Make the core of the personality visible
The core of a personality mark is often a combination of professional, methodological and personal skills. Sometimes they can not be analyzed in isolation. Thus, persons who have grown up in an international environment usually have not only the technical advantage of speaking several languages.
They also have intercultural competence, which many perceive as personal strength. But the focus of a brand can also be based on a special expertise: A person who has a very substantial factual knowledge and is always up to date, should emphasize this as a brand property.
Character strength as markers
It is quite possible that others will also learn to trust it, according to the motto: If my colleague does not know the rule, it does not exist. Conversely, a character strength can also become a brand core. This is the case, for example, if someone can adjust himself to different mentalities even in tricky situations and act diplomatically.
Such a colleague is the ace in any difficult negotiation - provided others see this competence. How, then, is it possible to define a personality brand with radiance?
