Visual impact at work

The People Factor believe if you make a positive impact visually, it will give you the confidence to behave how you want to be perceived. Humans naturally judge each other, consciously or unconsciously. Our perceptions of each other’s abilities are made within the first few minutes of meeting. Our ‘look’ and body language accounts for 55% of how we communicate and are perceived. Therefore, how we dress plays an important part in how you are perceived by others, especially in the work place. If you wear something that makes you look relevant and feel fabulous, your body language and behaviour will reflect this. To help clients achieve greater potential, The People Factor are able to help, firstly by offering a ‘colour analysis’ service and have chosen a premier fashion boutique located in Northampton, ‘Berties’. They take pride in finding you the best collections from all over the world. Take advantage of their personal styling, advising you on the latest trends, what suits your body shape, working environment, work function. Fundamentally you will find it a fun and transformational experience.  If you’d like to book a session, get in touch.
