Philosophy & Approach

Philosophy & Approach

As a coach, I find most people by mid-career have not seen themselves on video except when giving a presentation or in a personal video. They have very little idea how their everyday moments are fueling others perceptions of them.

“People are so unaware of what they reveal. Everyone expects to see what they do wrong on their video. What they don’t realize is how much they do well and exactly what garners respect or causes others to consider them to be an influencer.”  

 

Perhaps you think that presentations, personal branding, and positioning will get others to see you as you want to be seen.

When you look through the lens of what you’re putting out there, others are forming perceptions of you based on everyday moments along with your impression management efforts.

To know what you are putting out there you need multiple lenses.

Lens#1:  are you self-aware of your impact and influence on others?

Lens #2: are you others aware and able to read signals and interpret behavior?

Lens #3:  are you context aware when communicating and able to factor in hidden expectations

Lens#4:  are you able to navigate differences, disagreements and disruptions in ways that bring others along?

 

“In our visual, very competitive, digital world, there’s little opportunity to fly under the radar.”

 

If you are taking charge of your career, you need to integrate Individual Perception Management deliberately into your personal and professional development plans.

If you need to take your leadership abilities up a few levels, individual perception management will give you a distinct advantage.

As a Perceptions Management coach, I use video and audio to capture an accurate reflection of what you are putting out there.

The process helps you become more attuned to how everyday situations can and do reveal significant details to others. Many are reputation builders, while others are credibility robbers.

 

“People are so unaware of what they reveal. Everyone expects to see what they do wrong on their video. What they don’t realize is how much they do well and exactly what garners respect or causes others to consider them to be an influencer.”
