Your leadership brand is what you are known for – your reputation, your strengths, your principles – what distinguishes you from others. By deliberately creating a brand that represents what you want to be known for, you don’t have to live with a brand that others have developed for you. In this session, you will learn about the importance of branding to your success as a professional and as a leader and how to begin the process of defining your own leadership brand.
