Do heads turn when you enter a room?
If not, your image may not be powerful enough. There are no unattractive people; only people who have not learned how to look attractive. At the Impression Strategies Institute, you will learn all the tricks of the trade for enhancing your image and that of your clients. It's not about Hollywood glamour.

You acquire ultimate confidence and you will be able to pass this on to your clients as well.

Barbara Walters was right when she said, "There are few times in your life when it isn't too melodramatic to say that your destiny hangs on the impression you make."

Whether you are a CEO making a first address to your company, a sales representative at a trade show, or the first woman to rise up the ranks and head a department or division, the impression that you make is going to determine the quality of the relationship thereafter.

The Mona Lisa Effect ,
Do you know the color of Mona Lisa's dress? Do you know the colors of objects in the background of this famous painting? Chances are, you remember only the overall impression of Mona Lisa. And, no, she was not wearing a black dress, as most people have remembered.

The Mona Lisa Effect , is when you cannot glance at a person. You want to gaze...and the memory of the person stays in your mind long after he or she has left the room.

When it comes to image, the devil is in the details. And yet, the sum total is greater than all its parts. That sum total is the impact that you make upon others. When one element of your image is dated or out of sync, that is all that is noticed or remembered. It is when every single element is in harmony that a powerful impact is made. Then it is you they remember, not your suit, your tie, your dress, your earrings. All those things will, of course, be part of the powerful impact you make upon others, but no one can put their finger on why you always look so dynamic, so powerful. Just like Mona Lisa's haunting memory.

At the Impression Strategies Institute , we are concerned with overall impression, not just image. In the world of impression strategies, when you do it right, details are not what is remembered, only the overall impression or impact.

When working with individuals or corporate group workshops, we don't just talk about clothes, image, fashion, makeup or Power Dressing; we stress the importance of learning the secret to exuding an overall impression that captivates and creates a lasting and favorable impression. Just like Mona Lisa.

Perception is everything. If you look like everyone else and do not look distinctive in some way, you may be perceived as ordinary. If your clothing, accessories or hair look dated, it will be assumed that your products or services are dated.

Without ever saying a word, your image can say that you are a leader or a follower. That you are flashy instead or classy - or dreary and tired instead of dynamic. Your image can be a powerful tool or it can be a detriment to your success.

Long-lasting and comprehensive first impressions are made in the first two seconds, according to a recent study by Harvard University. A do-it-yourself image is tantamount to playing Wardrobe Roulette™ with your future.

If you are serious about getting ahead, Sandy Dumont, THE Image Architect, can help you gain confidence, improve your bottom line and even change your life.
