Being a Great Team Leader Doesn’t Make You Unique

Dear Coach Don, I have read and heard a lot on your site about the importance of not focusing on job boards and of having a story. What does this really mean in terms of finding my next job?

This question was put to ExecuNet’s Coach Don by Master Class Host Tony Vlahos in Ask Coach Don Your Job Search Questions, a session of ExecuNet Master Class in which Tony peppered Coach Don with questions from members. Coach Don fielded all questions with his usual wealth of job search knowledge and provided answers that are the result of years of working with senior-level executives. In this excerpt from the master class, Don shares his thoughts on the job seeker understanding his/her own unique value – something that most members he works with have a much harder time with than they realize.
