Create and manage your own personal ”Tiger” brand.
We all have a brand. It may not be what we want it to be, but don't be naïve, you have a brand!
According to Jeff Bezos, your brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room.
What is your brand? Is it what you want it to be? If not, how can you manage it to be your desired brand.
Borrow a few ideas from the Tiger book, and other resources, to nail your personal brand and make it compelling.
Learn to be at the top of your food chain, and embrace change as you go through Survival, Adaptation and Flourishing
In this podcast we cover two sections of the Tiger book.
The first is to think about yourself as being at the top of your food chain just like a tiger is. What does it take on your part to achieve and maintain that position?
Secondly, think about the phases you go through when dealing with change in your life. How do you learn to adapt to your environment and take further advantage of it?
Hope you enjoy the podcast.
Begin to get a sense of what is your Current Condition
Take some time to learn about tools and processes to follow to get a better idea of your current condition. And remember, your current condition is where you start. You do not need to stay there nor do you need to change. It is just important to understand where you are starting.
While in this process, learn to think like an entrepreneur. That does not mean that you start your own business but rather that you are open to the possibilities that might present themselves.
And remember, change is inevitable so that no matter what you do today, several of the guiding factors may change and you must be able to take advantage of that opportunity.
So in summary: learn to meditate, take time for personal reflection, take advantage of some of the self assessment tools listed in the program, network to get more ideas, seek out informational interviews, volunteer for interesting opportunities and lastly, start a journal and document what you are discovering about yourself.
Introduction to the rationale and structure of the Tiger Model
Too many people focus on creating the perfect resume and then sending it out, hoping that it will get past the selection criteria and land them a job.
News Flash - I have said it before and there was a great article in the WSJ a few weeks back saying how that model is broken.
We are going to be exposing you to a different way of thinking and behaving so that you are in control of your career quest.
The Tiger model has 9 separate sections and in reality, they all tend to operate simultaneously. We cover them sequentially because there is a model and structure, but we acknowledge that life is much more complex and the model is very fluid.
Anyway, tune in to get an intro to the model and then we will be covering the 9 separate elements in the upcoming podcasts.
Think Like a Tiger - Become more empowered in your career and personal life.
"Many men go fishing all their lives without realizing that it is not fish that they are after." (Henry David Thoreau)
Take a minute to think about what you truly want out of your career, and your life, and then examine the strategy you are following to make it a reality.
Here is a hint: It is not about sending your resume out to hundreds of job posting and hope that someone gives you a job.
Instead, borrow a page from nature i.e. Think like a Tiger and embrace a mindset that will empower you to be more successful and truly fulfilled in your career pursuits.
We are going to be running a series of podcasts building on the idea of helping you learn to Think Like a Tiger in order that your career quest is more successful.
Also, if you are interested in learning more about the idea, my book "Tiger in the Office" is available on Amazon in Kindle, Audio, Hard Cover and Paperback formats.
Stay tuned. My plan is to publish one podcast each week for the next 10 weeks in order to cover the content in the book and to give you a framework to be more empowered in your career, and life, pursuits.
