How do you feel about having to make an impression on someone? For some it’s a daunting task. For others it’s a chance to make connections, do a little business, find friends or even a mate.
Are you good at it? Do you think you have room for improvement? According to a recent study on Facebook profile photos, people who include social cues in their profile photos are perceived to be more socially attractive. A social cue might be you playing catch with your kids, holding a drink and smiling, playing the guitar or any information that shows who you are and what you’re about.
That may not be such a surprise but the real catch to creating a good impression on Facebook is to make sure others are saying good things about you, especially near your profile photo. The study concluded that other people’s opinions matter more than the information you portray about yourself.Properly maintaing your Facebook page could probably take up a lot of your time. But what about your real life impression? Do you have a good handle on how to create and keep up your real-time profile? One of the services a life coach can provide is image consultation. This type of session isn’t just about how you dress, although that is considered, but the focus is much broader than the makeover shows that are now a staple of any “self-respecting” reality programming.
When you’re looking to upgrade your reputation, your mannerisms, speech patterns, and social cues are assessed. We coach you in the areas you need to strengthen. We also train you in important behavioral skills such as persuasion, how to exude confidence, and to develop deep rapport building tools.
Not only is an image coaching session a great way to increase your ability to compete for a job, it’s a fun way to learn about yourself, and it makes a great gift too!
