Hello👋! I understand how challenging it is to put yourself out there, stand out in your niche, or stay atop your game in a competitive job market, and business environment. You're not alone. Even the most seasoned professionals struggle to find effective ways to demonstrate their value and make an impact. ➡️ WHAT I DO: I help C-suite leaders, mid-level mangers and entry-level executives “OWN THEIR VALUE” by defining their personal brand - who they are and the unique value they bring to the table - so that they can stand out as trusted experts and leaders in their industry. ➡️ WHY: Organizations need employees with strong identities who can help them achieve their mission. Thus they need people-focused leaders who can deliver.💯 ➡️ LEADERSHIP TRAINING: Through my signature workshops, 'The Currency of YOU', 'Leading with Your Personal Brand' and Communicating Your Value', leaders learn to leverage their personal brand to be effective leaders, build strong teams, solve problems and make an impact. ➡️ WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING: 📍“Dr. Hume Johnson is one of the best facilitators on leadership development there is. She is such a natural to get you to dig deeper. I've learned so much about who I am as a person, as a leader and how others see me. I recommend her to anyone going through their leadership journey”- Weayonnoh - Nelson-Davis, Executive Director, Economic Progress Institute, Rhode Island 📍“Dr. Hume Johnson's pedagogy is phenomenal. She specializes in getting people to understand their value, connect that value to business imperatives and prepares you to effectively communicate that value. Her methodology equips you with systematic and repeatable techniques, most of which I have incorporated into my day-to-day activities. - Shawn Daniel, Senior Manager, IT, Exelon Corporation, Chicago. 📍''The experience of working with Dr. Johnson was more than I expected. I received expert facilitation in discovering my voice in my industry and guidance for my communication strategy. Thanks to Dr. Johnson, I know just what to say and how to say it. Work is flying at me now. I highly recommend you work with this amazing communications professional'' - Janelle Benjamin, CEO, All Things Equitable, Canada.
