The Business of YOU: Strategies for Leadership and Professional Success

Has someone ever caught your eye as soon as he or she walked into the room? Have you ever heard someone say, "I trusted her the minute I met her?" This is the wow factor and is often called executive presence - a blend of competencies, skills, energy and image that send all the right signals and play a big role in assumptions about a person's capabilities. What's more, it makes up 26 percent of what it takes to get promoted. It's the Business of You.

Learn how to develop your winning executive presence
and sway perception in your favor as THE leadership choice

If you are seeking career success, identifying your assets and how to leverage them can make the difference between advancing in your career, being tapped for leadership positions, successfully developing business, or staying right where you are. When you develop your presence, others take you more seriously, see you as capable, trust you more, and are more likely to consider you for promotion and increases in pay.

"Marion Gellatly spent time preparing for our employee image workshop and developed a tailored presentation, specific to our company and industry.  She did not use an off-the-shelf generic presentation.  She gathered information about our employees’ jobs, learned the types of attire that is expected for our industry, and showed specific examples of fabric choices, fabric colors, fit and tailoring, and clothing styles that would help our employees communicate their best image.  Marion was very honest, yet tactful, in dealing with discussion points such as grooming.  After the presentation, Marion remained to help individuals who wanted to ask her questions in private.  Many of us now subscribe to Marion’s “Ignite your Style” monthly style tips.  And, I’ve noticed that several employees are now wearing clothes that have a better fit, clothes that are more appropriate for work, and clothes that present a better more confident, polished image."
