Stock Symbol YOU?

Posted: January 3, 2011 in Performance, Personal Accountability

It’s a new year,  your organization has become a stock market and everyone now has their own ticker symbol.  Each person also has $10,000 to invest in others, but not themselves.

Who would invest in YOU and why?  Who would you invest in and why?

The concept of “Brand You” is not new, but now the focus is on performance and adding value.

What is your product or service, how much will you charge for it, and who will pay you for it?

Will your revenue exceed your costs?  Are you a “profit center” or a “cost center?”

What measures will you report to your shareholders in your quarterly reports?   What will your EPS (Effort Per Share) look like?

What will the business analysts ask you? What will they write about you?  What will their stock recommendation be?

Incite: There are many questions posed here using the stock symbol as a metaphor. Few if any people will actually try to answer these questions.  Hopefully, they will at least stimulate your thinking about who you are, what you do, and how you show up.
