Second Draft +



You are now fortified with information from your consult. You have answers to your questions. You have a developing sense of your client's work, contributions, vision, trajectory. Time to edit with heart!


Take your time to edit the back pages as needed (still noting any questions and following up with your client). And, you also now may begin the process of lifting up and out the key pieces of information that are expressive of your client's gifts and genius. This is the final piece that get's finalized as it is born out of the detailed work of the back pages.


Executive Summary (Top Page)


Left Bar


The Feng Shui Resume template's left bar includes: 1) contact information, 2) outline of key skills, scope of practice, etc., 3) three "impacts". Selecting the header and sub-sections for the left bar is critical for shaping the story for the reader. There is no set rule for this. Key is to shape what best represents your client's gift, genius, and contributions. Below are several examples with a description for what led to this particular expression for the left bar.



Nutritionist:


Heather's left bar features three distinct skill areas that she developed over the years, including:


1) Nutrition Counseling

2) Lifestyle Coaching

3) Family Support


We did not include "impact" as her value expression is in the scope and depth of her experience and skills.







CEO:


Mary's left bar features two distinct skill areas plus impacts:

1) Executive Skills

2) Growth & Strategy

3) Select Achievements (Impacts)


Notice also how the achievements/impacts have been divided into sub-categories:

1) Service Launch

2) Merger & Acquisition

3) Market Expansion


Note: "Career Summary" in the right side was customized to "Executive Role Summary, Healthcare" in order to help provide shape to Mary's exceptional career..



Public Health Director:


Tamar's left bar is designed to highlight her passion for servant leadership combined with her professional and technical skills.


1) Leadership in Action

2) Specializations

3) Leadership Impact


Notice also how "Career Summary" was customized to "Public Health Functional Summary". Rather than reflect role progression. We chose to highlight her functional breadth across public health.




Pharmacist (Sample):


This sample resume features the template's design with a single category, "Management" or could be "Leadership", plus three sub-categories that add further depth to the master category:


1) Pharmacy

2) Business

3) Employee Employment


Notice also how "Functional Summary" to the right reflects breadth of experience, rather than role progression. This is most expressive of the story within.




Subtitle


There are three different styles for the titling in the header of the resume. They are:

  1. Multiple Advanced Degrees: Name with degrees listed vertically (optional title below)

  2. Single Advanced Degree: Name with degree (optional title below)

  3. No Advanced Degree: Name with title below


Summary Paragraph


The summary paragraph at the top is the final piece of editing / story telling. This is the only section that is written in the first person.


The general format for this paragraph follows the outline below (color coded for training):


ORANGE: Start with the "I Am" statement that shares who/what the client is in terms of role, time and focus.


PURPLE: Weave in a middle sentence/section that reveals the "how" or approach.


GREY: End with a final section/sentence that shares the "why" or goal/mission.
