The Personal Brand in Driving Success

The Personal Brand in Driving Success | Learning | Scoop.it
Defining your proposition and message, and living up to it, will contribute powerfully to your career progression. And when you get to the top, don’t think you need to change your approach. Brands exist in the hearts and minds of the people who use them, and if you suddenly try to change them, you alienate the customer, which doesn’t do you an awful lot of good.

Great Leadership Isn’t About You

Great Leadership Isn’t About You | Learning | Scoop.it
The most effective form of leadership is supportive. It is collaborative. It is never assigning a task, role or function to another that we ourselves would not be willing to perform. For all practical purposes, leading well is as simple as remembering to remain others-centered instead of self-centered.

Required Reading: 10 Books We Read For Class That Will Change Your Life - Huffington Post | Learning | Scoop.it
“ Required Reading: 10 Books We Read For Class That Will Change Your Life”Huffington Post No summer, no matter how sunny and fun-filled, can last forever, as kids must painfully remember every year with the return of back-to-school shopping and early-morning alarms. Now that back-to-school season has rolled around once again, kids everywhere are engaging in a time-honored ritual: pulling out the school summer reading lists they've been ignoring since June and groaning with dismay and panic. But it doesn't have to be that way! Sometimes reading books we're assigned to read, rather than those we would pick up on our own, can be a blessing rather than a curse. It can lead us to unexpected treasures, introduce us to unfamiliar and unexpected points of view, and challenge us in surprising ways. HuffPost Entertainment's team rounded up their absolute favorite required reading from their school years and revealed what made those assigned books so memorable.

(From the article): When you get people in alignment with purpose, the alignment of specific goals and strategies will come much easier. But perhaps more importantly, when this clarity and meaning is achieved, the perspective of every team member will shift from “opportunity is nowhere” to “opportunity is now here.”

11 Startup Skills You Won't Learn in School

While some people knock advanced degrees, many entrepreneurs benefit from formal business training. But there are certain things even the best programs don't usually teach (or teach well) that are critical for you to master.Eleven founders from YEC name the startup skills that only on-the-job experience can equip you with:1. Startup-Style LeadershipSmall teams are a totally different beast than a corporate environment. You have one person filling multiple roles, no clear ladder for advancement, and people who often have to train themselves. Employees in startups need to be much more empowered and forward-thinking than in traditional companies. It's not something that is taught in school.--Laura Roeder, LKR Social Media2. The Power of NetworkingA large part of success in business comes from the people you know and the power of your network. Schools don't talk about growing and cultivating networks or the many facets of networking (actively or passively), but everyone has a network and it would behoove students to learn how to maximize them.--Darrah Brustein, Network Under 40/Finance Whiz Kids
3. Grit in the Face of Failure
You cannot learn grit in a classroom. Being an entrepreneur is about making the effort to create something from nothing. You can learn theories and best practices in a classroom, but you cannot learn the grit and dedication it takes to see your vision to the end. So much of success is in the willingness to invest 100 percent of your energy in the face of great uncertainty, and to wake up the next day ready to do it again. The path is not smooth and you will take your lumps. Grit is about falling down and getting back up, again and again. You can't learn that in a classroom.--Andrew Thomas, SkyBell Technologies, Inc.4. The Loneliness of Being a FounderNot to sound all melancholy here, but being a founder is lonely because all of the bucks stop with you. There is no one to complain to (negative feedback should only go up) and your job is to create solutions and constantly pitch in a positive light. "Never a bad day at a startup," a VC recently told me. That creates a barrier between a founder and the rest of the world around them. It's an interesting challenge, and finding a support system of mentors and advisors is crucial.--Trevor Sumner, LocalVox5. It's a Marathon, Not a SprintSchools breed ambitious workers who run toward the finish line and try to answer every question right first above all, but this is simply not the best approach in the real world. There will be lessons you only learn by looking back, and there will be long droughts filled with disappointment. Instead of wallowing in that, reassure yourself that you're working toward a larger goal. You're in it for the long haul, and that is more valuable than any short-term victory.--Rob Fulton, Matikis6. How (and When) to ScaleNo school can teach you when it's the right time to expand your business, make new hires, and take on more responsibilities. A lot of the time this will come from a gut feeling and the strategic relationships you have built. No textbook can teach you this skill.--Jason Grill, Grill Media | Sock 1017. An Effective Sales ProcessFor all that you learn about marketing, they don't teach you about effective sales. Nobody teaches the process from prospecting to suspecting, to lead development and nurturing, to closing the sale. --Jon Cline, Rokit SEO8. HustleYou can learn it. But you won't learn it in school. --Patrick Vlaskovits, Superpowered9. Product Design and CreationYou can learn marketing theories and business operation strategies in school, but school can't teach you what to sell. You need to understand how to identify the market and how to create a product that your market will consume. This is very hard to teach, and usually comes into effect by someone stumbling upon it or being in the right place at the right time. I do think it's a great exercise to design MVP products or even just landing pages that are designed to promote an imaginary product. These really bring the product to life and can teach you a lot about what product creation is really all about.--Dave Nevogt, Hubstaff.com10. AdaptabilitySchool by nature is very static, with a built-in roadmap for how to graduate. It does not teach you how to scrap a roadmap and change your destination, as entrepreneurship often dictates. Learning how to adapt is essential to having even a chance at success in being an entrepreneur.--Phil Chen, Systems Watch11. How to Live With PressureIn school, the feeling and emotions that accompany stress come and go depending on tests, quizzes, and assignments. You stress, you take the test, then you are free to breathe a sigh of relief. Entrepreneurship is living with the fact that there is no sigh of relief, ever. Instead you learn to live with stress, you acknowledge it, and you learn to cope with it daily. Learning to live with stress and pressure is something no one can teach you but a challenge you have to face and overcome within yourself. --Kim Kaupe, ZinePak
