Why: Get at the Passion Behind What You Do •Psychology - People don’t buy what you do; they buy WHY you do it ▫The WHY talks to an area of the brain that controls behavior and decision-making ▫Your enthusiasm shines through - people biologically more apt to agree with you •Example: Apple (Simon Sinek)  We make great computers –they are beautifully designed, perform well and are easy to use, want to buy one?  Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo, thinking differently. The way we do this is by making products that are beautifully designed, simple to use, and user-friendly, and they happen to be great computers -want to buy one?
  19. 19. The WHY is Powerful • What grabs people’s attention and makes us memorable is not what we do, but why we do it • Why you do what you do - this reflects your passion • Most people skip their why – they see it as less significant • This is where our personal values, our vision, and our enthusiasm comes through

  22. 22. Your Presence is How People Form Their Impressions of You • Your brand should be consistent both online and offline, manifesting itself in how you answer your phone, introduce yourself, what you retweet, and even the community organizations with which you engage • It’s all about packaging - it must be authentic and it should ring true to who you are and how you live

  • describe who we are, what we most want people to remember about us. This is a short, hopefully catchy statement, what some may call an elevator pitch that prompts people to say, “I get this person.” Frank would describe her “who statement” as: I am a navigator. I help people find their way.

  • Why is it important for us to be active in social media? These social networks and communities offer a vehicle for us to nurture our relationships, tap the wisdom of our networks, monitor the latest developments in our fields, share our experience, and contribute to the conversation. It is also where the action is. According to a recent study conducted by Forrester Research, a staggering 100 percent of business decision-makers surveyed use social media for work purposes. Almost all (98 percent) read blogs, watch videos, and listen to podcasts); two-thirds comment on blogs and post ratings and reviews, and 79 percent of those maintain a profile on social networking sites “all in the context of their business activities.”

  • Dr. Wayne Dyer, the renowned self-help guru advises, And there lies the secret to how you reverse the impact of low confidence triggers in your life.

    Manciagli coached one client who worried that 14 years as a stay-at-home mom put her out of the running for a great job. “She thought she was going to be a mailroom clerk,” Manciagli says. Taking stock of the skills she’d picked up while raising her family and through her hobby of photography, Manciagli’s client fleshed out her resume—and got hired almost immediately as a college recruiter. “She could speak to college kids and had all the skills to be organized,” Manciagli says.
  • What I found is that having a gap makes very little difference in obtaining an interview. What matters more is how you explain a gap, be it in your resume, cover letter or interview. This is especially true for the stay-at-home moms and dads who take time off from their careers to raise children, as most are worried about how that gap will be perceived by recruiters and hiring managers.

    Keep in mind that it's okay to have gaps in your employment history and that employers are used to seeing them. You're not the first person who has had to take time off work, and you won't be the last.
    You want to explain the situation without going into too much detail. Employers don't need to hear specifics on your medical issues or what your mom was going through when you had to take care of her. They are mainly concerned about what you have been up to. You really want to show that you've been busy and how your experience will help you be a valuable employee. Be sure to include any volunteer work you have done during that time.
    “I have been working as a stay at home mom for the past two years. During that time, I have really perfected my time management and organizational skills. In addition, I have been volunteering at a local food bank where I’ve overseen and coordinated several food drives.”
