You can’t sit back and hope to grow. To realize your full potential, move higher, and feel great about what you do, you need to cultivate a personal brand. Take charge of your career—after all, it’s yours.
The rules have changed. You use to be able to put your head down and work away until you were tapped on the shoulder for your next promotion. Hard work was recognized and rewarded. But at a certain level of success, all of your peers are as capable as you and some of them are leaving you behind.

At the end of the session, you will have exercises, reference materials, and tools along with specific action items to complete. From sprucing up your online profiles to building your network, the takeaway activities ensure the workshop’s benefits extend far beyond the session.
Note, the Stand Out! program delivers value all on its own. But it gains power when paired with assessment tools such as Kolbe, CliftonStrengths, and DISC. The more insights you have, the more refined your brand becomes.
