Be Your Best Self
& Create the Career of Your Dreams!

In today’s fast-paced world, it can feel impossible to achieve the success you desire without the perpetual feeling of stress. That doesn’t have to be the case.

When you work from your talent base, the way you were designed, your contributions are valued and you are offered more of the work you love to do. your authentic confidence grows, your profile rises, you stop caring about the opportunities that aren’t right for you and you naturally magnetize the people and opportunities that are right for you. That is the cycle of competence.

That is the Power of Brand Your Brilliance.

Hi, I’m Kimberly Gerber

Kimberly is the CEO of Excelerate, an executive strategy and communication coaching firm based in Irvine, CA. Leveraging a rich background as Marketing Director for world-class companies like Starbucks Coffee and Fleetwood Enterprises, Kimberly is an innovative and engaging communication strategist whose teaching reshapes thinking, creates opportunities and produces transformational results for her clients.

When working with Kimberly, leaders become incredible communicators who have an exceptional impact on their teams, their organizations and their own lives.

 

Here’s what I’ve observed are the common threads among truly great leaders – those people who deliver strong results and who are admired, respected and even loved by the people they impact:

Confident

Leaders who value their talents are more confident. Something magical happens when people first embrace their special blend of talents. In that moment, the fear and “wishing to be more…” that was present seconds before disappears, and what emerges is belief and relief! Belief that they can achieve exactly what it is that they want, and relief that they can do it without all of the skills and habits they know deep down inside they don’t have. When we embrace what we DO have and give it supreme value, we can’t help but be filled up with natural confidence, and that confidence acts as fuel to propel us out into the world to serve, accomplish and achieve. Confident people are magnetic and successful because they are not striving – they are moving forward with ease and purpose.

Brand

Everyone has a personal brand. Yep…that means you! Personal brands result from external perception of all of the visual, verbal, emotional and relational cues that we send people. No matter who we are – we have a personal brand. So, the important question is, “Are you aware of and are you happy with yours? Does it serve you in both strategic and fulfilling ways?” The majority of leaders aren’t clear about their brands. Even people who have worked on their image haven’t gone deep enough to ensure that their passion and their talents are consistently highlighted. If you aren’t branding what’s brilliant about you, you’re probably missing out on fulfillment, power, income and friends.

Strategy

Brilliant personal branding requires strategy. In our quick-fix culture, too many people associate personal branding with their style and their elevator pitch. Those are just two of several tactical elements that should be developed only after a clear talent-based strategy and message platform have been created and vetted by people other than you. Which points to a common personal branding mistake that leaders make – they try to create their brand in a vacuum of self-assessment. A self-assessment is not a valid assessment. How you experience yourself is quite a bit different from how others experience you.

It’s important to get your branding right. Start with talents and passion. Build around what elevates your confidence. And, engage in thoughtful and strategic ways.

When done right, Personal Branding is
THE best way to advance your career,
have a positive impact and enjoy the ride.

Leaders create a clear competitive edge when they build their personal brand strategy with the same care and effort that a company builds its product branding. As an executive or manager, you ARE the product that people trust to lead them in the right direction. They invest their time, ideas, energy and faith in your abilities, your attitude and your character. And, the more clearly they know, like and trust you, the more easy success will come to you. Done brilliantly, personal branding improves the perception, and more importantly, the quality of your results faster than any other form of personal, leadership or soft skill development.

I’m going to show you how to Brand Your Brilliance with a transformational five-part process, through which you will see, value and delight in yourself like never before!
