“How you look is how you're perceived” - Laura Darius -
Image Enhancement Coaching addresses the subtleties of an individual’s persona. In our visual culture, appearance is a symbolic statement of who an individual is relative to his culture. One’s image is a reflection of one’s self-perception.
Because others make assumptions based on perceptions, it is crucial to understand cultural symbols and project the image that best represents how one wants to be perceived.
Image Enhancement Coaching is often essential when executives are being considered for promotion to the next level and need to revise their image to suit that position.
Executive presence conveys a message of authority and leadership. Those that have instinctive presence are fortunate. Those who don’t have executive presence can acquire it with coaching and consistent practice.
This program is designed to develop and project the individual’s image as a dynamic leader.
Coaching addresses the elements that contribute or detract from executive presence. Issues addressed include: Voice, Posture, Body Language, Energy, Appearance, Refinement, Etiquette, Communication Style, Poise, Polish and Confidence.
Life is a "stage" as Shakespeare said. One's "character message" determines how one is perceived by others. Some individuals are unaware of how they are being perceived of the subtle messages they are projecting. Coaching orients individuals to cultural symbols as well as the visual and verbal messages they project. They learn how to correct what needs to be changed to project an appropriate “character message.”
This program is designed to develop self-awareness of how others perceive them.

Wellness Coaching For Image Enhancement
"A life story is the result of thoughts, choices and habits. Changing your thinking, vision and habits will transform your life one choice at a time" - Laura Darius -
Wellness Coaching deals with the deeper layers of creating an enhanced professional image. Programs and issues addressed are customized to the needs of the individual.
I use a holistic approach that empowers the whole person. When employees upgrade their diet, nutrition, exercise, manage stress and balance their work and home life, they look and feel better, communicate more effectively, are more focused, organized and productive. They radiate competence, confidence and positive energy. They are magnetic…people want to work for them and with them.

Stress causes cortisol and adrenalin levels to increase which in turn causesconfused unfocused thinking and speaking, nervousness, voice and breathing problems and mind blanks.

Stress can be controlled throughout the day both mentally and physically.
