All about personal brand leadership from Forbes

Have you heard of “personal brand leadership”?

A Forbes article I came across recently explains this concept beautifully.

Personal brand leadership is a style where leaders integrate their personal brand into their influence to lead others. This involves crafting an engaging “origin story” and connecting with the audience through storytelling, intertwining their brand’s narrative with the audience’s experiences for emotional bonding.

The communication is authentic and compelling, often unscripted. Personal brand leaders share stories of resilience and success, relying on past lessons to inform their present and future.

They build communities around their brand, attracting followers with motivational charisma. Followers are encouraged to self-improve, inspired by the leader’s authentic example. Personal brand leaders leverage their education and expertise to enhance visibility, credibility, and profitability for themselves, their companies, and their followers.

Personal brand leaders include well-known figures such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Richard Branson as well as influencers in various fields. These leaders create businesses and communities around their personal brand and origin story, which earns them great trust and financial success. Even if personal brand leaders aren’t CEOs, they are often the most influential person in the company.

For new entrepreneurs, especially in the online sector, personal brand leadership offers a fair chance even without a large marketing budget. Instead of direct competition, it’s about winning over your audience by sharing your experience with others. This not only attracts your ideal customers, but also repels those who aren’t a good fit for your business.
