Have you defined your personal brand? Are you consistently living your personal brand every day? Do you know how to balance between your personal branding and your corporate status as a spokesperson and corporate ambassador?
Going into a negotiation with someone who holds more power than you do can be a daunting prospect. Whether you are asking your boss for a new assignment or attempting to land a major business deal with a client, your approach to the negotiation can dramatically affect your chances of success. How can you make the best case for what you want?
“Today any company that isn’t rethinking its direction at least every few years—as well as constantly adjusting to changing contexts—and then quickly making significant operational changes is putting itself at risk. But, as any number of business leaders can attest, the tension between needing to stay ahead of increasingly fierce competition and needing to deliver this year’s results can be overwhelming.”
— John P. Kotter, “Accelerate!”, Harvard Business Review, November 2012 Accelerating change continues to impact every facet of business. To thrive long term, business leaders must make implementing change a core competency in order to capitalize on our changing world instead of merely trying to adapt to it.
Holding a position of leadership doesn’t make you a leader.
Just observe political candidates who jump in front of a poll-tested parade and call themselves the leader. Or take a look at beneficiaries of large fortunes who assume they wound up on third base by hitting a triple. Or consider those who made it to the top through self-promotion. Finally, watch tyrants who maintain their power by intimidation. Having title, office, votes or guns does not alone make one a leader.
All these pseudo-leaders confuse positions of leadership with true leadership. As poseurs, sooner or later, most fail – either personally or institutionally, obviously or insidiously. But, in their grasping for power, they don’t just diminish the lives of those condemned to follow them. Their style of position-dependent leadership often comes to haunt their own lives.
