If you do more than one thing, then you ARE more than one thing. Instead of being either an expert or a generalist, or saying you “wear a lot of hats,” learn to articulate and communicate your unique value at the intersection of your work identities. This is called your hybrid professional identity, and it’s your competitive advantage in the workforce.
Key Learning Objectives:
- The difference between hybrid professionals, experts, and generalists
- Why hybrid professionals are critical to the workforce and what to consider when meeting/hiring/managing them
- Tools for how to explore the intersections of your professional identities
- Tips for how to rethink a better title for yourself that conveys your unique value
