Controversial Communication: Incite a Riot or Facilitate Debate?

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Publisher Nance Rosen’s weekly Syndicated Column on PersonalBrandingBlog.com: Controversial Communication: Incite a Riot or Facilitate Debate?

How dangerous is it to let your personal brand engage in controversy, and with a point of view that may not be the most popular? You may not have a choice as your clients have increasing access to you – and as people look to you for thought leadership on global events.

How can you interact on topics without alienating people with opposing points of view? Demonstrate the depth of emotional intelligence and maturity that thought leaders bring to controversy. Ignore personal attacks and don’t make them. President Obama is a perfect example of what to do when you are the target of venom.  As we witnessed in real time Congressman Joe Wilson slide down the slippery slope of incivility with his outburst, “you lie,” the President didn’t react.

YouThinkInc Versus GroupThinkInc

Publisher Nance Rosen’s weekly Syndicated Column on PersonalBrandingBlog.com: YouThinkInc Versus GroupThinkInc

What quality of life or value dominates you? What is the foundation from which it grows? What other values must you wrap around yourself, in order to put you in the minds and hearts of people who matter to you and your career?

For me, the blessing is I’m very lucky to have been born after Guttenberg made the press (not Police Academy 3), Vint Cerf invented the Internet (not Horton Hears a Who), and Steve Jobs (as opposed to Steve Just Thinks) put it all first on our desks and now in our palms.

The curse is I can’t watch the news on television because it’s not news by the time I see it. If I’m not growing I feel like I’m dying. That’s why being a lifelong learner isn’t something that’s nice for me, it’s essential – like air, water and food.

Write Your Will and Start Your Life.

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

My Tuesday Syndicated Column on PersonalBrandingBlog.com.  Write Your Will and Start Your Life.

Great athletes start with the finish line in mind. Lance Armstrong doesn’t hop on his bike and wonder where he’ll end up. Michael Phelps doesn’t jump in the pool and paddle around. Why would you take to the open road of your career or business without a destination in mind and expect to wind up in the ideal place?

Clearly, this is a time for you to have a clear outcome in mind for yourself, your career or business. Part of your brand is who you are, but a more present part of it is: who you are becoming?
