Harness the Power of LinkedIn for Your Career

What’s Different about this program:  

Some programs focus only on LinkedIn.  This program focuses on building a foundation about YOUR unique value proposition that you can leverage to promote yourself on LinkedIn.

  1. You will create a robust LinkedIn profile that will make you stand out.
  2. Learn the amazing power of LinkedIn as a networking tool to build your career network moving forward.
  3. You will also learn how to connect with companies and corporations you have an interest in, as well as affinity groups in your discipline.
  4. You will build a network and develop an accountability partner to work with you through promoting your career for the future.  
  5. You will learn to build a following in your industry by becoming a persuasive thought leader.

This course is for you if:

  • You have a profile on LinkedIn as an electronic resume, but not much else.

  • You don’t know what your career brand is, and maybe have never considered it.

  • You may have heard about Gallup Strengthsfinder but aren’t sure what your career strengths are.

  • You know your strengths but want to understand them in the context of career success.

  • You have not yet figured out how to bring strengths and career brand in to harness the power of LinkedIn.

  • You don’t have the time to network and not sure how to go about doing it, especially through LinkedIn.

  • You are concerned about possible changes in your organization and want to be prepared for your career future, ahead of time.

  • You might be actively looking for a new job and want to see how LinkedIn can help you to achieve that objective.

  • You want to learn more about becoming a thought leader in your profession.

If any of these ring true, then this workshop is for you!

Let me guide you through defining your unique career brand, understanding your natural strengths, and using LinkedIn to promote them all.  

Your LinkedIn profile can be more than just a placeholder or social media resume.  It can be the vehicle to propel you into visibility as a thought leader in your industry or help you to attract the right recruiters/hiring managers, whether or not you are looking for a job right now.  It can also propel you within your current company by establishing and reinforcing your value proposition.

Join me in a self-discovery of your unique talents, strengths, and brand, with step by step guidance to create a winning LinkedIn profile.

  • Here’s just some of what we’ll explore:
    • Assess and interpret your core strengths as defined by the Gallup Strengthsfinder assessment.  What do these strengths mean to your overall career?
    • Understand your natural style and come up with strategies to fully express that authenticity.
    • Define a career brand.  This is your unique value proposition.
    • Use LinkedIn to bring it all together to promote yourself and your career.
    • Build out your career network with ease.

You will learn:

  • Your core strengths
  • Strategies for leveraging those strengths in your job/company
  • Definition of career brand and having a brand statement that you can use in conversations/networking
  • Step by Step, top-down instructions on how to build a winning LinkedIn profile, becoming a LinkedIn All-Star

Let me introduce myself:

I am a Career Executive Certified Coach.

My career spans some 30 years in corporate technology, with 24 of those years in leadership, and 12 of those in senior leadership for a Fortune 100 corporation.

I dared to leave the comfort of a corporate career to embark on my passion, Career, and Executive coaching as a solopreneur, leveraging my corporate business strategy into running a successful coaching business.

Coaching certifications include the Professional Certified Coach designation from the International Coach Federation and the Career Transition Coach Certification from Coach Training Alliance. I also earned a Master’s Degree in Organizational Effectiveness and Executive Coaching.

I am passionate about working with individuals/leaders on their careers (transition, advancement, fulfillment), as well as helping individuals to launch their new solopreneur businesses.  My philosophy is that all of us should think of ourselves as entrepreneurs, running our own careers as small business owners, wherever we work.
