Seriously. Not everyone can do what you can do. Even if it comes naturally to you. And if you’ve had to work hard to gain your skills and abilities, that’s awesome, too!
Superpowers can be anything from riding a bike, to wielding the Lasso of Truth, to managing projects, to . . . you name it. And since we all can do different things well, it’s important to identify your unique combination of superpowers.
Of course, some of these will be more useful in a work environment, and some less so, but it’s great to claim all of your Superpowers so you can decide which ones to highlight in your personal brand.
Whatever your Superpowers are, own them and celebrate them.
Think about a time when you rocked a presentation/analysis/design/audit/whatever it is that you do. How did you uniquely do it? What about YOU made it special and successful?
Superpowers are things that you do best. They can be things that you’re just naturally gifted at, things that you’ve practiced forever, and/or things that you’ve learned through experience. Or all three!
For example, a lab tech’s superpower might be interpreting blood test results. That superpower comes from:
- Curiosity and love of science (natural gift)
- Performing tests accurately (practice)
- Knowing what she’s looking at (experience)
A baseball pitcher’s superpower might be throwing a curveball for a strike. That superpower comes from:
- Excellent vision (natural gift)
- Superior throwing motion (practice)
- Poise and calm during the game (experience)
In this module, we’ll look at How Superpowers Work (which skills and abilities you want to be known for and how to position them) and When Superpowers Don’t Serve You (if you hate something you’re great at, or if you take a Superpower too far).
In our Taking Action! Section, you’ll have the chance to complete worksheets that will help you hone in on your Superpowers.
Let’s get our Superpowers on![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
