How often have you heard the phrase, “She’s definitely presidential.” Or “He’s brilliant, but not very presidential.”?
What Kind of First Impression do you make?
These comments are not confined to political commentaries. In fact, “appearing presidential” applies to leadership expectation in all walks of life . . . most frequently in corporate circles.
Are you giving a speech? Applying for a job or for funding for your business?
“You’ll never get a second chance to make a good first impression!” You’ve no doubt heard this expression, too, right? Yes, it’s a well-worn cliché, but it’s also true. Unfortunately, all TOO true.
How many people are ignored, underrated or outright dismissed because they don’t make a good first impression?
Has this ever happened to you?
You have a great idea or something important to contribute but you’re shunted aside or overlooked entirely because you don’t meet someone’s expectations?
So, what do you have to do in the days and weeks ahead that are important to you, your career or your business?
Are you prepared to make a great First Impression?
You can be the best prepared, most knowledgeable speaker at the table . . . but if you don’t look the part or speak with authority, you’re toast.
This isn’t rocket science.
But it’s truly amazing how many otherwise very competent, really smart people fail to focus on their image.
They know better. YOU know better!
But are you really giving your image – that all-important first impression – a high enough priority?
And even if you are, how about the people who work for and with you? Are they putting their best foot forward and representing your interests in the best possible way?
