Building your Leadership Brand!

Rahul Shah

Have you ever thought about that? As a leader, you communicate all the time, as people constantly perceive your action and inaction. Whether you like it or not, you are building your legacy with every interaction with others. I call this "Legacy in Construction".

So the question is, what kind of legacy do you want to create? That's the Leadership brand you are creating knowingly or unknowingly. So the question is, what kind of Leadership brand do you want to make?

Building a Leadership brand takes time and effort. It's a deliberate attempt and can reap long term benefits. Creating a Leadership brand and living that brand is entirely different. One can let the Leadership brand build on its own, or you work hard to make it.

As you know, companies use brands to communicate the essence, purpose, and value of their goods or services to their stakeholders, who can range from consumers and customers to current and future employees and regulators. These brands create an image in the audience's mind, which in turn evokes specific thoughts and emotions. It represents a promise to your stakeholders.

Just like a company brand represents the image of a company, a Personal Leadership Brand embodies the impact you have on your followers and stakeholders—the emotional experience that comes from working with you.

The brand is the perception in the eyes of the 'We' holder. It's not about what we think about ourselves, but it is about how people perceive you, and therefore, it's not about your 'identity but your reputation. Identity is what you think about yourself, and reputation is the judgments made by others about you. I have seen leaders often worry about what they think about themselves rather than checking how their actions are perceived.

Although you convey your leadership brand through daily interactions, you may not know how others see you. Crafting a leadership brand helps you become self-aware of the leader you are today and the leader you strive to become. It's strategic. Like a product, your leadership brand embodies the impact you have on your followers and clients.

Many people hesitate to consciously build their brand as they find the exercise very artificial or don't spend time on it, or don't know how to begin.

It's not as difficult as it sounds to be. Start with your brand statement.

A strong leadership brand is more than a statement. It's the symbol of who you are as a leader, what you do, and how you do it from the perception of others. It evolves through your interactions with others as a result of the behaviours you exhibit.

'I want to be known for ……….. '(your value) 'so that I can …………' (your purpose)

Values and purpose tend to be timeless, but how you demonstrate them will change as you evolve in your experiences and career.

Paraphrasing the words of thought leader Simon Sinek, your purpose is your why. The cause or belief that gets you out of bed every day truly inspires you to do what you do. It's the incentive beyond a paycheck that keeps you committed to doing your best for the company, for yourself, and those around you.

Examples of some Leadership brand statements –

  • I want to be known for being a results-driven leader with high standards for myself and my team to develop others to think independently and perform at their peak.
  • 'I want to be known for having a character of commitment, ownership, humility, and integrity so that I can step up to a broader role and make an impact in my organization and on my future.'

Thus, creating and living your Leadership brand statement helps articulate your values and purpose, builds your confidence and enables you to impact the people and environment around you, thus leading to a high recall.

It will be a good idea to craft your brand statement and keep refining them by seeking feedback. It will help you work on how you want to socialize and, more importantly, live your brand in your day to day action.

As a next step, I suggest you identify two Brand coaches who can help you on this journey. Ideally, one from within the organization and the other external.

Just like we know that in communication and marketing, for a brand to work, people must know about it. For your Leadership Brand to be effective, it's no different: You have to declare it, socialize it, and publically live it.

Standard Xth - A Milestone or the Milestone!

Rahul Shah

I support parents, teenagers, and adults through life transition, career, mindset, and leadership development...

It is summer vacation time for school going students, though not for the ones in Standard 10 (SSC, ICSE, CBSE, IG) students. Their parents are already beginning to worry about their child’s success at the exams.
The buzzword has not lost its sheen over so many years. Generation X tends to demonstrate similar pressure and criticality as their parents did! I wonder if there will be any change once Millennial makes it as a parent. Students of standard X are merely getting Sundays off, and the rest of the days, they are busy shuttling between Maths to English classes. I am told that some of the schools have portions of 10th std from 9th std onwards.
I wonder where this will end. I just finished doing a session with a bunch of 10th Std students where I was invited. At the beginning of the session, I asked them what they expected to take away. Most of them said I would motivate them and help them manage stress. I was pretty taken aback that these young kids were using such words. I could feel the anxiety in them, and this was not in them but seemed it was put in them, and the levels were building up.
I wanted to make this session interactive, so I asked them what their challenges are and all of them said – Pressure, stress, peer pressure, competition. First, I thought I was speaking to leaders from the corporate office as I was surprised to hear words like this from students transitioning from 9th std to 10th std. Incorporate, we talk a lot about transitioning from an individual contributor to people leader, and I could feel the same amount of ambiguity, stress and tension in the eyes of these students. I didn’t stop there; I went further to inquire what message they wanted to give to their parents. It was surprising to hear what they told me. It seemed that they were yearning for their voice to be heard.
They said - Don’t compare, do not taunt at me, have some hope in me, give me some space, understand my world, stop pressurizing me. The sound of their voice bothered me and made me think about how to secure this young kid. People who have crossed this milestone know it is not The Milestone. How do we ensure that this year is given enough emphasis but not to the extent that it paralyzes the students?
Parents and the school play a significant role in setting the right momentum for the students. School and home should act as a foundation for building intellect and emotion, respectively. The focus should be given to developing intellectual capability and making students feel emotionally healthy, which will help in living a healthy balanced lifestyle. 10th std is a transition from school to college, and the focus should be given on how a child will transition from dependence to independence and how s/he should not misuse the freedom. Educate them on the distractions that may give them the false and temporary notion of excitement rather than just focusing on studies.

