How to enhance your management 'presence' instead of detracting from it:
- Early in your career, smarten up. Later, when you’ve proven yourself, you can relax.
- Dress for your audience. If you’re presenting or in an important meeting and key people will be wearing business attire, you should too. If you’re not sure, play it conservatively.
- Dress the way you feel comfortable. Otherwise, it’ll show.
- In most industries, super-fashionable attire is overdoing it. There are ways to stand out without looking like you’re trying to stand out.
- Don’t dress like a clone, unless that’s really you.
- Work isn’t a circus so don’t dress like a clown.
- If you’re not Steve Jobs, don’t dress like him. He can pull it off; you can’t. Get your own uniform!
