Are you regularly communicating what makes you different from the next person in your industry? Because if you want people to understand and value all that you bring to the table, you've got to let go of the generalizations and start talking specifics.
Generalizations don't explain the specific niche you occupy.
Generalizations don't tell me how I can pay you to help me.
Generalizations don't help me see how you're the best fit for a senior role at my company - the job you'd be perfect for, but aren't aware of.
Generalizations don't make your value clear to people who haven't worked directly with you and aren't familiar with your work. And when they aren't clear about what you do, they're less likely to recommend or refer you to others.
So, how are you currently talking about your role, position and value?
Is your description one generalization after another? Or is it specific, magnetic and captivating?
Are you highlighting the most compelling aspect of your background? Or are you burying the lede?
