Is a formal educational job safe

You can learn to be confident

“I don't want to have to pretend just because my boss didn't like my outfit and my opinion in the last meeting!” Many believe that in every situation - whether professional or private - only one “appearance” is possible. Anything else would mean denying yourself.

Imagine going for a walk with your dog in the forest in the morning, meeting a neighbor there, stopping and chatting. A few hours later you are sitting in a meeting with a customer and discussing the latest ideas for a product presentation. In the evening you go to the opera with your partner and meet your boss over champagne during the break.

Three different situations, three different ways of dressing and communicating. Hand on heart: Are you really wearing the same thing in all three situations in your mind's eye, are you using the same language and are you acting in the same way? I think you will say: of course not! There are three situations in which there are three different ways of expressing yourself in a variety of ways.

The stylish appearance

The human being is multifaceted in his expressive possibilities. Language and clothing are only two of the possibilities, although we have been heavily influenced by them for centuries. Because it was not so long ago that our social status was expressed through clothing. Guilds wore their own uniform, rural regions expressed their affiliation through certain colors and fabric patterns. So it's no wonder that clothing and etiquette are important in the corporate environment. They are a powerful signal to make known the professional role and belonging to a hierarchical level. With this background knowledge, it is very easy to understand that tank tops / spaghetti tank tops, shorts and flip flops are a perfect outfit at home or on vacation at the beach, but have no place in the office. The professional role needs a more formal, more official, more serious expression: trousers / plain colored jeans, shirts / blouses, closed shoes / pumps - more or less, depending on the function and hierarchy. In our coach pool we have a “styling coach” who can advise you comprehensively on questions about a stylish appearance.

But clothing is only a signal that we send out. Language, tonality and non-verbal body signals are a broad spectrum with which we announce who we are or who we want to be: shy, arrogant, self-portrayal, factual, self-centered or shy - these characteristics condense and become our overall appearance. Our communication coach can give you a very individual and personal self-image and image of others and - tailored to your needs - guide and anchor the personal adjustments.

More self-confidence: show your attitude!

Our attitude has the highest degree of effectiveness on other people. There you can see what we generally think of the world, our fellow human beings and our boss, our customers and colleagues. It can be read directly from our facial expressions, gestures and posture. Helpful and hindering beliefs, biases, fears and beliefs cause us to make contradicting statements, both verbally and non-verbally. If we are not authentic, other people will perceive this and will not buy our products, will not follow our visions and will not be convinced by us. Our personality coach has very effective methods to influence non-conducive beliefs and attitudes and to change them sustainably in your favor.

Charisma works

Because we only have a lasting, absorbing effect on others if we are really authentic. When we say what we mean and underline this through our appearance, posture, behavior and clothing.
Is it difficult to take all of this into account? Of course not - we are very diverse in our personality and have a lot of potential. It would not do us justice if we allow ourselves just one form of expression. What is in us and in what diverse and very special ways we can express ourselves personally must be reflected and also practiced. In our very personal small group seminar "Self Presentation" we give you a quick insight and overview of posture and behavior models and their effect when you appear. You will get to know alternative means of expression at all levels and can use them in a very personal way for your desired appearance. You have to bring fun, curiosity and openness - reflections and discussions are inevitable in small groups with only four participants. The personal desired appearance is practiced and tested and is available for numerous future encounters.
