CAREER THOUGHT LEADERS (CTL)
NEWS & EVENTS

Join Us in Remembering Pat Schuler

Pat Schuler was a sales and business coach whose wisdom, "Kick Butt" approach, and support transformed the businesses of many career practitioners. Pat passed away unexpectedly last week. As members of the Career Thought Leaders Board and those who knew Pat well reflect on her impact, common themes include the self-confidence and empowerment she encouraged from each individual she coached. She was vibrant proof of the power of great coaching.

Career Thought Leaders would like to honor Pat by supporting more career professionals who seek to embrace their own power. In the next few months, we'll be formalizing a scholarship to provide funds for a new business owner in the careers industry to have the transformational experience of working with a business coach. Watch for more details in early 2018. If you'd like to support the scholarship, you can purchase the session Pat offered for CTL this past June as all proceeds will be used as seed funding for the scholarship. If you want to participate in the effort or contribute, contact Marie for more information.

We are also asking for your assistance in continuing Pat's legacy by collecting stories from those who worked with her. If you have a story you'd like to share, please email it to marie@careerthoughtleaders.com or call the CTL toll-free number and we'll record and transcribe it for you.

To all our colleagues who knew Pat well and to her partner Brian, our thoughts are with you.

Sincerely,
Marie Zimenoff

OCT 23 |Social Branding Analyst Certification: Registration Closes October 20

LinkedIn has become the most important personal branding tool for career-minded professionals (and companies), yet the majority of people don't know how to use it to their benefit.

You can change that for your clients!

This innovative certification gives you everything you need to help your clients to build stellar branded LinkedIn profiles and use LinkedIn to expand their thought-leadership, grow and nurture their network, and do their job better.

Imagine how you and your clients will stand out with a truly branded profile! Imagine how eager clients will be to engage with you–a trusted expert certified in 3D branding LinkedIn profiles that dig deep enough to truly engage a reader and create a connection.

Unlike most LinkedIn training, our program is built on a platform of personal branding.

It provides context, real-world strategies, and new tools so coaches and writers can help their clients craft an efficient, integrated social media strategy built around the differentiation, power, and value of their personal brand.

We integrate secrets and tips for maximizing LinkedIn, sharing advice you won't find elsewhere. And we update the program annually to reflect the ever-changing LinkedIn landscape.

The result?

Your clients gain competitive advantage and increase their influence and confidence. They expand their brand community. They increase their performance and reach their goals. And so do you!
