Scott Goodson wrote a great article at Harvard Business Review entitled “What is Your Brand Against.” Great question, since that also helps you to clarify your values and priorities. Here is what my brand is against:

1. Conformity and “fitting in”

2. Trading your soul for “secure job” (it’s a false trade these days, anyway)

3. Letting your email inbox dictate your work for the day

4. Low standards and dreaming small

5. Banning emotions, values, humor and spirituality from the workplace

6. Keeping your head down” and hoping the company will take care of you (it won’t)

7. The dull and predictable

What is your brand against? In a related, but separate question, what is your brand for?
