Grooming in the workplace

Let's face it - how you dress does affect how you feel.  I've always said "if you look great - you feel great."   And it's especially true in the workplace.  

To me, there's nothing better than picking up 20 or 30 freshly laundered shirts at the cleaners (or perhaps I took the time to iron a few myself).  I believe, in the workplace, that when you feel great people notice.   When people notice, they let you know by saying things like:   "Hey nice shirt!"   "Wow, you look amazing!"  "Did you do something different?"  And these little pats on the back lift your spirits, give you more energy, and actually can help make you more productive throughout the day.  Don't get me wrong.  Productivity is so much more than how much you did for your boss.  It's a feeling, a state of mind, and a sense of empowerment for oneself.  I think we all deserve to feel that way each and every day. 

So whether you're an employee getting up at 6a.m. every day to get the job done, or perhaps you're the leader of your organization, send out the positive message that grooming, image, and attire are all important, and relative to the company.  Not just to look great - BUT TO FEEL GREAT!!! 

HELPFUL HINT:  Many department stores such as Macy's, JCPenney, Nordstrom all have personal shoppers who can help put a few wardrobe pieces together for you.  It doesn't take 50 items.  By mixing and matching 2 pants or slacks with 5 to 10 different tops, you've got a great wardrobe for the entire season.
