go to: Your Professional Brand, Guard it With Your Life.
