    Learn a framework for personal career branding 

    What?

    This webinar introduces the framework SOAR for personal career branding. SOAR (Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, Results) makes it easier for us to advocate for ourselves because it takes the focus off of 'me' and instead has us think about how our strengths and values-based action contribute to others.

    Personal Career branding is how we communicate the value we contribute. Join this webinar to learn a framework to support the creation of your strategic and authentic career brand. We often engage in and compete in complex environments where establishing ourselves quickly is essential. Typically, there are two major hurdles we encounter when attempting to brand ourselves:

    1. Knowing how to ‘sell one’s self,’ which makes many people uncomfortable.
    2. Fear of pigeon holing oneself so narrowly that we get excluded from opportunities

    Why?

    While we may want to say, “Just give me a chance – I can do it!” it’s not the best way to break away from the competition. 

    Originally, Jackie Stavros PhD and Gina Hinrichs PhD developed the strength-based framework, SOAR, with strategic planning in mind. SOAR, at its core, directs us toward a strategic position where we can stand apart, achieve success, and sets us up to make a greater impact, while not attempting to be everything to everyone.

    We are being perceived whether we’re conscious or unconscious of it. The SOAR process helps us gain self-knowledge in a positive, evolving, energy-creating brand we feel ownership and confidence expressing publicly – specifically on Linkedin.com.

    Learning/Skills Objectives

    1. Understand Personal Career Branding and the importance of investing in creating one
    2. Understand the SOAR framework and apply it to Personal Career Branding
    3. Understand resources to complete the SOAR exercise on one’s own

    Maximizing Human Connectivity in the Digital Age

    The ACMP Midwest Change Connect brings together professionals from across the Midwest to engage in networking opportunities and impactful educational sessions from business and thought leaders.

    This conference engages a cross-section of professionals in change management, change communications, project management, business transformation and management consulting, as well as those responsible for leading or implementing the human, operational or technological aspects of growth, innovation and change.

    This conference elevates attendees thinking about proven methodologies, inspires ideas about new and emerging approaches and provides the tools necessary to navigate a world of possibility in light of local, national and global economic, cultural and geopolitical trends.

    Keynote Speaker - Paul Gibbons


    Paul Gibbons is an author, speaker, and consultant. His “beat” is helping business leaders use science and philosophy to make better strategic decisions, implement change, innovate, change culture, and create workplaces where talent flourishes. His most recent book, The Science of Organizational Change has been hailed as “the most important book on change in fifteen years.”

    Between writing projects, he consults, coaches, and speaks with businesses such as Microsoft, Google, HSBC, KPMG, and Comcast.

    The first 100 registrants will receive a copy of Paul's newest book on change, Impact!  21st Century Change Management, Behavioral Science, Digital Transformation, and Future of Work, due to be released later this summer!
