She believed she could so she did (Ali Brown)
I’m really scared, and also a bit sad, but OH SO EXCITED!
What would you do if you were not afraid?…
You know what the number 1 fear is? … public speaking! People are more afraid of public speaking than death. Death is only number 4. So it’s better to be in the casket at a funeral than being the one giving the goodbye speech? Really? Luckily I’m not that afraid of public speaking. On the contrary. Still feel anxiety before a large audience, but it does not scare the living hell out of me.

IN MY JOB WITH HR BUILDERS I CONNECT HR INTERIM MANAGERS TO CHALLENGING HR ASSIGNMENTS.
A couple of weeks ago I sent 3 interim managers to a client of mine to have an interview regarding an interesting assignment. Even though one of the ‘candidates’ had the best CV, she was not the one who got the job. When I asked for some feedback, the clients said the interim manager was not able to tell a compelling story about herself and her career, let alone what she could do for the company. He expected somebody able to present herself in 1 to 2 minutes in a strong and confident way. It is clear, my interim manager did not get her Elevator Pitch right.

What are the pitfalls? What are do’s and dont’s? How do I make a decent living? How do I make sure I get that next assignment? etc.
Now, here is the good news, I see it as my goal to help those (soon to be) interim managers when they have questions, doubts… And let’s start with your brand.

“I’d always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed.
I never suspected that I would have to learn how to live – that there were specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world I had to master before I could awaken to a simple, happy, uncomplicated life.” – Dan Millman
