I didn’t know how to express my opinion on LinkedIn.
I was scared.
- “What if I get it wrong?”
- “What if I end up with trolls?”
- “What if people don’t agree with me?“
When I found my sense of purpose ..... something surprising happened.
The more of an authentic position I took, the more my posts resonated, the more my clients and readers messaged me and …. the easier it all became.
I realised that you don’t need to be right, to be the funniest or the best to express your opinion.
But you do need to be able to articulate your position.
Not simply regurgitate the opinion of others.
- People connect with people
- People “buy” from people they like and identify with
- Your unique perspective will resonate with your tribe
One of the most powerful opportunities for busy executives is to brand themselves via LinkedIn.
To help you stand out in a crowd and to ensure you are memorable even when you are head down backside up solving complex business problems.
So embrace your inner expert and work out -
- What do you stand for?
- Why is that important?
Then let go of busy, right and perfect … and give yourself permission to have your say.
