Ask yourself are you projecting the right executive image, what message are you subconsciously communicating? Is your voice, body language, dress and appearance congruent and appropriate for your role and your level within the organisation. If any of these areas are not working for you then you could be seriously damaging your career prospects.
People’s perceptions are based predominately on what they see. When you walk into a room or meet someone for the first time you have a very small window of time to make the correct first impression. Your voice, body language, dress and appearance all create a first impression and contribute towards your overall ‘Executive Image and Impact’.
A one to one Executive Image and Impact Consultation is an investment in yourself and your future and will give you the knowledge, tools and techniques to express yourself visually, verbally and non verbally. Whilst the world of business still has many rules and conventions there is still plenty of room for individualism and an overt expression of your personality. You are a marketable product and during this consultation I will show you how to project and create the correct executive image and impact.
Self Confidence the key to Executive Image and Impact
To develop your Executive Image and Impact you need to be comfortable with who you are and what you are. It makes it much easier for people to be comfortable in your presence if you are relaxed and self confident. It is easy to see when someone is uncomfortable and lacks self confidence, you sense it, you hear it and most of all you see it. In their posture, body language and of course their dress and appearance.
