Does your LinkedIn profile sound like you? Or does it sound like what you or someone else thinks you should sound like as a lawyer? I’ve helped hundreds of lawyers with their LinkedIn profiles and Liz Ryan’s article Seven Things Your LinkedIn Profile Says About You is spot on. Read her advice and then look at your profile with fresh eyes. What does your LinkedIn profile say about you?
I love helping attorneys find their voice and be more of their compelling, multi-dimensional, unique self (yes, you, Mr./Ms. Commercial Litigation Partner, are unique). This often involves looking at an attorney’s perspectives and/or any limiting beliefs about how a LinkedIn profile should be written and about its purpose. It also frequently stretches people’s comfort zone a bit.
Headlines don’t have to be Titles. Titles don’t have to be just Titles. Summaries can be in the first person. Work you really enjoy doing can be highlighted. We can share your story. And if you don’t know your story, we can discover it and then share it.
By the way, for lawyers at medium and large firms revamping your LinkedIn profile often means the wonderful opportunity to rewrite the stiff, formal, cliché filled language that you or someone cut and paste from the attorney bio section of the firm website!
