Workshop Details

Your Behaviour, Your Brand: Stepping out of your comfort zone to elevate reputation

Our reputation is an ever changing, subjective element that depends largely on who is perceiving us. Our ability to control our reputation is only one side of the coin – what other people think of us is on the other side. Different people will form varying opinions of our actions and words, based upon what is important to them. This workshop will give you a head start in figuring out what other people hold as important, so you can use this to your advantage when building your reputation. You will deepen self-awareness of your own behavioural preferences and begin to consider how these might be perceived by others. This workshop suits those who are ready to be challenged to think differently about their actions and will provide practical strategies for building a solid reputation with diverse types of people.
