Because of the quarantine, many people are working from home. Ahhhh, the joy of
working from home. Yes and no. With children at home from school, life can be
hectic. There is much to do and not enough time. However, the show must go on at
work. If you are a professional, how does that affect the way you dress in a world
where meetings happen on Zoom, Skype or some other form of digital media?
There are articles flying around the Internet where people apologize for the first five
minutes of a Zoom meeting. Not only does that take away from productivity, it may
have an impact on your image.
With that said, we are in a new paradigm for our professional lives. In the past, we
were told to dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Except, have all of
those rules flown out of the window? Will people be held to the same standards as
they were in the office? With all the political correctness, there may be a chance we
are forgiven for untidy appearance. Except, long term this new paradigm may be
the source of self-sabotage for a career that was on the fast track.
For this show, we will have another guest. His name is Cedric Gray. He is an image
consultant extraordinaire. He understands the impact clothes have on your image
and how it causes others to respond to you. While he understands there may be
leniency in this Covid-19 environment, he knows people can become too laxed in
their own home. Work is still work. Color, size and casual attire still matter.
Let’s talk about strategies for the best way to dress in this new digital work world.
