Learn More About the Three Primary Pillars of the Framework

Pillar 1. Clarify Your Value Proposition

Your LinkedIn profile is an amazing marketing and branding platform to distinguish yourself and demonstrate how you stand out from others in your field. An effective LinkedIn profile:
  • Helps recruiters determine if you are a good fit for the positions they're trying to fill,
  • Helps your existing connections and colleagues better understand what you stand for and how they can share your profile and support your career goals,
  • Helps frame and define the key value proposition that you offer through the work that you do, and clarifies the most important and useful skills and abilities that you offer and can provide.
The most important success factor of your revised profile will be your willingness to "niche down" and focus your career direction on a specific set of valuable and useful solutions that you deliver to your employer, client, or customer.

Your skills, abilities, and accomplishments are all great, but your target connection needs to know what you are best at actually delivering. 

In revising, updating, and optimizing your LinkedIn profile, we will accomplish the following:

  1. Turn your Headline section into a strong and engaging portfolio statement that reflects the roles you perform in your work, as well as the important distinguishing qualities of your experience and skills. Your Headline should be the "hook" that catches the reader's attention and makes them want to read more of your profile.
  2. Make your About section an eloquent expression of who you are, not simply what you do. People want to know what kind of person you are behind your skills and experience. The About section is your opportunity to share why you do what you do. Using a proven framework for the About section, along with helpful examples of successful profiles that follow this formula, we will turn your About section into a compelling statement that captures the unique aspects of your personality as well as your business ability.
  3. Update your Experience section to include the key bullet points from each of your positions. These include:
    • The skills that you used and learned,
    • The people you reported to and the nature of your reporting relationship,
    • The clients, vendors, or customers that you interacted with and the successes you achieved, including metrics and ROI, if/where applicable,
    • Other significant achievements and/or takeaways from each position.

Further, if you have been uncomfortable pitching yourself or talking about your accomplishments in the past, revising your profile will eliminate that discomfort or fear. Everything will now be laid out in terms that you have thought through and can stand behind.

Pillar 2. Activate Your Network

In today's fast-paced and constantly-changing professional environment, networking is the most effective way of building a sustainable career. While applying to open positions is a time-worn tactic, networking is a long-term strategy. With up to 80% of open positions filled through referrals, not through resume applications, your primary job search goal is to be one of the people personally referred to the hiring manager you want to work for.

This framework encourages you to adopt an attitude of giving to your network. Engaging in this manner will help ensure that you are perceived as a generous and informed resource, not as a "taker" who is only interested in getting help from others.

Our coaching will help you set up the two main aspects of your networking and engagement practice:

To activate and build your network, you will:
  1. Organize and categorize your existing connections into three different groups.
  2. Create a target list of 2nd level connections based on your goals.
  3. Set up a tracking spreadsheet to set goals and monitor engagement for your current (and future) priority contacts.
  4. Create one or more customized networking campaigns to research companies, target new connections, and generally become more educated and aware of what is going on in your field.
  5. Create a series of message templates to use when conducting outreach to new connections.

3. Design Your Thought Leadership Strategy

Your target employers, clients, or customers need to know who you are and what you stand for. Build their trust by engaging with others on LinkedIn, on social media, and via industry organizations and events. Your reputation as an expert and a resource will bring more opportunities to you.

Thought leadership is about standing up for what you stand for. You will design your thought leadership practice to only focus on the most important issues in your field from your point of view.

Actively participating in conversations and information exchange about key industry topics and issues is an important way to build relationships and turn simple contacts into colleagues and advocates for the value proposition that you represent.

We will work together to make sure that the 3 - 5 topics that you choose are relevant and important, and cover the primary problem/solution areas that your value proposition addresses. In so doing, you will always be "on message," and present a consistent presence that everyone in your network will understand.

We will also work to decide which online platforms and other organizations will best serve this agenda - and how often and in what ways you will contribute your ideas, insights, and prescriptions.

The main steps you will take are:
  1. Develop content criteria for the topics or categories you will engage in - and the consistent attitude or persona you will adopt in your communications,
  2. Research, join, and engage with LinkedIn Groups that relate to your profession,
  3. Establish and subscribe to information sources (Google Alerts, trade and industry press, Research firms, consulting firms, Academia newsletters),
  4. Create a weekly routine to check in with your Groups, follow people of note in your field, and post articles, events, or other pieces of relevant information,
  5. Identify and connect with professional organizations in your field where you can make contributions, join groups, plan activities, and generally participate as a community leader.
  6. (OPTIONAL) Review software posting tools, queuing software, spreadsheets, to-do apps, or note-taking apps to help you more efficiently track, collate, queue, and post your thought leadership information.

Here's What You'll Be Able To Do After Completing This Program

Confidently share what you do, why you do it, and the value you deliver.

Never feel awkward or self-conscious about answering the question: "So, what do you do?' or "Tell me about yourself."

Make a strong and positive impression in every job interview, informational interview, or "elevator pitch."

Always have something to say or a smart question to ask when you meet a new contact, or attend an industry event.

Effectively on-board onto any new job or consulting gig because you know what you do and what you deliver.

Perhaps most importantly: you will have a career plan that extends out over the next 5, even 10 years, with the ability to discern whether every opportunity, offer, or decision is "for you" or "not for you."

Always know that whatever you do or wherever you are, you're going to be on track to achieve your goals and live and work the way you want to.

I love working with my clients

I've been blessed with a fascinating, if somewhat tumultuous career. I've worked with some of the top creative minds in the entertainment world, including movie stars, directors, great artists, teachers, and even a charismatic ex-con.

I've pitched startup decks to Silicon Valley VCs, scouted film locations in Zimbabwe and Thailand, and survived a near crash of a helicopter in Australia's Kakadu National Park.

But the greatest personal satisfaction I've received to date in my career is the experience of working closely and personally with my career coaching clients.

Their commitment to finding their inner purpose, and their dedication to crafting a compelling narrative to fuel and inspire their next stage careers often leaves me speechless and in awe at the end of a session.

SubHeadline About Why Your Course Is Valuable

This section is all about price anchoring. In a moment, your visitor will be seeing the price of your online course, so you want to begin talking about the value of your course in this section so that when they finally see the price, they feel that it is reasonable.

This section is not required, but it is common on Sales Pages for online courses, especially if they are highly priced.

“If you do want to include this section, help the visitor by explaining how the alternate solutions to their problems can cost much, much more than your course. 

Perhaps you want to tell them what it costs to get this equivalent level of teaching at university. Or perhaps you’ll tell them how much it would cost to get private coaching from you for a few hours.

This section works best if you directly list monetary numbers, such as $5000. Anyone skimming the page will immediately stop when they see a dollar sign and read the text around it. When they realise this is not the course price, they’ll keep scrolling until they do find the course price
