You Are What You Tweet

Written by Duane Bailey
Do you remember when you first signed up for Twitter? It might have been for personal use. Or perhaps it was on behalf of a corporate or professional brand. You started with a blank slate, building from the ground up. You could be anything you wanted to be. You crafted a brief bio. You added a profile and background photo. You chose your words and images carefully because you wanted the world to know you in a certain way. Then you started tweeting about topics that interested you, your friendships with other people, activities you enjoy and happy moments in…
One of the easiest ways to monitor your online reputation is to Google your name and see what comes up. This is particularly important for job seekers, consultants and others who are marketing their personal brands online. You can refine your search by adding your skills, experiences or specialties after your name. By doing this, you're essentially using a long tail keyword and it's a more specific way for recruiters and other searchers to find more specific and relevant content about you. Long tail keywords can help boost your visibility in search results, add credibility to your brand and increase…
Strong relationships are built on trust and two-way communication. This is true of relationships online as well as off.

Over time, a bond of trust develops and a relationship is formed and nurtured.

I thought it quite clever how the teachers used the children's favorite characters to teach and demonstrate our voting. What can you do to make learning/training more interesting?  
When was the last time you updated your resume? Revised your LinkedIn profile? Networked with people you've never met before? Took a class to learn a new skill? Searched for your name online? If you can't remember, maybe your personal brand is in need of a makeover. The unexpected loss of a job, a decision to pursue a career change or an application for a promotion are all situations where a relevant and engaging personal brand can accelerate the achievement of your career goals. Your personal brand is the story that you tell with your resume, LinkedIn profile, business networking…
I read an article in Forbes recently, "Leaders Must Teach Employees 5 Unwritten Rules," by Glenn Llopis, a former C-suite corporate executive, entrepreneur and author. The article included five unwritten rules wise and selfless leaders should be teaching to their employees to ensure their organizations get the most from their talent pool. Aside from the impact on an employee's career and personal well-being, how a leader behaves and the example he or she sets can have a profound impact on the success of the entire organization. I know from my own personal experience one bad leader can completely change the…
