Take your teams from intimidated, overwhelmed and frustrated to educated, excited and empowered.
First impressions are made in less than a tenth of second and what people wear is a critical component contributing to first impressions. At work – in person or virtual, it’s not just individual first impressions that are made, it’s your organization’s first impression as well.
People can be taught how to style themselves, they can learn the basics of flattering style, and feel empowered instead of intimidated when it comes to what they’re wearing.
Styling is a subtle yet powerful advantage that people can use immediately.
In my style workshops, I educate empower and excite people around their professional style. I demystify styling and teach my signature styling process so everyone can create their personal style– regardless of age, gender and style preferences.
Why do this? Your people will show up for the day ready to get to work, they’ll uphold your organizational reputation, and they feel immediately more confident about themselves.
When you invest in your people you signal that they’re valuable to you and your organization which in turn creates loyalty and will help you retain and attract top talent.
Your people are your greatest asset – how are you investing in them?
Welcome to The Strategy of Style
Strategy of Style workshops provide people the tools to style themselves and can improve their lives dramatically. Attendees will learn the five step process to create a work appropriate personal style so they can wear, with confidence, more of what they own and build a wardrobe that authentically represents them. They will have practical tools, guidance, and tips to use every day when getting dressed.
Because there is an immediate benefit people experience when they know how to style themselves, their performance improves, they are more focused, attentive, creative, and more - all because they embody and become what they’re dressed to do.
Expect attendees to leave educated and excited to style themselves to the fullest expression of your organization’s brand, their role, and for the individual wearing the garments.
This is an eye-opening workshop as I’m integrating sustainability and style. Attendees will make the connection between sustainability and style, be empowered on how to make better choices for their style and the planet, walk away knowing how to get started crafting their signature style, and get the most from their existing clothes.
