Leverage LinkedIn

Description

We used to say it’s “not what you know, but who you know”. These days the emphasis is becoming more and more about who knows you.

So how are you leveraging LinkedIn to position yourself as the person that people need to know for your particular competence and expertise?

Are you on LinkedIn and struggling to grasp how to use it to help you:

  • position yourself as an expert that people need to know?
  • land the ideal job that you have been after for months?
  • build a business that attracts your ideal customers?
  • It may just be that like many people, you see it as a social media platform that is an endless waste of your time, or a place that should merely be a repository for your CV.

LinkedIn has become one of my favourite social media platforms, and an important component of my business strategy. But it was only after I started to understand its purpose a few years ago, that I really started to use it constructively.

So what is its purpose you ask?

From my perspective, LinkedIn is the equivalent of a 24/7/365 online conference where you can establish your presence through your profile (the equivalent of an exhibition stand)
through your engagement (the equivalent of chatting during coffee breaks) and
through your content (the equivalent of being the keynote speaker at the conference)

This critical shift in my mindset around what LinkedIn actually is, was all that it took to pivot LinkedIn from being a repository for my CV, to a platform for:

  • building professional relationships,
  • repositioning myself after changing careers,
  • engaging in conversations and thought leadership,
  • building a global network, and
  • serving others by sharing knowledge (my own and curated content from others).

Today I have a successful coaching practice, am a sought after panellist and the Mentoring Lead for Women in Mining South Africa and I attribute a large part of that to having consistently shown up on LinkedIn and leveraged it to position myself for my expertise.

What Will I Learn?

  • Establish your professional brand
  • Complete your profile with the customer in mind. Become a thought-leader by publishing meaningful posts.
  • Engage with insights
  • Discover and share conversation-worthy updates to create and grow relationships.
  • Build relationships
  • Strengthen your network by finding and establishing trust with decision-makers.
  • Find the right people
  • Identify better prospects in less time using efficient search and research tools.

About the instructor

Hi! I am Briony If you are anything like I was for a large part of my career, you probably have a good handle on your career... or you did until you started going through a transition.  Maybe that transition was of your own doing, maybe it was imposed on you.   One of the key lessons in my life has been that in knowing my strengths and where I need support, I have become a better version of myself. And by letting go of a lot of that ego, I have been able to move the metaphorical mountain that was standing in the way of managing my career like a business. I am certain that if you are a self-starter, ambitious, and passionate about the business of being you - the time will come when you will feel a yearning growing inside you to make the move - towards living an intentional and purposeful life and managing your career like a business. Believe me, climbing to the top of this certainty summit has not happened overnight. In fact, it took me about 18 years as an environmental and social risk consultant in the mining industry, as well as a few more years of studying, reading, and learning, to get to where I am now.
