Why Image Consulting

What are First Impressions?

We are Visual Creatures, and we all make these instant judgements when we meet others, whether we are conscious of them or not.

First impressions are impressions that strangers form of you in their mind within the first 3 to 5 seconds of meeting you based on the Image projected by You. It is like judging the book by its cover.

Clothing, Grooming, Body language including etiquette and Vocal communication are the four elements that can help create positive first impressions. When used judiciously, they help you project the right image and thereby create powerful first impressions.

 

What is Image?

Image is “YOU” in the eyes and minds of others. Image is another word for Appearance.

Image is all that an individual project consciously or unconsciously—the way you look, care for, and carry yourself, your personal style, poise, and presence. It’s part of who you are.

 

What is Image management?

Image Management is the art and science of consistently projecting an appropriate and powerful image.

Image management is all about developing your Inner strengths (Soft Skills) and at the same time reflecting them on the outside through your appearance (Image management).

Image Management is the combined expertise in the individual elements of Image- Clothing, Grooming, Fashion, Soft skills, Etiquette, Body language and Vocal Communication.

 

What are Soft skills?

Soft skills are a person’s Emotional Quotient (EQ). Comprising communication skills, self-management skills, leadership and interpersonal skills, they also include personal habits, friendliness, optimism and other similar traits. If we use a broad and relevant definition, they include the way you present yourself, your vocal and verbal communication skills, body language, etiquette, your emotional intelligence and empathy, stress and time management. They also include effective team management and leadership skills, your ability to negotiate well and your coaching skills too. In the end, soft skills are the behavioural tendencies that have a great bearing on how well people get along with others, convince teams of their viewpoint, and conduct successful negotiations and lead teams and organizations effectively. They are the Emotional Quotient that enables a person to form relationships with others and manage their business, personal and social lives successfully and meet their goals. Success is 15% Hard Skills and 85% Soft skills. Soft skills give you that winning edge to move ahead in Personal, Professional and Social lives.

 

What Image management does?

Image Management teaches us to optimally use Clothing, Grooming, Etiquette, Body Language, Verbal & Vocal Communication skills to maximize our impact on others. So that long after a personal, professional or social meeting is over, we are still remembered and recalled with admiration and purpose.

Each person is unique. Image Management takes a person’s personal style, enhances strengths, downplays weaknesses and makes optimum use of resources.

Image management combines all aspects of the person – inner self, characteristics, goals, outer environment, differing roles and occasions when working towards achieving the appropriate image.
