Maximum Impact Program Our role as Image Consultants is becoming more important in South Africa as companies are starting to understand the importance of projecting a successful image in order to gain respect and acceptance in the market, and sustain a credible brand. The result of a successful projection will always be positive as the effect impacts all areas of the business and clients are satisfied both personally and financially. As the 'suit culture' has changed over the last decade, men are in need of distinct guidelines as to their appropriate dress code. As more women enter the corporate world and are finding it important to be groomed in a way that would be beneficial to the advancement of their careers, and that will give them the confidence to deal with the challenges presented to them in highly competitive and pressured environments, they too are using their Personal Images as a useful tool. Evaluation As Executive Image Consultants we explore different topics in a way that will ensure that our clients have all the necessary information to adapt the personal image of their staff to the company image and brand. Our evaluation is essential in ensuring a balanced and accurate depiction of the needs of a company. Our strategy includes the development of each individual staff member's image and personal style. These findings are then adapted to the resulting brand analysis and the implementation of dress code policies. Prescribed Image Once the evaluation period is complete it is essential to merge the results along with the specific needs of our clients. In doing so management will gain understanding of the Prescribed Image that will be essential to the enhancement of the company image. It is essential to develop a program that not only addresses the specific dress code, but also encompasses the enforcing thereof. This program must promote a positive attitude that will be gained through a better understanding of corporate image. Each staff member must be part of the company's brand projection. Team Building Our combination of Image related topics along with our team building program, ensure that the delegates leave more positive and motivated resulting in long term benefits to the company. Image Related Training Topics included in our Corporate Image Program:
The first impression that we give when we enter a room is in the basic form of what we wear. We need to realise that the way we dress and the colours we wear are our initial form of communication and it is of utmost importance that we make good use of our wardrobe and make up colours, as well as specific lengths and proportions of clothing, in creating a good and memorable first impression. How you present yourself to others will create a first impression that is either successful or damaging and we need to be aware of the impact that our appearance has on others. In order to be successful we need to apply basic principles to utilize our best qualities in a way that will enhance the natural beauty of each one of us. This becomes easier when we start to look at our appearance more scientifically and more objectively and learn techniques that, when applied, will make it easier for us to look our best at all times. Image Workshops for Small Groups and Companies Image Workshops are the ideal way for you to learn the benefits of understanding your colour harmony, style and figure analysis, and we have devised a course for small groups which allows for personalised attention so that you will be confident enough to apply the results of your analysis. Conferences In addition to our Image workshops we are also able to put packages together that are ideal for interactive seminars and conferences. We create special corporate identity and branding packages and our corporate conference presentations are designed to meet the needs of women and men in a corporate environment. The main focus and objectives of the conference packages is to create an informal, fun learning environment in which to present the benefits of dressing for impact. Team Dynamics Knowing who we are is the most important link to understanding the way we think and act. We build all of our packages on the basis that in all situations and required outcomes, you require a good understanding of self and others. In reassessing human behaviour, we encourage stronger interpersonal relationships with long-term benefits in mind. All projects are reliant on the success of the team and it is therefore crucial that the team understands their strengths and weaknesses when looking at their individual personality styles. The aligning of personal goals with the goals of the company goes a long way in providing the necessary motivation for individuals and teams to successfully complete their tasks. The awareness created in teams leads them to interact with less conflict and stress and a greater appreciation of each other’s unique strengths. Developing successful teams through our interactive team building workshops, will promote a more creative team with the added benefit of enhanced communication skills. The changes that are inevitable can only but result in success and growth. View our training outlines and our workshop schedule for more 1st Solutions training interventions.
