Personal identity and personal branding for Project Managers

When a project goes well, are you remembered as the project manager that made it happen? Does each success move you forward in your career?

or are you remembered for being the project manager to bring in if there is a problem on a complex project?

or maybe, you are remembered for the last project that you delivered which was a disaster and all the good work that you have done in the past seems to have disappeared.

The reality about identity and personal branding

Whether we like it or not people have an opinion about us. Some of the thoughts are along the lines of...

  • What are they famous for
  • I would /would not hire them because....
  • Their project management style is....
  • People like them / don't like them because....
  • They have worked with **** before

Are the ways people talk about you in line with the way you see yourself?
Why do you think people employ you?
Do people like to work with you?

There are a number of factors that affect your identity as a project manager, such as

  • professional values and beliefs
  • likeability
  • authenticity
  • credibility 
  • confidence
  • humility

If you understand your strengths and weaknesses you can picture your identity and go on to understand how authentic others perceptions of you are.
