  109. 109. LEARNING!!<br />
  110. 110. This is HARD WORK<br />But it will get easier…<br />
  111. 111. Take micro-learnings and crystallize them: PLE<br />Personal Learning Environment<br />
  112. 112. what you are doing (social media)<br />+ where you are doing it (tools)<br />+ listen and learning (best practices)<br />+ aggregating this learning (wiki, brain)<br />+ constructing learning artifacts (blog, google site)<br />________________________________________________________________________________________________<br />= Personal Learning Environment<br />

  121. 121. Personal Learning Environments…<br />Must include broadcasting and listening<br />AND learning<br />Are self-determined<br />Can include many tools<br />Require some aggregation to reduce noise<br />Need a blog, Google site or wiki to build learning artifacts<br />And these artifacts ARE your CV…<br />and why do I need one?<br />
  122. 122. You brand is what YOU say it is…<br />…but not on a CV <br />and why do I need one?<br />
  123. 123. Sure, a resume needs to be filled with unique accomplishments, and examples of impacting the bottom line.<br />It should be a Brand-focused resume<br />Your skills and unique value needs to transcend any particular industry.<br />
  124. 124. You need to become a Generalist AND a Specialist<br />You need to start learning other areas of the business, while mastering a specialty = you have to work much harder!<br />
  125. 125. You need to stand out<br />
  126. 126. Your brand is what YOU say it is…BUT not on a CV <br />The most a CV can do is define it’s “Personal Brand Positioning Statement” and use that to shape their internal and external messages.<br />BUT.<br />How youlive and present this message (medium and content), and MOST IMPORTANTLY, how OTHERSperceive this message are what DEFINES YOUR BRAND.<br />and why do I need one?<br />
  127. 127. So don&apos;t be the: Be the:<br />looking for a job person doing interesting things person <br />If you&apos;re busy doing things that matter to you/reward you, you&apos;re not only unique but you&apos;re also interesting.   <br />It might also help you better define the behaviors you want to engage in vs. the inert, static job description you otherwise might have thought you wanted.<br />Finally, doing what you&apos;re supposed to do will land you right in the middle of the pack of all the other people doing exactly the same things. <br />
  128. 128. Your Personal Brand is a reflection of your PLE<br />Communication skills<br />Socializing skills<br />Subject matter expertise<br />Are you publishing, retweeted, quoted, commented, recommended?<br />and why do I need one?<br />
  129. 129.
