Your Leadership Brand: Evaluating Your Impact, Communicating Your Value
Presented in partnership with Sara Canaday, Leadership Development Expert, Speaker & Author
Your personal brand is the synthesis of several key components - including visuals, messaging, demeanor, interpersonal skills and more. When these pieces come together they create the whole picture that the rest of the world recognizes as You. As professionals and leaders, we spend time, energy, and resources finding new ways to be more successful. We do whatever it takes to make our own personal stock rise in value. Or do we? Here’s the disconnect: The factors that pay the most dividends are the same ones that are most often overlooked or disregarded. They are the intangible factors that allow us to showcase our hard earned skills, present ourselves effectively, and effectively engage with others.
While some people might think about “personal branding” as a soft, somewhat-vague concept, Sara shifts that notion and turns it completely upside down. Applying a unique and quantifiable process, she helps leaders and professionals across the country analyze, measure and refine their brands in a way that increases their own personal market value (as well as the bottom-line benefits they bring to their companies).
Highlights in this webinar include:
- Identify the three critical components of your Leadership Brand
- Learn to identify your brand attributes, strengthen your influence, and communicate your value
- Respond to the demands that go beyond the technical and functional
- Formulate strategies that form the basis of a personal development plan

Presented in partnership with Brad Federman, CEO, F & H Solutions Group
Innovation. The introduction of something new and different. Period. End of story. Innovation is not the job of IT or marketing or even product development. Innovation is everyone’s job. Each person is a part of any change and each and every change, large or small, is a form of innovation. What sparks innovation in organizations? Why is it so difficult? Learn what it takes to create an innovative culture and how leadership may be inadvertently hindering it.
This program is designed not only to apply innovation principles and tools and increase critical thinking, but to explore how to bring them back to your team in a productive manner.
