Is your Image important?
NO. No – because it is crucial; not just important.
What is your image? And, What is Image Management?
Simply put, it is just the perception people carry about you. It is how and what people think about you. Your image is the perception of you; a picture of you in the mind of people. People who include – friends, colleagues, partners, clients, competitors, team members, seniors, peers, subordinates, and social circle.
Maybe the reality is different from the perception in people’s mind – but – who cares! Perception is the only reality. You are not what you are but you are what people think you are. And, this image of yours is working round the clock. There is no way anyone can stop this.
However, one powerful thing which you and I can do is; take charge. You can ensure that this image works for you and not against you. Take a deep breath and see if it is working for you. Are you managing your image effectively?
Your image, the way you look, carry yourself, your poise – are all an integral part of your image. People tend to always make judgments based on our values, status, and proficiency with the image we portray.
The packaging sends out a huge message of the stuff inside. And, this to a massive extent gear up people to whether to approach you or not. It helps people decide what relations they want to have with you. The relation can be of friends, clients, employers, employee, colleagues or connections.
The way you dress, your grooming, your body language and etiquette are all elements of your image. When each of these elements is in sync, they serve to support you in the achievement of your goals.
In the business arena, managing your image leads to productivity and profitability. It helps you big time in reaching your professional and career goals. The differentiator in this world of endless sameness is the image that you project.
Your image is the validation of your label. What you influence is influenced by the image you put.
When it comes to business decisions, we take care of: time, global markets, economy, current trends and whatnot. What is equally important and highly overlooked is the image. Your image is a resource at your disposal that is unfortunately underutilized. It is not a superficial thing, it dwells deeper. It is about respecting yourself in front of people.
High time we consider image management as a skill needed for business and leadership. Your image has a direct implication on the way you would think, feel, look, act, and behave.
Image Management puts a person in a more responsible state of mind. It helps an individual be more conscious and focused. It is simply being in charge, more aware and positive about who you really are. Image management is more and much deeper than a makeover. It looks good – feel good – be a good thing.
