A Perspective On The New Age Of Interaction

As we can see around us the world is evolving. Conflict and mistrust can create new opportunity. How we interact with each other in the future will change our personal brands for the better. It is time we start saying “Lets have a conversation” and minimize conversation roadblocks.

Interacting with others on a personal level has become a challenge for many of us during the past decade. We have discovered fascinating new ways of being able to grow our own personal brands through technology, however the link between this and having a personal conversation with humility and gratitude has been eroded over the last decade and personal branding is needing a makeover.

  • A way to expand your brand without social media is finding someone you know the least in your class or at work. Maybe a professor you haven’t connected with or a manager in another department. Schedule a time to connect about their experiences both at work and at home. This will make your brand seen more real and authentic and in addition develop trust and understanding.
  • Hone in on your voice. When changing the direction of your personal brand think to yourself “How do I want to be perceived”? Finding your voice will help you build connections.
  • Find your Superpower! What is your passion or purpose? What is the next goal for you? What do I see that others don’t? If you can’t develop that 30 second elevator pitch it’s time to reflect and sit down and write out a 20 second mission statement.
  • Study the needs of others. By doing this you can better network and create meaningful conversations. Bridge the gap between home and work. Gratitude and humility will make you feel a boost of confidence.
  • “Powerful networking is not just about “you,” it’s about providing value to others first” — Adam Enfroy. By providing value to others you are creating conversation and less of a conversation roadblock.
  • Find the target audiences in your life. Your personal brand is well personal. Be authentic by being vulnerable. realize its ok to be wrong and not have all the answers. This will make others see you as a person that is approachable.
  • Think long term. Your reputation or ability to reshape your personal brand won’t change overnight. Start becoming more open to conversation and your reputation will grow and in the process the important people in your life will show.
