Does my image work FOR me ? ....

You must have heard this one - It takes a few seconds for a person to form an opinion about you. 

Well, good news ! its true  - You could be at a social gathering or  a representative of your company at a business meeting  and those impressions you create while interacting with people will determine your success now and in the future.

How does that happen so quickly ?

It all starts with YOU. How do you see yourself - Confident? Shy ? Capable ? Assertive, Funny ? Happy ?  Reserved ? Nervous ? Serious ?

All this is reflected in the way you look, act and behave. Through your appearance, behaviour and communication - this determines how the world reacts to you. And this cycle goes on creating impressions, perceptions, image.

Now the better news  - Yes, you can change that impression if the first impression wasn't the greatest in the world.

Ask yourself - does my image work FOR me ?

Image Management - Huh ? ...What's that ?

The perception that people have of you, the impression that you make on them when you meet or interact with them – that is the IMAGE you project or the image you have created. This impression starts with YOU... from your perception of yourself. Image management is using certain tools to ensure that this perception, impression is a positive one to encourage people to interact with you further in the future.
