Know Yourself, Grow Your Career
Are you ready to create a self-guided vision for your career? Would you like help doing that?
Do you want to discover your own personal value proposition (PVP) equation and how it can help give you clarity and increase your professional worth?
WHAT IS A PVP EQUATION?
A personal value proposition equation takes into account your interests, values, preferences (collectively priorities), skills and talents (collectively strengths) and combines them with existing or potential roles that benefit from what you offer (market needs).
Here’s the equation:
Your Priorities + Your Strengths +
Market Needs =
Your Personal Value Proposition
Often we are hyper-focused on one set of factors, based on our current situations and outlook for our careers, such as:
- our strengths (actual or perceived),
- our own needs and priorities, or
- what we expect (without outside verification) is needed by employers or clients,
without truly understanding any of these in depth or considering how they work together. Know Yourself, Grow Your Career helps you analyze and synthesize each part of the equation, so you can bring your highest personal value to the marketplace. As a bonus, Units 9 and 10 of the book show you how to take your personal value proposition and turn it into an authentic and compelling brand and elevator pitches.
