Persistent networking online and off. Good tips for interim executives http://ow.ly/1AeCy .

I like how this article in Washington Post encourages one to have a specific networking plan and goals that involve in-person networking and social media. Good advice for interims looking for their next gig, or for folks looking for a full-time job.

Takes a Strong Leader to Leave a Void

Posted on April 19, 2010. Filed under: interim management, Leadership | Tags: , |

Good leadership is leaving “white space” for your team. http://ow.ly/1Adlh . I like the graphic design metaphor used in the article.

In other words, be strong enough to leave room for team members to grow and step into challenges. Good leadership is not about you filling the gaps and sucking all the oxygen out of the room.  Being an “action manager” often means sitting back and inviting others to make things happen.

Personal Brand for Interim Executives

Posted on April 9, 2010. Filed under: interim executive, Leadership On Demand, Resources on interim management | Tags: , , |

I know many of my readers are interim managers or folks considering interim as the next career move. Therefore I’m bringing to your attention a webinar on April 13 sponsored by the Interim Association.

How to Market Yourself as an Interim Executive

  • The concept and role of personal branding
  • How to develop your own personal brand
  • The role of social media in the management of personal brands
  • Marketing tools to distinguish a Brand Called You

You can get info on the webinar and the association at www.interimassociation.org

I can’t attest to the quality of the program or the value of the Interim Association. I can tell you they put a drive for membership ahead of common sense.  Case in point:  I offered to them the rights to resell (and make money on) my book, “Leadership On Demand: How Smart CEO’s Tap Interim Management to Drive Revenue” . They wouldn’t consider carrying the book unless I joined the association.

I’m surprised the  association directors aren’t choosing to provide the best resources to their members and seek to generate revenue from as many sources as possible.

  • About this Blog

    This blog is devoted to the topic of interim management for marketing functions within large and small corporations. Interim management as a staffing concept is well-understood and widely utilized in Europe. However, here in the colonies we are just beginning to open our eyes to the business benefits of being flexible and nimble when it comes to staffing senior-level marketers.
