In his Harvard Business Review article the founder of Network Capital, Utkarsh Amitabh talks about building your ‘Category of One’. The general thesis behind this is that in the 21st century will be sprinkled with multiple disruptions in work and life. Reinventing ourselves will be the most valuable skill, but reinvention doesn’t necessarily mean recreation. Those who chase every hot new trend and compete for every outcome will be exhausted. Those who build a category of one and adapt will make a tangible impact and have fun doing so.
One part of creating your 'category of one’ is to follow your curiosity (instead of passion) and train yourself to learn across disciplines. The other and the more complex part is to communicate this effectively.
To help Network Capital subscribers navigate this, we have designed the Personal Branding Fellowship to help you -
Identify your 'category of one’.
Understand formats of personal communication and identify what resonates with you.
Communicate your interests and work in an effective format to expand your luck-surface area.
