Her enthusiastic curiosity about people is a unique ability — and we all have them. These are core talents that are like a well that keeps on giving. Using these abilities each day gives us a sense of purpose, and is what makes us good at what we do when we are in the right job.
Learn to share the stories that highlight your unique abilities. Whether it’s for promotion or job search, they help develop your brand and they help people see what you are capable of.
Too many of us think that personal stories won’t sound professional. On the contrary; if you link them to your work impact, they provide depth and make people remember you.
Enjoy the summer and please play with sharing your unique skills!
All my best,
