Does it really matter what you wear to work? Shouldn’t your success of your career be about your work and not about what you look like?
In this video, I am going to explore whether creating a professional image is important for your career.
For some, clothing choices seem frivolous and unimportant. What is interesting is that psychological studies prove that not only does your look impact on how people perceive and treat you, but more importantly, it has an impact on your own mood and level of confidence.
1. Lets look at how your look impacts how people perceive you. If I was presenting a professional image workshop at your company and I arrived looking overly casual for the occasion, would you be likely to trust what I say? And if I arrived looking all turned out would this give you greater confidence in my ability?
Obviously in my field, how I dress has direct impact on how people perceive my abilities, but is it that different for other industries? If you are going to a job interview, do you dress your best? I’m sure you do. Why? Because you want to make a good impression. In this situation, you understand that the way you dress either says to interviewer, I am confident and I know what I’m doing OR it says I don’t take my work that seriously. Whether we like it or not, people do make assumptions about us, based on how we are dressed.
2. Now lets consider how your clothing choices impact on you. Think of a time when you felt most powerful...what were you wearing? Now think of a time when you felt really down in the dumps… what were you wearing? If you are still not convinced that clothing affects your mood, the next time you are feeling blue put on your favourite outfit, a little makeup and style your hair and see how that makes you feel.
