  • 1. Branding expert Sally Hogshead shares how to stand out at work by playing up your natural strengths. HOW TO BECOME MORE VALUABLE AT WORK BROUGHT TO YOU BY
  • 2. Hall of Fame speaker and branding expert Sally Hogshead created The Fascination Advantage, the world’s first personality assessment that measures what makes people engaging. Unlike other tests, hers is not about how you see the world — but how the world sees you. Sally is also the author of several books, including How the World See You and Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers to Persuasion and Captivation. Meet Sally Hogshead!
  • 3. Sally recently answered questions from members of Connect: Professional Women’s Network. Here’s some of her most popular advice.
  • 4. Should my personality type match my team members’ types? The best teams have a combination of personalities. If everyone on the team is extremely creative, they might fail in details and follow- through. If everyone is only detail-oriented, the team will lack big- picture thinking.
  • 5. I’m a natural leader. What tips can you give me for not always appearing to be in charge? Your team appreciates how you lead with warmth and detail. Don’t tone that down. Make sure others understand that the way you’re most likely to contribute is through constructive, organized and practical results.
  • 6. “Don’t change who you are in a role — find the role that allows you to become more of who you already are.”
  • 7. I loathe routine and love to find innovative solutions. What type of company best suits me? You can thrive in both a small or large company, but you will quickly feel stifled by bureaucracy or hierarchy. So no matter what size the company, it’s crucial that you find a role that supports you in being out-of-the-box, social and energizing.
  • 8. I’m an introvert, and my strengths—insight and reason—aren’t easy to convey in an interview. Any tips? Don’t force yourself into the bubbly extroverted personality type—you bring other qualities! Explain that you’re observant and calm, and that you help others stay on track.
  • 9. I like to think outside the box. How can I market my ideas in a way that non-visionaries can grasp? You don’t want to overwhelm others with your creativity, but you can be creative in how you apply it! Rather than doing something to promote yourself on LinkedIn, ask interesting questions, or have an untraditional profile picture.
  • 10. Can I make a good leader if I’m the structured, dependable, efficient employee on my team, but not necessarily innovative? You lead differently from a classic leader. You’re steadfast and composed. You see the problem, and you focus on how to fix it. Don’t water that down!
  • 11. I’m a creative thinker considering a career move that will have me starting at the bottom again. How can I stay stimulated? Creative thinkers want to focus on forward-thinking ideas, and they get bored easily without rapid stimulation. But you can find new ways to do mundane tasks. See if you can go faster, smarter, more efficiently. Challenge yourself to stay engaged.
  • 12. “If you’re not constantly improving on the work you do, the people you know and the brand you’ve created for yourself, then your market value goes down.”
  • 13. I’m a born listener, and not one to shove myself into the spotlight. How can I communicate my strengths in cover letters, job interviews and networking? Make sure job interviewers know that you soak up the details. You cut through confusion and give clear direction. You add value by providing information and insight.
  • 14. Is there a “right” and “wrong” way to promote yourself? There’s not one right way to promote yourself—except that you should be absolutely authentic. For instance, as an author, I’m comfortable sharing content but not comfortable pushing hard or selling. Your promotion should be in line with the rest of you.
  • 15. “You can be comfortable in your career or extraordinary. Which one are you going to be?”