There are many Career Aptitude Assessment tools, from free tests to paid, from specific theory-based to AI-driven, currently available in the market.
If you want to know the right tool, it's often tricky unless thorough research is done. Yet, finding an accurate test is even more difficult because results vary from test to test.
So how do we know a test is accurate?
The results are often a reflection of yourself, and the results should bring out your interests themselves. Certain times some strengths are highlighted, which you may not have noticed yet.
Also, as you upgrade yourself with skills and knowledge, the results would slightly shift, but a general trend would remain. Career tests can be thus considered an assurance for the decisions you have made for yourself or as a direction indicator if you cannot decide for yourself.
The results, however, need to be continuously compared with the job market relevance and should be compact with your particular constraints, if any.
Talking to people with exposure in specific fields will help you understand the course you may want to take. Platforms like Quora can be used to ask questions.
However, taking help from a career guide will give new perspectives as they would have gone through many such cases and can share with you related decisions made.
Best Wishes for a bright future!

Be it in our school, our office or, in our life, we often come across some who are struggling to keep up to the expectations.
Have you thought about them?
They are lovely human beings, but somehow they are a misfit in the group.
Do you know why?
It's because they are not in their fair playground. They look misfit, as they haven't yet find the right area of their strength.
Why do you think it happens to them?
They lacked information, they lacked the motivation to think differently, and they couldn't take risks. Sometimes it also happens that they know their strength, but the alternative is unaffordable for them. Or, by the time they found their playground, it was too late for them.
Have you been in such a situation?
It is a terrible situation to be in. But there is always a way out by knowing the strength, aptitude, and interests and getting promoted to a new role.
How does it feel?
Like a winner? Here is a chance to help such people in your life who are currently left behind.
Career counselling gives the platform for people who are left behind to discover themselves and find their fair playground.

Divya Ji, though these types of issues, it is good if talk to get more details. By adamant, you mean not listening at all or not listening to a particular style like asking for study or eat etc. To take care of him/her, you need to get involved with him slowly. How old he/she is? If you try to change, this will not work; you need to replace his/her habit with a new one. I wish you could provide some more details. I should be able to offer you a good plan.

Hey Divya,
I hope you are doing good and things are sunny at your end.
To answer your question, I joined back work after a long break. What helped me the most was a five-minute introspection before my meetings and presentations to organize my thoughts and conceptualize what I will communicate. Getting nervous about joining back after a break is expected. Once you get to the routine of things, it eventually fades away, and your confidence returns. Till then, try the tricks that I told you.
Break a leg!!
Adios!

Today students are perplexed about selecting subjects; they either follow their parent's advice or their friends. The problem comes when they complete their education and enter the job market. There they find that high marks and degrees are not at all relevant. As a result, even after attaining a good percentage and degrees, they grab petty jobs and curse their lives.
Today, students must analyse themself for their genuine interests and then research the job market aligned with the same.
Skills are paid richly; we must spend our time during the education years to attain skills and update the same regularly.
There are many advanced techniques available which can tell about ourself; we should use them through an experienced counsellor who has exposure to real job market preferably the working or retired executives to know the ways.
We must enter the job market prepared and keep a second option open as there is very tough competition.

We have become so engrossed in the daily and hectic schedules that we fail to notice things that are often so plainly visible. Whether it is the beauty in our surroundings, the emotional triggers of other people, or our repeated error patterns - we are often unable to see beyond things in our daily schedule.

Here are some simple steps to enhance your observation skills and make them razor-sharp:

  • Live in the moment: Observe the changes in the surroundings no matter how minute. Doing so would also enhance your memory, and you would soon see patterns in the occurrence of certain things.
  • Observe and reason: Now that you have observed something - ask yourself the significance of that observation. Logically analyze the situation and pinpoint the purpose behind it.
  • Observe and solve: Next, see if there is an issue attached with your observation. Can something be improved through your reasoning? Ideate and solve everyday problems.
  • Observe and deduct: What are the things/habits that are cluttering your life? Observe and remove them from your life. There would be things that add no value to your life, yet they stunt your growth.
  • Observe and enhance: If you feel something is 'good' - observe and think of ways to make it even better. Be it a situation, your behaviour, or any other aspect around you - look for ways that you could enhance them.

Observation skills are something honed with time and consistent practice. All you need to do is, be present at the moment and look at every minute happenings.

Life is not a bed of roses, and there are bound to be a fair share of triumphs and setbacks.

Setbacks represent that you are getting a step closer to being successful. They are indicators of your hardwork. Instead of being disappointed by failures, all that is needed is to figure out how to get better.

  • Own up the setback: When you put the responsibility of a failure on someone else's shoulders, you would always try to do the same the next time you face a setback. The most significant win in a setback lies in taking responsibility for what happened. Avoid blaming the situation and work towards making it better in the future.
  • Accept the setback: Avoid sugar-coating the situation by saying, "Oh, it's nothing. I'll do well next time." Instead, try saying, "I'll identify the issue". Give yourself a chance to think deeper and accept whatever happened. Simply speaking, "It's not an issue" encourages your mind to avoid facing setbacks in life. How then would you learn from it and not make the same mistakes again?
  • Identify the issues: Evaluate what went wrong and the area that caused the setback. Not doing so would increase the chance of encountering the same setback time and again. This would end up making you feel like you are incapable of doing the concerned task.
  • Focus only on the outcome: Focusing on the effort serves little benefit. Focus on the result and manoeuvre your attempt to achieve those results. It will encourage you to think divergently and redirect the steps to accomplish your aim. Avoid putting more focus on the effort if you are unsure of the outcome.

Someone who does not work towards something never fails. Look at failure & setback with optimism. Ask yourself - 'Has anybody who did not encounter failure ever succeed?'
