Is Donald Trump's surge in the polls related to his recent comments about Mexican immigrants?
Donald Trump has built his personal brand on being provocative and attracting scorn. Recent events tell us he plans to run his Presidential campaign the same way.

One of the best ways to demonstrate your thought-leadership, express your point of view and bolster your personal brand - the LinkedIn blogging platform.
LinkedIn has made long form publishing available to all members. It's a significant step in transforming the profile from an online resume into a comprehensive personal branding platform.

Does your digital first impression match the real YOU? http://360rea.ch/1EUQxeu
First impressions last. It’s more than a saying; recent studies in neurobiology have proven it. But in the Information Age, first impressions are more likely to be delivered on computer screens via the results of a Google or LinkedIn search. Here's how to master the digital first impression.

Ora asks an important question. What do you think about these assessments? Ora Shtull 
 
Love your take on multi-rater assessments, Ora. Like you I use 360 Reach, and I also like StrenghtsFinder. I find these often reinforce each other. Beyond formal assessments, however, I've found there is often a wealth of insight that clients can gain from uncovering their career/brand story.
