Hello, I'm Lonny Gulden, the Twin Cities LinkedIn Guru. I work with consultants, the self-employed and businesses on the use of LinkedIn for lead generation, increasing corporate visibility, social selling and revenue generation. In addition, I conduct weekly workshops for job seekers on using LinkedIn to accelerate their job searches through dynamic profiles, personal branding and effective messaging. Finally, I teach recruiters and talent acquisition specialists on the effective use of LinkedIn for hiring.
I place a great deal of emphasis on StrengthsFinder 2.0 which shows me to have the following Top 5 themes; Communication, Adaptability, Woo, Maximizer & Strategic. Let me explain.
- Communication: This strength is indicative of good presenters and public speakers. I enjoy
speaking in front of groups evangelizing new technologies or training LinkedIn users.
- Adaptability: I live in the moment. I embrace change and provide stability to the organization
when chaos ensues.
- WOO (Winning Others Over): I'm an extreme extrovert who loves meeting new people. I am
always networking to build relationships and expand my sphere of influence.
- Maximizer: I enjoy working with smart people and taking organizations from good to great.
- Strategic: Given any scenario I recognize issues and patterns. I am intuitive and quickly
evaluate multiple courses of action to identify the most beneficial.
