“To be outstanding you need to stand out”
– William Arruda
Do you sometimes feel that your appearance is not in tune with your personality? Do you often stand in front of your closet not knowing what to wear? Do you have difficulties wearing colors or combining them? Have you ever felt out of control or anxious in a high-pressured situation, such as job interviews, a difficult conversation, a public speech or any situation where you are exposed to other people´s judgements?
You are not alone!
Your personal image is how you are perceived by those who meet you. People judge each other all the time based on appearance and behaviour because we evaluate our environment based on what we see and hear. We avoid situations and people that seem threatening and we are drawn towards situations and people that appear welcoming.
So, while we cannot control what people think we can control how we think about ourselves and how we want to be perceived, especially at high stake situation like a job interview, a sales pitch, a first meeting or presentation.
The way you dress and interact with others sends out signals that shape the perceptions of others about your personality and competencies. So, knowing how to reflect your strengths and core values is crucial for leaving a positive and lasting first impression, weather on the job, in a meeting or in a social setting.
Using a holistic approach, our aim is to empower you and make you stand out from the crowd with flair and confidence. We will help you to embrace your uniqueness and your core values in order to be fully connected to yourself. This powerful state will make you stand tall and make a strong impact by the way you look, talk and behave.
We believe that any personal change comes with self-awareness and therefore all our services start with a personal assessment where we will determine what it is that drives your goals and needs. We then will work towards your final objectives to define your personal image and branding.
- Appearance – everything we see from the outside; your clothes, your shoes, your accessories, your haircut, your makeup, your grooming but also your posture, your smile and the way you carry yourself. You will learn what styles, cuts, prints, fabrics, textures and colours can do for you to enhance your personality and your physical appearance which will shape your self- and personal image and increase your confidence.
- Your communication style – how you express yourself verbally and nonverbally to project your personal image. We will work on your body language, posture, tone of voice and how to establish and keep a conversation flow. You will learn how to be active and receptive when connecting, interacting and engaging with others while presenting yourself with ease, calm and confidence. This will then show in your facial expressions, your posture, your hand gestures, your vocal cues and your walking style.
This personal image enhancement is for anyone ready to take control of his personal or professional life, who wants to stand out for the right reasons and feel empowered and confident at any setting.
