This past weekend I spent about 6 hours at a career workshop. With a couple of friends. I picked up a couple of new things from the workshop. The first is that I need to come up with a better. “Elevator Speech” Here is what I have come up with:
I am a business consultant with over 15 years of successful leadership experience. I am successful because I can fix problems and motivate employees. With my skills I have been able to raise profits and increase employee productivity. I am passionate about learning something new everyday. Because of this I have been able to identify and adopt emerging technologies. This has help me to better manage risk and design innovative solutions to problems
We also learned about power statements. I need to work on more. I am creating a google document with more of the power statements. But here is one for an example.
I can work hard and smart. for example I was given the responsibility of turning an office around that was missing deadlines. I worked 12 hour days to design and implement a system that paid people more to produce more. Within two months were were beating our deadlines by two hours. and the average production for each employee had doubled.
I will continue to work on more of these statements.
