Well maybe you don’t need to become a full blown story teller but you do need to at least able to tell the stories about your stuff, about your a career, goals and projects past and present.
Who do people know you as?
What are they most likey to say about you when asked who are you?
Every since I became Corey Graham 2.0 I began to appreciate the importance of storytelling on my professional lifes. It is especially invalueable to building your personal brandwhich extends into this mysterious realm of networking. When there a story for people to tell. You can be pretty sure of the impressions that persons are getting from others about you.
So you should find a compelling way to tell your story … Why leave it for people to tell it? To decipher what you are about? What is important to you? Why give people a chance to mis-interpretate you?
Yes, yes, I know, if someone wants to give you a bad rep, they will! You should have a disaster plan for that. However, you don’t want, the persons wanting to give a pleasant and accurate description of who you are, to have to guess about you. You don’t want them highlighting the services you are trying to phase out and downplaying the things that you want highlighted.
So tell your own story or someone will tell it for you.
What’s my story?
