Hi, I'm AJ Sarcione

My career began in PR, building the reputations of brands, externally. Now I support companies, teams and leaders in building better reputations by activating their brands from the inside. CEOs, heads of HR, internal communicators and individual leaders have engaged me to support them in transformations of their cultures, workplaces, teams and often within themselves. 

 

If you’re interested in learning more, I’m always open for a quick chat to see what spark we can create.

Anyone who has undergone significant transformations understands the critical role of reputation. Drawing from my own experiences through several major changes, I've discovered the transformative power of activating our internal brand.

During my time as a communications executive at Yahoo, we faced a multi-billion dollar transition, leading to Yahoo’s acquisition. I observed the dimming smiles of employees whose spirits were once vibrant. This observation marked a turning point.

I found an opportunity.

 

I established a global internal marketing organization from scratch. Our efforts supported our CEO in inspiring employees during the transition to Verizon and the subsequent integration with AOL, our longtime competitor. The success of this initiative led to the creation of a new role for me: 'Head of MOJO and Employee Experience.' I spent the following year traveling globally, energizing our workforce with our new CEO's vision.

In both roles, we designed programs and tools that empowered our employees to shine. I witnessed firsthand how those who envisioned potential were happier and adapted more readily.

Motivated by these insights, I founded 'Get Your Shine' to ignite organizations’ positive curiosity. We assist companies, teams, and leaders in activating authentic internal brands, which in turn cultivates superior reputations.
