3 Myths about Image:

 

1: IMAGE DOESN'T MATTER

Your image is not everything, just what everyone notices first! The importance of image is widely accepted globally, although it manifests itself differently in different societies. In this day and age, self-image is increasingly quoted as an important part of self-fulfillment.  

 

2: IT'S VIP TERRITORY

Don't be misled: we all size people up, this is just human behavior at work. People are affected by our image whether they realize it or not. Regardless of age and profession, you need to look current and polished at all times, and communicate properly, both verbally and non-verbally. If you want to look, feel, think and act your best, you will benefit from working with a professional image consultant.

You need the objectivity to recognize issues and the determination to address them. When postponing change, you need to understand and accept the potentially significant costs associated with the status quo.
