What is Image Management

What is Image Management

  • Image Management is the ongoing, pro-active process of evaluating and controlling the impact of your appearance on you, on others, and the achievement of your goals.
  • Image Management is creating an authentic, appropriate, attractive, and affordable personal and/or professional Image which increases your confidence, credibility, capability, and productivity while contributing to continuing success.
  • Image Management is all about respect—respect for self and respect for others, respect for occasions, roles, and goals. It is smart to practice Image Management daily—in the home, school, community, and in the workplace.
  • Some of the other words we could use to talk about Personal Image Management are self-presentation, self-promotion, and professional presence. All of these words relate to our appearance, our sense of self, and our comfort level as we go about our day.
  • Image Management is an effective way to attract others—to encourage others to regard you favorably and with continued interest. Positive self-presentation is an open invitation to become acquainted with the person inside. It is an effective way to influence the opinion or actions of others. Effective Personal Image Management aids you in achieving personal and professional success.
  • Some people have a natural talent or ability to present themselves appropriately and attractively. Most do not. The good news is that Image Management skills can be learned, then practised till they become second nature.
