EPIC: The Art & Science of Building an Influential Personal Brand

Hosted by:
Angad Arts Hotel Logo

Whether you're interacting with your clients, leadership team, internal stakeholders or external contacts, the ability to win respect, influence people and cultivate cooperation is absolutely essential to your success. You must create an authentic brand in order to be viewed successfully when dealing with your stakeholders, internal or external, to create a positive outcome.

Your personal brand is how others perceive you. It impacts how others work with you and the opportunities that will be afforded to you. Understanding how people perceive you is vital to succeeding in your role and it is connected to your ability to influence others. During this program, Lethia will share practical strategies to help you build an E.P.I.C. and influential personal brand, leading to success in managing all stakeholders.

  • E - Exposure is all about who knows about you and the work you do. Gaining visibility inside and outside your organization is essential to building your brand and creating future opportunities to grow and become successful.
  • P - Performance is about the projects you are assigned and the quality of the results you deliver. Your credibility as a key contributor is established through your performance.
  • I - Image is all about what other people think of you. It is the thoughts, ideas and perceptions they hold in their head about who you are. How you consistently show up shapes other's perceptions of you and your ability to get the job done. Every interaction you have with others either enhances or detracts from your brand.
  • C - Confidence is all about your belief in your ability to perform at a high level and make meaningful contributions to your organization.
