Why is IMAGE So Important?

Young businessman portrait I’m glad you asked!  Your personal Brand and Image is important and whether you realize it or not, your peers and manager have an idea about who you are based on your past actions, reactions, attitude and your WORK!  I often wonder why some have to leave their current employer in order to get a promotion.  Don’t you find that odd too??  Your current employer may have a perception of who you are and what you can do based on your image.  So, what can you do to reinvent yourself and create a new IMAGE?

First, if you are always late, try getting to work and/or meetings on time. If you are always negative or known as a pessimist, change how you communicate and start your conversations on a positive note and try to come up with solutions and try not to just list the problems.  Also, volunteering for special projects can have multiple benefits. First, signing up for projects shows that you are a team player and secondly, you gain additional skills and experiences by volunteering that you can list on your resume.  Also, if you have a friend or close colleague at work, ask them how you are perceived, if they are a true friend, they will tell you the truth.

Just knowing that you have an image is the first step.  Then, reinventing yourself and fine tuning any rough edges will lead to a New You!  Your employer will welcome the changes.
