#SocialLeader: This is How Social Leaders Amplify Their Personal Brand

Branding has long been associated with companies, but with the advent of the social age every individual has a personal brand. Even if you haven’t cultivated your brand, it exists.

The question no longer is how to have a personal brand but instead how to amplify it? How do you guide and cultivate your brand to represent the best part of you and your company.

#SocialLeader chat is primed to answered these questions and a few others on Monday night. Here’s what we will be discussing:

Q1: Why is it vital that leaders today (notably us “blue unicorns”) carefully craft their personal brand? #SocialLeader

Q2: Agree or not? Why? “As a leader’s personal brand goes, so goes the corporate brand they represent.” #SocialLeader

Q3: How do you go about defining your personal brand in an authentic way? Where, exactly, do you start? #SocialLeader

Q4: What platforms and tools do you use to amplify your personal brand? What works best for you? #SocialLeader

Q5: How can we use content to stand out from the hoard of leaders establishing their personal brand? #SocialLeader

Q6: Social is a “digital handshake.” Now, how do we ensure new contacts become meaningful relationships? #SocialLeader

Q7: Which social leaders do you admire? Who has established an emulation-worthy personal brand? #SocialLeader

Q8: As #SocialLeader, when people view my personal brand I want them to see ______, ______ and ______.

Please join us for another rebellious discussion Monday night at 8pm ET.

  • There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
