Here is today’s rundown for the podcast:

First up, we revisit last week’s weekly video blog on an early trend in healthcare that I believe has real merit for personal career brand management and to help in finding your next better job.   That tool has been around for a while but many candidates avoid it like the plague - video - specifically a video resume or professional overview.

Next, we will focus on the common phrase “Bigger is Not Better.”  As the transformation of healthcare continues apace with changes that will alter our current business model, some health systems are eying mergers, apparently believing that bigger is better.  Bigger is just bigger and less nimble.

Job Interviews are probably the most important aspect of the employment process and yet this is where many candidates struggle. 

Today on SelfPerspective we are going to talk about how to integrate your life’s stories into your answers to questions from prospective employers.

If you want to improve your interview performance, this is a must listen-to podcast.  John Self is a masterful story teller and understands how to use stories to fashion a compelling message in a job interview.

To be successful in today’s business climate, you not only have to perform, to execute your business strategy and exceed your performance objectives, you must also have well-honed career management skills, including a deep understanding of personal branding, which is to say that you may, or may not,  be a CEO of a business but everyone is the CEO of their own companies, their skills, their record of accomplishment and their reputation. 

If you are not familiar with this concept, it is time to stop, take a breath and become proficient, or you may find yourself prematurely on the sideline, unable to find a new position and wondering what you will do next in your career.  

It is a concept author and consultant Tom Peters first wrote about in Fast Company magazine in August of 1997. In the 21 years since the article first appeared, it is has become more relevant.
