What's my brand?

I was asked during the week to briefly explain "Personal Branding" to a  business start up class.
I am conscious that many explanations are vague, abstract, and just confusing.
My effort to explain it usually goes along the lines "that it is every thing you do" which is correct.
So I went with intuition over procedure this time and showed everyone this Jpeg, rather than use a class room syllabus answer. Turned out to the right thing to do. I was surprised by the amount of people that basically said " At last, now I get it". Here is the picture and no thousand words!

Who am I?

We often get asked some of the big questions like, who am I in the entire
process of career management and my working life. The short answer is that
we do not answer that question, you do!.
Human beings possess the unique psychological ability to self-reflect.
This capacity for introspection, or reflexive consciousness, extends to all
human activities in all domains of life,from work to play and rests
“at the heart of the self” . The social psychologist Roy Baumeister  argued
convincingly some years ago that for nearly as long as we human beings have
self-reflected, we have confronted four fundamental problems of selfhood across
these and other life spheres:
(a) self-knowledge, or how we understand ourselves.
(b) self-fulfillment, or how we construct meaningful and purposeful lives.
(c) self-definition, or how we construct an identity that both distinguishes
     us from and connects us with others
(d) self-in-relation, or how we interact and cope with the social
     contexts and conditions in which we live.

Each one of these problems of selfhood retains deep historical roots in both the
Eastern and Western traditions. These long-standing problems of self continue to engage
scholars across psychological specialties, and I am sure will as long as we have human
development. At Affinity, we believe your career and your life should travel on similiar
paths, but not neccessarily the same path.

Strategic Management

Strategic Management

We are very proud to deliver the only short course on strategic management available in Ireland. This course has been designed to be delivered in house and is specifically tailored for the Irish multi national IDA high value manufacturing and services sector. The programme is delivered over 20 hours as an integrated format over modules decided by the client. Strategy only works when everyone is on the same page and for this reason we offer this programme for each management forum to take advantage of this unique opportunity. It is fundamental knowledge that companies that have a strong foundation and understanding of strategy and how it shapes future sustainable success are the business units that achieve prolonged success within the greater company structure. Simply put, the business unit that talks the language of the CEO attracts the greatest interest and capital input. Success is always built on strategy. See a sample of our strategic training work.
