Transformations I Provide During A VIP Day

I pick a combination of **three** that best deliver the results for you during our day long intensive.

 

Below is a menu of exercises I choose from when discovering your personal brand.

Core Values Exercise

In a world that often demands we prioritize external success and recognition, it’s easy to lose sight of the values that give our lives meaning and purpose. Our Core Values Exercise offers a structured way to discover what yours are

Key Features of the Exercise:

  1. Comprehensive Values Inventory: Begin with our curated list of 50 core values, a comprehensive collection that represents the breadth of human motivation and purpose. This diverse list ensures that all participants can find values that resonate deeply with them.

  2. Structured Selection Process: Through a guided process, you will select 10 values that feel significant to you. This initial selection is just the beginning of your journey towards self-discovery.

  3. Focused Narrowing: The challenge continues as you narrow your selection to 5, and then to the top 2 core values. This step requires introspection and honesty, as you peel away layers to reveal what is truly central to your identity beyond the workplace.

  4. Beyond Work: Our unique approach emphasizes identifying values that define you outside of your professional achievements. By stripping away work-related identities, you get to the heart of your personal ethos, uncovering the values that guide your decisions, relationships, and sense of self.

  5. Practical Integration: Discover strategies to integrate your core values into every aspect of your life. Learn how to make decisions aligned with your values, improve your relationships, and live with authenticity and integrity.

Who is this for?

Key Features of the Exercise:

1. **Discover Your Brand Essence:** Through a structured exercise, we help you identify the one word or concept that people associate with you when you’re not in the room. This could range from being known as a “Strategist” akin to Tim Ferriss with his “Four Hour Work Week,” to a “Motivator” like Mel Robbins and her “5 Second Rule,” or an “Empath” reminiscent of Brené Brown’s focus on vulnerability.

2. **Trusted Feedback Circle:** We guide you in selecting six individuals from your network—be they former employers, colleagues, or current clients—who are known for their honesty and constructive feedback, not just those who agree with you. This diversity ensures a well-rounded view of your current brand perception.

3. **Comprehensive Questionnaire:** Our program includes a carefully crafted set of questions that your chosen circle will answer, covering everything from the immediate impression you make when entering a room, to specific areas where you excel and aspects you could improve upon.

4. **Skill Enhancement Insights:** Based on the feedback, we pinpoint key skills you can hone to elevate your personal brand and effectiveness in your role or industry.
