Conclusion

Many organisations have uniforms, a dress code or guidelines to ensure staff projects a consistent image to customers. At all time personal freshness, clean clothes and a professional appearance are essential. Personal presentation Many businesses - such as airlines and supermarkets - issue uniforms to their "front line" staff. There are many advantages - employees do not have to worry about what they wear, customers can easily spot the staff and the organisation projects a consistent image. Other businesses provide a dress code or guidelines which tell staff what they can and cannot wear at work. The guidelines should not discriminate against any particular groups of people, such as forbidding women to wear trousers. Body language Body language is the term given to the messages we transmit by our gestures, facial expressions and posture - and where we position ourselves in relation to other people. Gestures are used to converse with someone who is a distance away (and are usually better than shouting) and to emphasise what you are saying. Gesture often reveals your feelings - you may touch your hair or smooth down your clothes if you are nervous or want to make an impression. Shrugging your shoulders means you don't care, looking around says you are uninterested, putting your hands on your hips looks pugnacious. You clench your fists or demonstrate the whites of your knuckles if you are apprehensive or in pain. And if your customers start tapping a foot or drumming their fingers, it's a sign they are getting impatient. Your posture portrays your confidence and attitude. Positive people sit, stand and walk tall. They do not slouch or sit in a hunched up position. Folding your arms or crossing your legs is a defensive position and you will lower your head if you feel negative or are under attack. Leaning forward means you are interested whereas you lean back when you are relaxed or confident. Sitting upright means you are observant and interested. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
