Speak, Stand and Style
Image Coaching with Kerry makes my interactions with the C-Suite more confident and successful. Now, I never waste my time in the closet or wonder about my presentation. I know absolutely that I’m polished in appearance and my self presentation is bold and genuine. It makes my relationships better and that’s where my passion is when I’m at work, with people.” – Wendy Branch
Your personal appearance and your professional presence are key to the way you connect with others. That means, when you network, lead a group, meet with colleagues, partners, clients, new friends and potential dates and even in chance encounters, the way you look is vital. In one second, other people decide whether or not to believe, trust or align themselves with you and those decisions are made based on your appearance, your body language, your spoken word and your visual cues. You also experience the Halo Effect. This is when others assign other positive traits to you that aren’t related at all to the interaction.
And not only is it important to inform others of your goals and values, it’s vital to inform yourself. Amy Cuddy in her Ted Talk, Your Body May Shape Who You Are expresses the importance of using external clues, such as clothing, to help you “nudge the body to shape the mind.” How you clothe yourself, how you sit and stand and move makes you feel and believe that you are at ease and bold and gives you the confidence to be present and authentic.
Image Coaching is about your appearance and your presence in the context of a specific situation in your life or career. It helps you by making sure that all your visual details, mannerism and your language support your goal or your desired outcome. As an Image Coach, not only do I advise you on how to create a polished and stylish appearance, I ask questions about you and what you want, help you use powerful and resonant language, stand and move with confidence and guide you in consistently expressing your values and talents in a way that moves you toward whatever it is you want. These sessions are focused around a specific event, can be part of a visit to your office or meeting place and are designed to help you succeed at a specific goal by helping you manage the way you speak, stand and style your look.
