So you’ve been working in your industry for years and consider yourself to be highly skilled in your area of expertise. You’re well-liked and a consistent high performer, so why aren’t you attracting the right clients, leadership opportunities or getting the recognition you desire?
The simple truth is, NO ONE likes working without reward. It crushes your spirit and prevents you from moving up the scale in your life and career. Even though you’re smashing it in the performance stakes, no one looks at you and screams “She’s leadership material” or “I only want to work with YOU”.
And then it happens… just to add salt to the wound you notice someone else is always getting that promotion, pay rise or winning the best business pitches! They are picked for the best development programs, the most high-profile public speaking events, and the most lucrative corporate opportunities.
Feels awful, doesn’t it? So maybe it’s time to command the respect you desire, conquer the challenges you face, and level up to make your mark in the world!
When Your Personal Brand And Executive Image Don’t Match With Your Leadership Potential, What Do You Do?
Women in leadership positions today (CEOs, top-tier professionals, and entrepreneurs) must raise their internal bar and find new ways of thinking for the new world.
So, if you want to move up the scale you must have executive presence, eloquence, a commanding and affable nature, and an “X-factor” about you. You must be able to sell your vision, flourish under fire, and always be able to successfully pitch yourself to leave a positive and lasting impression.
Your corporate image must speak of your leadership potential and your personal brand must show the world who you are without saying a word.
And lastly, you must exude the confidence and self-assuredness of the remarkable female leader you want to be!
Sound impossible? Not for one second do I want you to believe I am not describing YOU right now. Because you have everything you need right inside you to be an empowered female leader in your niche market or industry.
As a leader today you must change the way you think, take charge of your personal brand and corporate image, and harness your strengths to live and lead to your full leadership potential.
If you want to be seen and recognized as a courageous, confident and visionary female leader, entrepreneur or small business owner then the first step is to reboot and refresh your personal brand and executive image.
Many people think that just because you’re successful and skilled, you’re automatically confident. And that’s not necessarily true. Even the most intelligent, most adept woman in business can struggle with self-confidence issues.
Imposter syndrome is STILL alive and well today. And lack of confidence is one of the most challenging and damaging mindset issues we, as women, face today!
What Happens When You Lack The Confidence Of A Leader?
Case in point: I recently coached and mentored two extraordinarily talented top female professionals whose abilities and potential have been constantly overlooked for more significant leadership roles time and time again. And they’re DONE with it!
So, what’s the problem? Why are these amazing women (just two of the countless other women in leadership) getting constantly overlooked for the top roles? It’s simple: their professional colleagues, managers, or clients don’t see them as leaders. They are stuck in the worker bee mode and lack the confidence, leadership skills, and savvy strategies to power up their leadership presence and leverage from their personal brand.
Great leaders are meant to lead, not to be worker bees! They are visionaries and change makers.
To make an impact and influence others, you must have a balcony view and seek to see the bigger picture.
Don’t fall in the trap of getting stuck in the trenches and micro managing EVERYTHING. Instead, delegate, set boundaries and step away to give yourself the headspace to work on developing your personal brand vision and how to ‘sell it’ to others.
Don’t believe for a second that by quietly retreating into the background while you clear off your everyday to-do list is going to get you noticed.. It’s not! To be truly seen, heard and noticed you must switch-it-up from high performer to change maker and trailblazer and reimagine what it takes to win and lead in your profession or industry.
Displaying a lack of confidence, will foster lack of belief and confidence in YOU, your products, or services. People will think you’re not ready for a leadership role and that you cannot handle being in the spotlight.
Invest and devote time in your personal and professional development to building your confidence and powering-up your corporate image and leadership style.
