“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.” – Henry Ford
College students were my audience at a recent talk on Executive Presence and Personal Branding. Ms. Alda Lou Cabrera, a college professor at the University of Perpetual Help System Dalta, was impacted by my talk at the PCCI Christmas Party. She wanted me to present a similar topic to her students.
On January 23, 2019, I was the resource speaker for the College of Arts and Sciences’s Symposium on Personality Development. The students were celebrating college week which had different fun activities including the search for Mr. and Ms. CAS 2019.
The topics I covered were:
Understanding Professional Image
How to Look Credible and Likeable
Business Etiquette and Protocol
Body Language and Non-verbal Communication
These would help motivate the students to up their game as they seek employment. They also need to boost their confidence and create a professional image. Because they have no work experience to boot, these students need to “look” the part.
Did you know that Executive Presence is the missing links in job applications? It is important to develop this trait even before graduating from college. An applicant who exudes Executive Presence finds success in the quest for employment.
Executive Presence is an all-encompassing quality of a leader whose character, competencies, and professional image project authority, credibility, and integrity. It is an external manifestation of an internal transformation.
Your personal brand reflects you and your values. The brand shows your credibility, reliability, and level of professionalism.
We create an impression based on physical appearance. It is the first thing people see. Choosing the proper outfit commands a positive response to the brand. So, a basic knowledge of the body shape and what style would enhance your best features is helpful.
But non-verbal communication plays a vital role as well in creating a lasting first impression. Body language, behavior, and personal appearance add value to professional image.
