Organizational expert and motivational speaker Dr. Brandi Stankovic’s new book The Strategic MVP is an executive coaching handbook designed to help ambitious professionals become the most valuable person in their organization. The leadership guide combines key learnings and motivational messages from some of the world’s top CEOs along with weekly workshop-type exercises to help you reach all-star status.
“With the economy in recovery mode, many companies still don’t have the resources to hire their own leadership coaches,” says Dr. Stankovic. “The Strategic MVP is the solution for those organizations and executives, who can use this guide as their own personal leadership training to help figure out where they need improvement and how to take their careers to the next level.”
1. Develop Your Personal Brand
Similar to the brand of a company, your personal brand is the feeling and experience that people have when they think of you. Managing your personal brand can be one of the most important things you do as you progress in business. Your personal brand should articulate your values, story, message, and things that are important to you.
2.) Conceptualize Your Future
Successful people have a continuous focus on the future. They think about how the future will change and how they will be a driving force in that transformation. Imagine you have a magic wand that allows you to create the future you desire. How would it be different from today? World-renowned spiritual teacher Wayne Dyer has a popular saying “You will see it when you believe it, not the other way around…” this is also true for your career.
3.)Unleash Your Inner Nerd
Commit to being the best you can be through action, education and learning. Let your inner nerd flourish. Is there a degree or a next level of learning that you have always wanted to do? Learning needs to be a lifelong process in every part of our careers.
4.) Expand Your Network
Strive for quality not quantity in your networking efforts. Select and invest in people who care about the things that are important to you. These are the people who will help you achieve your longterm goals.
5.)Remove the Unnecessary
Everything you bring into your life either supports or undermines who you are and what you want to create. You are who you surround yourself with. Choose wisely. Surround yourself with friendly, driven and encouraging influences that positively affect who you are
