I studied to become a Reach Personal Branding Strategist with William Arruda and each year he shares his top 10 personal branding trends.
William says “When Tom Peters coined the term “personal branding” in his prophetic article “The Brand Called You” in 1997, he was describing a world of work where employees think of themselves as brands and use all the same assets, resources and tools that corporate brands have to remain relevant and achieve their goals. Well, nearly 20 years later, Mr. Peters’ vision is coming to fruition, spurring many exciting trends for 2015. In 2014, the groundwork was visible across multiple communication platforms. Many aspects of the world Tom Peters described became commonplace. Paired with the impact of digital, the scene is now set for important transformations in the year ahead.”
His report covers these 10 areas
1 The Social Organization: Employees Build Their Brand in Bits and Bytes
2 Time Trumps Money: Individuals See the Value of Outsourcing
3 Viva la Video: Everyone’s Ready for Their Close Up
4 Coaching for All: It’s Not Just for the C-Suite Anymore
5 Smaller. Faster. Simpler. Better.
