Be an Advocate for Yourself :: Women on Business

Home About Contributors Contact Advertise Write for Us Submit a Guest Post Businesswomen Bloggers Directory Submit Your Blog Discounts & Resources Free Magazines and Publications for Business PR Newswire Jobs Career Center Education Center Submit a Press Release Businesswomen-News Books & Videos by Susan Gunelius and the Women On Business Team Suze Orman Personally Addresses Women on Business Readers Dec 28 Be an Advocate for Yourself By Bonnie Marcus A recent Catalyst study demonstrates that mentoring does not help career advancement to the degree that sponsorship does. Mentoring is defined as career advice and guidance and sponsorship is advocacy. Usually sponsors have more senior positions than mentors, and it is their responsibility to advocate for an individual and pull them up the ranks to a top level position in the company. The study shows that men receive more sponsorship than women and this has a direct relationship to the number of men promoted to top positions. Women receive more mentoring and, in fact, are sometimes “mentored to death” with no upward mobility. The recommendation from Harvard Business Review and Catalyst is for organizations to adopt formal sponsorship programs similar to IBM Europe. Companies now understand the impact of diversifying their talent pool, especially in leadership roles. However, the companies that have formal sponsorship programs are few and far between. High performing women need to take control of their own career advancement. They need to advocate for an advocate or sponsor. They need to be their own PR specialist every day. Here are some suggestions: Be proactive, intentional, and strategic. Communicate your intention to advance your career. Let others know within the organization that you are seeking a sponsor. Your mentor might be able to help identify and facilitate this. Create visibility and credibility for yourself in the organization. o Take on high profile projects. o Make sure your position has P&L responsibility. Identify your value proposition. What do you bring to the table? Develop your web of influence (key stakeholders, decision makers, influencers, connectors) to assist you in reaching your goal. o Build and leverage these relationships. Learn to communicate your value. o Talk about what you bring to the table and tie it to business outcomes and results for maximum impact. Broaden your influence outside the company. o Develop your subject matter expertise through social media, community organizations and board positions. Here’s the bottom line: you need to take control of your career. If you have the goal of sitting in the C-Suite, start by communicating this goal to others and find out how you can get a sponsor to take you under his/her wings and move you up the ranks. You need to advocate for yourself and create the visibility and credibility within the organization to get recognized and rewarded. Related posts: Is a Corporate Board Seat in Your Future?

Building Your Brand “Buddy The Elf” Style – Part 2 :: Women on.

Women on Business

Home About Contributors Contact Advertise Write for Us Submit a Guest Post Businesswomen Bloggers Directory Submit Your Blog Discounts & Resources Free Magazines and Publications for Business PR Newswire Jobs Career Center Education Center Submit a Press Release Businesswomen-News Books & Videos by Susan Gunelius and the Women On Business Team Suze Orman Personally Addresses Women on Business Readers Dec 08 Building Your Brand “Buddy The Elf” Style – Part 2 By Laura Nozicka Last week I talked about the first two steps of brand building: awareness and understanding, and developing brand associations and meaning. Just to refresh, if you have seen the delightful holiday movie Elf , you are familiar with the endearing qualities of child-like hope and wonder “Buddy the Elf” exudes. How endearing is your brand to your customers? What do you your customers believe and understand about your brand? Using “Buddy the Elf” as an example for the four steps to brand building, this week we’ll discuss steps three and four: developing brand identification and meaning, and developing relationships with customers. Here is a link to last’s week blog addressing steps one and two. [link]. Step 3: Branding Identification and Brand Meaning: What does Buddy mean to you? Now that you’ve had a chance to get to know Buddy a bit, what is your general opinion about him? Would you want to know him better? Do you trust him? Does he care about what you think and feel about him? Does it seem like he cares about you? Buddy is warm, exciting, unique, and fun. Branding is defined as a collection of unique associations that lie in the minds of your customers. What words do your customers associate with your brand? Do they fulfill an emotional need, want or desire? You may recall from the movie that the children accepted Buddy, trusted him, and cared about him, and he always made them feel special. As for your brand, how are your customers feeling about your brand now that your prospective customers have some knowledge about you from steps one and two? If they are feeling your brand understands them and their needs, is innovative, is a good value, and cares about them, they are now ready to jump in and interact with you. Are you ready?? Step 4: Brand Loyalty: Would you hang out with Buddy on a regular basis? After getting two thirds of the way into the movie, most likely, you are endeared to Buddy at this point…or are you? What would you miss about Buddy if he went away? How would his absence affect you or the children? Is there a replacement? This is the same for your brand. Brand loyalty is key to cultivating repeat customers who spread positive word of mouth feedback about your product or service. If you understand your customer and what keeps them up at night, you’re on your way to developing a deep emotional relationship with them providing you can deliver the promise in your brand message. The children, or even adults for that matter, aren’t “buying” Buddy because they need an elf in their lives. They are buying hope, nostalgia, and belief in something bigger…something they can’t explain that touches their emotional core. The majority of our purchases are emotional regardless of how rational we think we are being at the point of purchase. In the movie, Santa’s sleigh breaks down in Central Park and in turn, he begs Buddy to make the repair so that he can be on his way to deliver gifts around the world. Buddy states, “I’m not an elf Santa…I can’t do anything right!” Santa confidently replies, “Buddy, you’re more of an elf than anyone I ever met. And the only one I would want working on my sleigh tonight.” Be your customer’s elf…the only company believed to be able to do the job right and on time—the one they can’t do without and wouldn’t think about seeking out an alternative. How would you feel if Buddy failed at repairing the sleigh? What would you think then? How would your customers feel if your company let them down? Much of developing the loyalty factor comes from inside your business. How well is your staff living your brand? Are they offering customers the best experience? Buddy had an “affinity for the elf culture” which makes him believable and convincing. And it is expected that Buddy will come through with spreading Christmas spirit when needed each and every time. Be believable, build relationships, tug at the emotional core, and make them talk and wanting more. Sometimes “it’s all about believing and not seeing.” Cheers to successful brand building!
