Image improvement plan

How can I put my image-improvement plan into practice? 
Follow the tips below to create and implement an image-improvement plan:

- Look at yourself as a product. If we were in the grocery store of life, why would someone pick us up off the shelf? Are we new and improved, repackaged? What can you do to make yourself a better brand?

- Identify the ways your image fits, or doesn't fit, what your company is trying to accomplish in the marketplace. Leverage what fits and adjust what doesn't.

- Throughout the day, imagine that a photograph was taken of you at each encounter you had with another person. At the end of the day, pretend you're putting together a photo album of all the pictures. What image would you have of yourself?
