  • We'll qualify what's great and what does not support your current goals.
  • We will create a wardrobe plan for the key events and situations that are top of mind.
  • Where necessary, we list any items needed to complete outfits with an action for how/when to fill them in.


The end result is a closet full of things to wear that reflect who you are and express who you want to be.

Image Development Coaching Process

What's best for you?

Communicating with Confidence in Your Business and Personal Life

Mastering the art of networking. How to effectively develop rapport with strangers and transform them into mutually beneficial relationships. Being at ease in any social situation. Becoming familiar with unfamiliar events.


Verbal Communication

How one speaks, listens, expresses and chooses one's words, diction and phraseology, telephone, electronic and face-to-face communication  etiquette. 


Etiquette and Protocol 

 The appropriate forms of address; meetings, greetings and strategic seating; general  conversation dos and don'ts. 


Our coaching processis designed to teach you how to manage the perception messages you

send out using your signature style;  identify, maximize and leverage your image assets.

Every coaching process is tailored to address the needs, objectives

and budgets of our clients.

Developing an image that truly represents you at your best, which genuinely and clearly communicates to others

who you are, is a process that takes time, self-awareness and some visualization.  


It's a process that, with the proper tools and guidance, can open doors in both your personal and professional life.  


It can simplify your life, make best use of your budget, reclaim time, strengthen your relationships, as well as provide

you with the confidence and conviction to be your absolute best.  


As your life-goals and lifestyle change, so will your image goals.  With the right tools you will be able to adjust your

visual image to suit those life changes.

Focus on

Image, Appearance & Style

 

    This typical process starts with:


   1)  A complete assessment of image, personal, business and/or                 lifestyle goals, components of image and a beginning wardrobe plan.


   2)  An assessment of the current wardrobe (Shop Your Closet).


   3)  Wardrobe Acquisition, otherwise known as Personal Shopping.


   4)  Optional ongoing Image and Image Communication Coaching.

​​​​We have two often requested paths, each with a different emphasis:

  • One focuses on theVisual Image -  personal presence  (clothing, signature style, finishing touches and comportment)
  • The second focuses on the Communication Style  (media & presentation preparation, behavior, leadership  & interpersonal relations)

  ​​

Both increase your Professional Presence and Personal Impact, will save valuable time, increase confidence

and ultimately position you for new opportunities.

​​Whether you are someone with a closet full of clothes but feel like you have "nothing to wear" 

or seeking an Image Management Plan to help you confidently navigate through uncertain territories,

we have a Development Plan for you.

All new clients, men and women, begin with an assessment.

The following additional topics can be addressed in both the coaching sessions

for individuals, as well as in group formats:


Communication Coaching Sessions are completely YOU focused. 


The first step is an assessment of your personal communication style (DISC included), to understand your natural strengths and tendencies for us to leverage.  We'll transform any limitations into assets as we work on the skills practice and mastery.  With the assessment as a foundation and launch point, we can outline your objectives with clear outcomes.  Together, we then map out a coaching process listing the specific skills to be practiced and mastered, including the time frames for the sessions.


Typically, sessions are 45 to 75 minutes long with time in between for skills practice and assimilation.  

The first two sessions are in person. Others may be scheduled by phone for convenience.


A 5-session package includes theDISC profile and two additional 15-minute phone meetings if needed.  

Best results are achieved when the 5-session package is completed within 2 months. 



​​​​​Our trained consultants become your personal Image Support Team and work with you, keeping your

image goals, visual identity, personality, budget and lifestyle in mind.  Understanding each of these elements

and how they interrelate is essential to effectively creating a personal style that represents your honesty and

supports you in reaching your goals.  


We have discovered that the combination of services which have the most immediate impact, give you the most

useful tools for future image management and provide the most long-range savings, is ​Color Assessment, then

Body & Style Analysis with either "Shopping in Your Closet" or Personal Shopping. ​




​By the end of your coaching, you will be able to

manage your image with confidence and drive your life with conviction. 

  IMAGE COACHING  1 : 1


Don't let a lack of communication skills, clarity or a possible discomfort of speaking

derail your career or personal success.


    ​Step ​​3: 

    Wardrobe Acquisitions or "Shopping the Stores"


    Key Highlights:


    We shop with you to build a wardrobe that supports your goals, styles and budget.

    Because we have pre-shopped (research is included) most of the guesswork and

    overwhelm is handled. Our clear purpose is to find your item that build upon your

​    existing wardrobe, fill in accessory gaps, and/or take you in a new direction that

    supports your image and lifestyle goals. In the dressing room you will learn the inside

    secrets to accessories, balance, proportion and color combinations along with the

    role of fabrics. We shop with you and help you become a savvy shopper.


You become more decisive and confident with your
