Bobby Bakshi will guide you through the 10 steps to creating a thriving culture regardless of the size of your company. Remember, as Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos) says: "Your Culture is Your Brand."

|Section 1: The 101% Brand INTRODUCTION|
Listen to Bobby Bakshi, Founder and Chief Inspiration Officer of Resonant Insights LLC, briefly describe why this course is important for everyone from solo-entrepreneurs to leaders and team members at large corporations. The building blocks of a great brand are all about clarity of purpose, one employee at a time. What are your personal values? How do you personally relate with the vision and mission of your company? What stories of passionate connection do you share with friends and family about your company and why you are excited to be working there? These are just some of the areas Bobby will uncover and tactically guide you through in this course.
NOTE: This course teaches employees how to construct their personal brand and then concludes with how to relate themselves to the brand they represent (company or product offering). This course is based on Bobby Bakshi's book "The 101% You: Seven Steps to Creating the Life of Your Choice." You can purchase the book here.
In this lecture you will learn the definition of 101% and why it's important. In today's world of scarcity, it is critical to believe that abundance is possible for us all. Creativity and innovation are after all about abundance. Learn how you can apply this principle in your day-to-day work.

|Section 2: VALUES|
Learn how the foundation of every company starts with the values of every indivual, from the founders down to new hires. In this lecture you receive step-by-step guidance on how to uncover and live your true values, beyond simple words. Remember, everyone interprets a word differently. Get clear about how you, your team and your company define these words. Make them your own.
|Like it or not, adhere to them or not--we all have ingrained values in us. We know when we resonate with certain values and not with others without even thinking about it. Here are some basic questions to assist in bringing your values to surface. Make sure to jot these down in your journal for t…|
|Section 3: Creating a VISION and MISSION|
A vision is always ahead of its time and feel impossible to accomplish at the time. From a "man on the moon" to a "PC on every desk" it took a visionary to believe and then create the offerings that make the vision a reality. A vision is typically ahead of its time and it takes a visionary to push against the norm and current state of things. Learn how to create a vision. If you already have one, learn how to use it to propel you forward to creating the success you choose to have.
|Now let's dream BIG, I mean bigger than BHAG (Big High Audacious Goal). It's time to create your lofty vision statement. There are many ways to come to this. We invite you to keep it simple. 1. Find a quiet place where you won't be distracted. 2. Close your eyes and take 3 slow and deep breaths f…|
Mission is the "how" you deliver on your company's vision (the "why"). Learn why it's important to have one and to live it beyond a tag-line. Each and every employee must be clear about the company's mission and know 101% how they connect with that mission, personally. What's each person's part in accomplishing and delivering on that mission statement?
|Now it's time to break down that life vision into the HOW you'll get there. This is the work of a mission statement. This statement must be SMART, for you to have a deep emotional connection with it: Specific Measureable Actionable Resonates with you Targeted The general construct of a mission sta…|
|Section 4: The 7 Steps to The 101% Brand|
This is the first step of 7 from Bobby Bakshi's book "The 101% You: Seven Steps to Creating the Life of Your Choice." These steps can be applied in any area of life. This course is designed to apply it toward business and entrepreneurship.
Step 1 is about having a clear intention.
|Our definition of INTENTION is... Your Desire + Your Belief = Your Results Everything begins with desire, consciously or not. Look around the space you are in right now. An idea as simple as a glass desk took someone's desire to make it happen. Nothing begins without intention, and intention begi…|
The next step in the 7 Steps is Your Choice. Make sure you are signing-up for something with a clear intention and choice. No one can MAKE you do anything, at least in the free world. Yes many times we are not keen to do something but make sure to recognize that only you OWN the choice to say yes or no. Do not be a victim (or a child) about it and accept something you are not willing to be accountable for.
|We are ALWAYS at choice about what state of being we will live from. How are you showing up, regardless of what is going on around you? The best thing about choice is that it can be simple. Our cumulative choices affect our view of our own selves. Are you aware of the choices you are making, cho…|
In this 3rd of 7 steps you will learn about how to make your intentions a reality, by committing the specifics of what, how and when you will do what you say you'll do to someone you trust. Be it a manager, a friend or business partner--this step is critical to your success and must be followed methodically. Do not take it for granted. It's simple but not easy to do.
|Commitment starts with accountability. Effective commitment setting is a binary decision. You are either 100% IN or 100% OUT. Anything in-between is simply a way to deny, suppress or hide your true desire. Be clear what you are commiting to and what the expectations are, first to you and then to…|
In Step 4 of the 7 steps you'll learn to now get into the details of your efforts. Most businesses and people do not allow enough time up front to do the steps you've done already: Values, Vision, Mission, Step 1: Your Intention, Step 2: Your Choice, and Step 3. Your Commitment. It's only with that foundation that Step 4: Your Work means anything and sets you and your people up for success- collaboratively.
|We all know of the concept of being aware of what is Important vs. Not Important (on one axis) and Urgent and Not Urgent (on the other axis). Let's now go beyond that fundamental truth (to work on the Important and Not Urgent--as that's where break-through and innovation occurs). Let's also go bey…|
This is a critical component to creating the outcome you desire--your power. This word is greatly abused in modern society and seen mostly as a negative. Learn the positive aspects of power and how we can use it to our advantage toward something greater than ourselves, toward a greater good.
|Do you have the courage to be all of who you are meant to be? Power has a bad wrap AND it's fundamental to who we are as bodies of energy. Remember we are always at choice: Courageous Complacent Start something Procrastinate Trust Mistrust Love Fear At Resonant Insights we believe when you Know you…|
By now you've made it through setting a solid foundation and 5 of the 7 steps. This is the step when you can start to see the end and yet you are not quite there. Make sure to not loose focus at this point. Also look around and notice who's along on the ride with you. Check-in with them and see how they are doing. If you've all followed the steps, by Step 6 integration is a given rather than a surprise. You worked hard to get here.
|By now in this short but likely intense course you have the building blocks that lead to owning your 101% true self. We define integration as that point in our life when we embrace all our parts--great, good, bad and ugly. Everything begins with awareness--be it for you as an individual or for a c…|
This is the last step in the process to creating a 101% Brand for yourself and your company. Make sure to take this step, Your Gift, just as seriously (as you have fun) as the other steps in this process. We live in a culture that moves on quickly to the next thing. Instead, imagine if we all took time to celebrate our small and big wins in ways that are unique. Leverage these moments as anchors to remember what you created so the next time you feel something is impossible you get started any way.
|"Life is a gift. If you do not value your gift, nobody else will." Do you take the time to celebrate both your small and big wins? At Resonant Insights we believe it's critical to celebrate the small wins. Those incremental steps on the path to your bigger mission and vision are what get you ther…|

|Now that you've done YOUR PERSONAL work, it's time to meet with the people you work with and assimilate these lessons into your organization. This PDF will guide you through the basics of having a conversation about VALUES, VISION and MISSION. Please recognize that "organization" can be a solo-entrepreneur with partners in her network that make it possible to be successful--all the way to multi-national enterprises. If you are in the later, do these exercises for your immediate area of influence and adjust as needed (for instance--skip Vision as you are unlikely to have much direct control over it). When all else fails and you need support--contact Bobby Bakshi at firstname.lastname@example.org.|
