Follow for updates on what The LinkedIn Rockstar Team at Integrated Alliances is creating.
As an executive, you are successful and you know how to network. But do you know how to network online, appropriately translating manners you instinctively employ in person?
“The 5-Minute Drill” was developed through the collaboration of two successful thought leaders, both having consulted with and crafted profiles for hundreds of executives since the early days of LinkedIn. The book was awarded the prestigious DAN POYNTER's global e-book GOLD MEDAL in Career Development and SILVER MEDAL in Business.
Independently, they developed recommendations for representing oneself online as well as advice on how to navigate a fast, efficient daily "5-Minute Drill" to keep you "in sight" and "top of mind" of people looking for someone just like you. Whether representing your company or yourself, the image you convey does matter.
Author Joe Frankie III is a West Point graduate who, in addition to advising military veterans, claims over 40 years of developing and leading multifunctional global teams in engineering, logistics, life sciences, technology, aviation and environmental services as well as coaching those military officers into the C-Suites of startups to Fortune 100 companies in both private and public sectors.
As a senior leader, Joe sources and recruits CEOs, Presidents, CFOs and numerous senior executives to help his clients build world-class management teams. He also has been the President of selection boards for SVPs and VPs and a board member selecting military field-grade officers for Lt Col commands across the global.
Lori Ruff, known by fans worldwide as "The LinkedIn Diva" is a special kind of executive – a world-class brand advisor who has helped hundreds of "Battling Bette" and "Jolting Joe" executives map their real-life journies onto the virtual networking landscape, where authenticity is easy to claim yet difficult to convey.
Lori and Joe first were drawn to each other because of their sincere interest in helping distinguished professionals cross the chasm between "real life networking" where one shakes hands and converses real-time to "networking with real people" offering virtual handshakes, hellos, and employing asynchronous conversations using the tools of the Internet. This application of networking skills is not taught in business school!
Lori and Joe expertly articulate the power of expanding your efforts exponentially online. Yet the foundation of their instruction remains squarely on LinkedIn because of the ability for every professional, whether aspiring or accomplished, to craft a compelling, future-driven interview without ever having to leave their office.
The book is packed with short stories, no-nonsense lists and resources, and an easy-to-find quick reference page conveniently located at the back. You can't argue with that!
