Your career is your business, and you are its CEO. – Andy Grove
We have all heard the cliché: don’t judge a book by its cover, but the harsh reality is that people often do judge a book, a leader or an organization based on outward appearances. This isn’t about looking like a runway model; it’s about how you present yourself, your team and your organization in the most professional way to make a good impression.
Some of the points we cover in today’s conversation include:
- Do you present yourself as professional and collected or frantic and messy?
- What does your office space say about your organization?
- What does your online and digital presence say about your team?
- And more!
As a leader, maintaining a professional appearance is in YOUR best interest. Maintaining this level of discipline and putting your best foot forward will give you, your team and your organization the best ability to compete.
Question: In what areas could you step up your “outward appearances” to improve the perception others have of you and your organization?
