Diplomatic Planner is Alive and Kicking!
Talyn Rahman-Figueroa, CEO of Grassroot Diplomat, celebrates the launch the much awaited “Diplomatic Planner”. Check out her musings in her latest Founder's Blog.
I can’t contain my excitement anymore. A project I’ve been working on for the last two years just got launched and I couldn’t be more proud. This isn’t just a book, guys. This is a planner I wish I had when I was launching my career in international relations.
The “Diplomatic Planner” is 12-month career development toolkit for diplomacy and international relations. It is your companion guide to crafting a brand as a Diplomat and how to steer the complex ship of bureaucracy and conflicts of interest. There are 12 themes within this planner for you to tackle, one theme per month with 1-2 practical exercises to complete per week. It’s about developing yourself around your career without compromising your ethics, values and long-term goals.
The Planner will be launched officially on 26th November 2018 but you can enjoy a 25% off pre-order discount right now by using the code: BOSSDIPLOMAT. Please support this amazing project by grabbing your copy on: http://www.grassrootdiplomat.org/diplomatic-planner.

The reason this is a big deal for me because I know something like this is needed in international relations. The Diplomatic Planner focuses around 12 themes designed to make you an outstanding diplomat in your chosen niche. These include:
SKILLS FOR A CHANGING WORLD: Understand your skills, weaknesses, and areas of further development to break into international relations
FITTING A GLOBAL PROFESSION: Understand your fit in the world by identifying long-term goals to help you balance work-home priorities
ENHANCING EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE: Familiarise yourself with the utilisation of emotional intelligence when conducting international relations
KNOW THYSELF: Cultivate a deep understanding of who you are and how to overcome the fear of failure in a competitive environment
CULTURAL HUMILITY: Develop self-awareness around societal privilege and cultural barriers, and how to adapt to mandates
MORAL GRAVITY: Preserve integrity in the face of adversity, helping you maintain control while remaining empathetic to others
PUBLIC DIPLOMAT: Apply lessons of diplomacy to everyday life to create positive interactions and act responsibly abroad
STICKY CONTACTS: Create positive engagement, online and offline, through networking, storytelling, and mutual influence that builds bonds over time
ART OF LEADERSHIP: Develop resilience when dealing with failures, conflicting personalities, time constraints and external pressures
GLOBAL GOVERNANCE: Manage bureaucracies, work around lobbyists, influence governments, and operate in regulated environments
BRANDED DIPLOMAT: Craft an authentic personal brand that aligns to your values, cause and country without being self-promotional
