Ready to become a slightly different person than the one who walked in the door this morning? Let’s go from head to toe, stem to stern, and give you a nine-point leadership tuneup to shape your image into something a little more impactful than the job title etched on your door.

Chances are you’re not entirely aware of the vocal patterns that define you and stick in people’s minds when you speak.

A safer but still intriguing bet is to follow the herd while adding a single flourish to your look to make them remember you. A unique pin, a bold tie, a watch of unusual manufacture, these stick in the memory.

YOUR SIGNOFF
Consider ditching the clever tagline you append to your email signature. Those you write to often are sick of looking at it; others may think you’re trying too hard to brand yourself. And if you tend to change it a lot, people will start to wonder just how obsessed you are with trying to seem clever.
