Dress to impress for work;

Dressing to impress is not just about what you wear, but includes your overall personal presentation;

Dressing to impress for work is not necessarily about dressing expensively, but rather, wearing clothing suitable for the work place. This includes looking clean and confident with good personal hygiene and grooming. Make an effort to incorporate a bit of style that will make you stand out and reflect your personality.


The images show examples of business outfits for men and women, especially for work interviews or a corporate work environment.

To maintain the right impression at work, personnel should ensure clothes look clean, ironed and smart. Men should stick to subtle colours (Unless role states otherwise). Also, coordinating colours of trousers, socks and shoes work well together.

Women should avoid very high heel shoes as they are uncomfortable and unsuitable for work. For women, tops that show a lot of cleavage can be distracting and transmit the wrong message within an office environment. Women should stick to proper business dress code to retain respect especially amongst their male colleagues.

Understanding Personality & Diversity in team relationships @ work;

In addressing personality and diversity in team relationships at work, it is important to note that we are all uniquely different – our personalities determine how we perceive our environment, how we respond to people (or team), and to things happening around us. People are born with natural personalities but can also be influenced by upbringing or  relationships.

‘Ultimately, your personality could be described as the face you show the world, the you others get to know’ Cris Wildermuth*

Personality reflects individual behaviour, and differs from one person to another.

Diversity is basically associated with differences in culture, race or social orientation of various individuals. Individual personalities can adapt to the culture or social orientation they are associated with, however, this does not change the core of ones personality inwardly. 

To build a good rapport and achieve success working as part of a team, it is vital to understand  personality traits in relation to diverse cultures and how to harness these positively to achieve effective teamwork.
