COMMUNICATING YOUR PERSONAL BRAND IDENTITY ACROSS PROFESSIONAL CONTEXTS


DESCRIPTION


In today’s disruptive economy, the concept of personal branding has gained even greater traction than before as a self-management concept to position one favorably for a job opening, a promotion opportunity, a career switch, or simply for better workplace relationships. While many management workshops have leveraged on this concept as the pivotal starting point to create positive impressions, not many have mapped out a holistic communicative strategy to help participants convey the desired brand image across various professional communication contexts the way this workshop does.

LEARNING OUTCOMES


By the end of this workshop, participants will be familiar with the range of communication strategies and tools necessary to communicate a consistent and appealing personal brand identity across various workplace contexts.

The communicative strategies include:

  1. Structure of email writing and rhetorical devices (e.g. word choice, tone of voice) in communicating neutral, good news and bad news effectively; and
  2. 3Vs and 1A (Visual, Vocal, Verbal & Aural) in managing dynamism in informal talks and critical discussions.
