How to Create Your Dream Career (By Using Your Stregths)
Developing a "personal brand" is increasingly important-if you want to create your dream career. The business marketplace is crowded with equally-talented people all competing for the career you want, so you need a way to STAND OUT. The best way to do this is to have a clear understanding of your strengths: those unique parts of you that NO ONE ELSE can replicate.
In this session, attendees will learn:
- Why strengths will be your best differentiator in the business world
- How to begin developing a personal brand by using strengths
- Why fixing weaknesses won't help you accomplish much of anything great
- How to leverage your strengths to transition into your dream role
