  5 Ways To Create A Spring Spark In Your Business
by Valerie Sokolosky - Apr, 2015
I love the descriptive words for spring! Refresh. Renew. Re-energize. Recently our team was talking about how ready we are to tell Old Man Winter to take a hike. And ask Spring Sunshine to show herself soon. I echoed their sentiment that when spring comes, most of us are more than ready to re-energize and do something exciting, something new. Let’s look at 5 things you can do to create a spring spark into your busin...
 
  Executive Presence Includes Being in Control
by Valerie Sokolosky - Apr, 2015
Here’s interesting information to consider on those days when you feel like you haven’t been as productive as you had hoped. Taken from Mark Batterson’s book, Draw the Circle. “It may feel like you are sitting still right now, but you are not. You are on a planet that is rotating on its axis at 1,000 miles per hour. Like clockwork, it makes one full revolution every twenty-four hours. And if that isn’t amazing enough, pl...
 
  Give Your Professional Presence Some Spring!
by Valerie Sokolosky - Apr, 2015
Are you ready to put up the winter coat and bring out your spring clothing? Sometimes the cloudy, cold, and even snowy days make us long for Spring. As you get ready for the new season, keep in mind the trends for Spring/Summer 2015 and how you can incorporate them to keep your brand presence fresh. You’ll find that many of the designers’ top picks can be worn at the office. Who says a professional can’t be on trend? 1. Bl...
 
  How To Exude Your Professional Presence While Networking
by Valerie Sokolosky - Apr, 2015
Last month was a flurry of events and conferences where I found myself in the midst of people I had never met. What fun to stand back and observe first hand some people who exuded executive presence from the minute they entered the room. What a dilemma to watch others struggle throughout the evening, glancing at their watch as if it was going to ring when their time was up and they could leave. Showing up with executive p...
 
  11 Ways to Master Your Professional Presence
by Valerie Sokolosky - Apr, 2015
Who has a presence you admire? What words would you use to describe that person? Is it how they communicate, how they give engaging presentations, or how they hold meaningful conversations? They may bring a spark the moment they enter the room. They may have a profound self-awareness, naturally knowing how to take control in most situations, being rarely intimidated. Typically they are well dressed and groomed, exhibiting a pr...
 
  5 Quick Quips for an Impactful Professional Presence
by Valerie Sokolosky - Mar, 2015
Here are quick quips (try and say THAT five times in a row) that I share during each Professional Presence program. They resonate as simple, short messages that are memorable and impactful. 1 – When in doubt – don’t. There are times when you can’t pick up my books or anyone else’s to get a specific answer. At those times, just stop and consider – “if I’m doubting whether to say something or not…maybe it’s best not to!”...
 
  Three Simple Ways to Show Gratitude
by Valerie Sokolosky - Feb, 2015
Bill (name is changed) held his semi-annual leadership conference last month, hosting the event for several hundred people in his division. I watched him show his gratitude in several ways. At dinner he gave an eloquent toast recognizing his team for their hard work. He mentioned being grateful to lead the team and be a part of an organization that believes growth of people is reflected in growth of the business. He talked wit...
 
  Are You Committed To Your Personal Brand?
by Valerie Sokolosky - Nov, 2014
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” ~Kenneth Blanchard If you had breakfast this morning, the chicken participated but the pig was committed! Here’s a client’s example of commitment to demonstrating and using his personal brand. I recently worked w...
 
  Can You Strengthen Your Team by Leading Through Vulnerability?
by Valerie Sokolosky - Oct, 2014
Vulnerability is synonymous with weakness, helplessness, and being defenseless—things that you, as a leader, do not want to be known for. Vulnerability, which is getting a lot of buzz around leadership qualities and traits discussions, is also synonymous with openness and exposure, which aren’t necessarily negative when it comes to leading a team. In a recent article in INC. magazine, the author mentions what researcher Br...
 
  How Does Networking Fit Into Your Brand Strategy?
by Valerie Sokolosky - Sep, 2014
In a recent blog post, I mentioned how a positive second impression develops a lasting business relationship. When you’re networking, your brand is “on stage.” You’re making connections, focusing on your presence, and collecting business cards. You’re doing great! Now be sure you have a strategy to keep it going. Once you’ve made sure to “Do it Right”— from your appearance, to your behaviors and business etiquette—how will...
