    Melpomene (Tragedy) by Edward Simmons.

    “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” ― Abraham Lincoln

    Standing pat on existing competencies is a recipe for disaster; for job you have today is not the one you’ll have tomorrow. This book helps you discover what competencies to build now and in the future.


    Step 1: Visualize Current and Future Roles

    "The door of opportunity frequently opens for those best prepared to walk through it." — Murray Johannsen


    Roles aren't just played in Hollywood and Bollywood. On the stage of work, you can be a bit player or a star. Imagine your future roles a future you define — not your boss, not your parents, not your university — you.

    Now you will be looking at three roles, your current one, the next one and your aspirational role. After all, if you don't have a destination on the journey of life, you are forever lost. 

    Step 2: Continuously Scan the Environment



    Sure, you can surround yourself with a zone of complacency and now understand what's going on. But the world is stronger than your security blanket. You might as well know as to be ignorant.    

    Step 3: Decide on Your Threats and Opportunities

    "Luck is what you call it when preparation meets opportunity." — Gen. David Petraeous, Frequent Saying, Washington Post, June 23, 2010


    You’ll be in the career slow lane if you can’t sense opportunity. Worse, you can lose what you have if you don’t deal with primary threats. Be a strategist — of your own career. 

    Globalization is not all peace, love and happiness. The evolving global economic structure has created a number of real threats and possible threats that will have to be dealt with and planned for. This section will look at existing threats and highly probable ones impacting global business.

    It was once said that opportunity is often masked as an insurmountable problem. Since there are no lack of problems in the world, we all must be surrounded by opportunity.

    Unfortunately, very few people know what opportunity is let alone sense it. To paraphrase a Winston Churchill hill saying, "The average man trips over opportunity, but quickly stands up and keeps going."

    Step 4:  Assess Your Core 5 Competencies

    “You get hired because of your strengths, fired because your weaknesses.” — Murray Johannsen

    You can't easily change your traits, but you can build your skills. Some skills are always in demand and always pay well. Paradoxically, these are often skills not taught in the universities.  

    In the Core Five model, every role has a unique set of five competencies. They are:

    • Technical. 

    • Leadership. 

    • Management. 

    • Strategy and Tactics, and 

    • Self-Mastery. 

    Be smart — build what the universities don't teach you but corporations want — and what your desired roles require  

    Step 5:  Determine Your Own Strengths and Weaknesses

    “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” — Sun Tzu, The Art of War

    As Legacees founder likes to say, “Your strengths get you hired, your weaknesses get you fired." There’s nothing worse than being blind-sided; you can’t fix what you don’t know was broken. 

    And remember, no great dream is every achieved with the strengths you now have. Iif you see yourself as an unfinished work, as someone who doesn’t want the same job for 30 years, as a person who wants to move up the ladder of success, you better work on those weaknesses.

    Step 7: Take Action

    Mapping. On the journey of life, you better have a map or you will always be lost. That's the purpose for the first six steps. 

    Once map has given you the layout and your destination, but one must choose from among different paths to get there. For example, skills needed must be built and ignorance diminished.   

    This is the Routing. Choosing the best path is not so easy when you have lots of alternatives to sort through.

    One has to figure out how this has to be done. Understand that there are others who can do your job and machines might as well so forever build skills. Don't stop  

    This is where assessments, a mentor, or a coach comes in handy — it’s vital to get feedback from an expert. They can provide specific details only someone who really mastered a skill is capable of knowing.

    And to make the course more enjoyable, there are:

    Memorable Quotes. Lots of them from the famous and the wise.

    Beautiful Images. Numerous paintings from the old masters. After all, eyes were not made to see in black and white.

    • Six-Week Full Class On-Line With Instructor

    "When managers and other responsible persons in business organizations are asked how much of the work day is spent in communicating, the replies range from 85 to 99 percent." -- Harold Zelko and Frank Dance (1965)


    This course focuses on six essential leadership communication skills—the kind of skills that lead to increased levels of responsibility and increased pay. After all, one cannot be effect as a leader if one doesn't posses stellar communication skills. And one never gets too good at the art of communication.

    Most people have many contacts in their network, but few know how to leverage these contacts. There is a similar phenomenon in chemistry, where there exists both potential energy and kinetic energy. Potential forever remains a possibility. Kinetic energy makes things happen. And so it is with your Linkedin network, you must convert potential energy (contacts) into the kinetic kind (referral sources, appointments and interviews.)

    Class Modules


    This online class is about developing contacts and taking actions that covert work leads to prospects to work. You will learn how to:

       • Develop both personal positioning
       • Put together your branding strategy
       • Develop more high quality leads
       • Take more effective conversion actions


    1. Building a Strong Foundation: The Essentials of Branding, Positioning and Differentiation

    You have the option of presenting ourself in many different ways. Whether one wants to do so depends on the nature of the product or service. Sometimes people want to hire the expert. Sometimes, they want to hire the business. Sometimes they want to hire an expert who has a business. This section looks at the corporate entity and how it might be used on this medium.

    3. Enhancing Your Personal Brand: Developing a Top-Drawer Profile

    "A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five." — Groucho Marx

    Getting found by the prospects such as head hunters involves the smart use of your profile. The issue is two-fold, first, being discovered during a search and second, once they are on the profile getting and keeping them interested.

    4. How to Properly Leverage Group Membership 

    Image by: Lumaxart
    There are thousands of groups you join. Some groups you join because of a common interest, (i.e. technology) or (much more likely), it's where the clients or recruiters hangs out. Once you join a group you can: share your knowledge to help others, post a news article, start a discussion, answer a question, or post a job lead.

    5. Growing Your Network: Utilizing, Influencing and Boosting Social Capital



    It's long been known that in professional circles the quality of the network is very important. In the old days, one used a rolodex and a phone. Today your options are more numerous and more complex. Linkedin presents one way to leverage a network, but it is not the only way. The way Linkedin manages the network is through "degrees of separation." This model has strengths, but it also has major weaknesses. For example, to assume all individuals you know are equally important, and is willing to help you out is not a valid assumption.

    6. Advanced Methods of Projecting Your Expertise

    "If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail." — Unknown Source

    Linkedin has both basic functions which one must master and the advanced options which you can choose to use. ANSWERS as the name implies is a service defined to get answers to your questions. Its value lies asking good questions and answering the same. How do you jazz up a profile? You can add applications. While it is not necessary, potentially one can create another channel to impress. Some may want to host an event. Events offer a valuable way of getting to people together either locally or on the web. For example, you could host a local group or might want to offer a webinar of some type.

    7. Managing Your Reputation
    Before one starts to develop a personal brand, its wise to take a look at what is already being said out there since most individuals will not only check your profile, they will also do a quick check on Google. And of course, you want to keep some information out of the public domain to discourage identity theft.
