Good manners include how we look and how we carry
ourselves. We have between 60 and 120 seconds to
make a first impression. An appropriate
appearance demonstrates respect for yourself and
others.

Society has established rules regarding
appropriate attire and proper presentation for
various situations. Failure to heed these
guidelines is an etiquette gaffe. Socially
inappropriate attire may cause people to feel
uneasy.

55 of impression is based on looks
  • Before you speak a word, your clothes have
    already spoken volumes.
  • You want clothes that communicate, I belong,
    I am professional, I have judgment and taste.
  • Decide what your professional image is going
    to be and stick to it.

Appearance Counts It Pays To Pay Attention
Packaging does make a difference-would you buy a
product with a torn or dirty wrapper? Being
well-groomed is more important than being well
dressed in the business world. In fact, a
well-groomed appearance can make up for an error
in judgment in what you are wearing.

Appearance Counts It Pays To Pay Attention
The effect of an elegant, perfectly fitted outfit
can be completely negated by poor
grooming. People assume that the quality of your
work isnt any better than the quality of your
appearance.

Appearance Counts It Pays To Pay Attention
The person who is registering the fact that your
fingernails are dirty or chipped probably isnt
even listening to what you are saying. Conforming
to professional appearance standards is
essential.

If clothing or mannerisms are outlandish, it
will affect your professional life. Always ask
yourself What Message Does Your Appearance
Send? 55 of the impression you make is based on
visuals, which include Body Language, Grooming,
and Clothing.

Body language is how you carry yourself. Does
your demeanor really make a difference? Always
think Does my body communicate the message I
want it to convey?
