On March 16, 2017 I had the honour of speaking with Dr. Stephanie Hampton Credle on her radio show The Chrysalis Zone. We discussed how people can demonstrate more assertiveness in life to get what they want. How do you move beyond AGGRESSIVENESS? How can women be heard without the rage? Listen in to find out more.

 

Presence Tip of The Day: Attraction

What is presence and why does it matter? When someone has an outstanding presence, they naturally draw people to them. Presence is captivating and in its purest sense radiates from someone who has total control and confidence within themselves. How we look on the outside does impact our ability to connect with and ultimately influence others. If we struggle to get past first impressions we will likely have a challenge connecting further.

So you might be saying, oh please Teca, who cares what other people think...that doesn't matter to me. Truth of the matter is though it would be great if this wasn't our reality, however, people will judge you at first sight based on how you appear. Is it right, I would say no because we are so much more than our appearance. However, that does not change the fact that it still happens.

Scientific studies have shown that humans are visually wired. 70% of our sensory receptors are located in our eyes. For those of us with eyesight, most of what we first encounter is processed visually. To deny this fact, is to our own peril.

So how do you make you appearance work to your advantage? Well, you can be intentional about putting your best self forward into the world. Your clothing, grooming, smile, body language, the finer details of your style are the outer elements that draws others to you.

Are you taking care of your appearance? Do you dress for success or are you just pulling garments together without a thought or strategy. Are you well groomed and dress appropriately for your body type, lifestyle and personality? Anyone, regardless of budget or circumstance, can look their best if they are intentional about it. 

In future posts I will go into more detail as to some of the things you can do to have a more captivating presence, starting with appearance. 

We are each uniquely designed and there is no cookie cutter approach to looking great. Dressing for success means owning what is unique to you and maximizing it to impact others. It is not only a smart thing to do, it is essential in what we know to be a hyper competitive job market and world.

What does your appearance say about you?

Leadership Tip of The Day: Magnetism

The Law of Magnetism says that we attract who we are. If you are a leader do the people on your team reflect your values, attitude and/or work ethic? Are you attracting people of like mind? Do they possess qualities that you desire or are they not in alignment with your vision or needs? If this is the case then there is a need to reflect inward as the law of Magnetism suggests that "who you attract is not determined by what you want. It's determined by who you are." As well, "if you think your people are negative, then you'd better check your attitude"  The same can be said about our personal journey. If we want positive energy, success, abundance and prosperity but instead we are attracting the opposite, we need to evaluate who we are at our core and what signals we ourselves are putting out.  If you are not attracting what you want, evaluate who you are as a person and leader and commit to grow your character and leadership.  If the thought of doing this seems overwhelming or you are having a hard time getting to the root of your issues, seek out mentors or professionals that can help you as you aim to improve yourself.  Best to you,

Leadership Tip of The Day: Confidence

How confident are you? Do you face new situations with an attitude that no matter what, you will be great? Or do you get a sinking feeling inside that perhaps, you aren't good enough?  Confidence takes time to build. When we take the time to get good at what we do, when we appreciate who we are absent of the opinions of others, when we feel prepared for our tasks and challenges...our confidence increases.  To be confident in our abilities and self we must first begin with the belief that we are in fact, good enough, worthy enough and capable enough. No matter the challenge or circumstance, confidence is a requirement to be successful at any endeavour.  Try to do one thing today that will help to boost your confidence in something that you fear.  Have a blessed day!
