What a ride at Stephen Thomas'
Young Nonprofit Professionals last week!
My first talk of this format, I'm still a little rough around the edges you be the judge - the talk is only 10 mins, would love some feedback/coaching
The topic? Managing Brand You,
Tips on How to Harness Your Superpowers
One thing I think didn't come across was - why did I throw my tie?
Many people know me as "the suit guy". I've been in a suit since I was 19. It wasn't part of the uniform but yes, I even wore ties in High School.
It's my professional armour
And as much as that serves and gives me power on the "job" the time has come for me to engage in a more vulnerable way.
Spending time with consultants and creative types who dress with style and not by uniform - who dress to express - has created the desire to be that guy more often.
So! If you see me outside of work, help me "BE" the authentic aspiration I am encouraging others to be and - toss the tie.
What's your tie? Find out, check out some of the resources I recommended in the video, books and otherwise.
And as always, if I can be of help, connect.
It's not a catchphrase it's my way of life:
I am at your service.
