Up to 26% of how we present ourselves influences our chances of what it takes to get promoted. A recent study by the Centre for Talent Innovation says that being perceived as leadership material is essential to being promoted into leadership roles.
Over 60% of those questioned felt that the main attributes required were communication skills including speaking confidently, assertiveness and the ability to read an audience or situation, confidence, poise under pressure, decisiveness and appearance.
How you dress, your body language, your non-verbal communication all contribute to your personal brand or your professional presence. Up to 75% of those surveyed said that unkempt dress detracts from both men and women’s executive presence. Amongst women specifically, 73% said too-tight or provocative clothing undercuts executive presence.
For many business people, the daily challenge of dressing for success or ensuring and you are doing justice to your job, your business, or enhancing your career opportunities can prove demanding. Image matters and image sells. Its all about perception. Dress the part, look the part, be the part.
