Personal Styling education is an impactful form of professional development as long as you don’t believe this myth…
As a leader, you may embrace a casual style, but how it’s interpreted by your people may not align with how your organization wishes to be perceived.
Your approach to address this may be to refer to an outdated dress code or tell people to dress for their day, and hope for the best.
And that is not necessarily what’s best for your business.
But the reason you haven’t done anything impactful to change the situation is you believe this myth – personal style can’t be taught.
Style can absolutely be taught, but not the way you think.
It’s not a list of what to wear, what stores to shop at, the latest trends and this year’s colors.
It’s not having a personal shopper bring in a rack of clothes, a litany of brands to shop for, or selecting suits from a catalog.
Your teams can learn how to develop a work appropriate personal style that reflects individuality AND that doesn’t involve a formulaic approach to force them into the confines of specific dress codes.
Developing personal style is a process that starts with the individual so that they are an active participant in writing their own style story so that at the end of the journey, what they come up with actually sticks.
They will embrace the style and wear the things because they co-created their style instead of someone telling them what to do, what to wear, what not to do.
And that’s the key, in my style workshops, I’m teaching my signature process so attendees leave with the knowledge, tools and foundational style education to create their own personal style.
When your teams have the skills to style themselves well, they will show up confidently instead of hiding because they are self-conscious about what they’re wearing.
They’ll confidently step forward and show up – literally and metaphorically.
When they show up dressed for work, they will actually be in a mindset to work. Be more creative, be more focused, be more productive – all because of what they’re wearing. And let’s not forget, they’ll be happier because they know they look good, and they will feel good about themselves.
Don’t succumb to the myth that style can’t be taught. You’re holding your people back.
