Part III — Accelerating Your Career: Your Community, Your Impact, Your Brand
Giving of yourself and helping others is a major key to elevating your personal brand, accelerating your career, and of course, making a positive impact on your community. Generosity with your skills and time will catapult your success. Why?
- Leadership – true leaders are willing to teach, help others advance, showcase their skills, and learn from others
- Network – helping others activates your network and leads to opportunities. You send a message about what it means to be connected to you, and your network is more likely to reciprocate
- Growth – all your interactions have the potential to deliver personal and professional growth. Giving back proves you are a team player and believe in and are passionate about making a difference beyond yourself
