[040] Your Professional Image When You Work From Home
Show Notes

How to maintain a professional image when you work from home. This is a question many emerging leaders are asking themselves in 2020. 

When you work from home, it’s tempting to opt for comfortable clothing such as activewear, loungewear or pyjamas. However, these outfit choices can have an impact on your level of productivity and confidence when you work from home.

A 2020 study by CouponFollow with 1,000 remote workers found that 80% of people who dress more formally felt more productive throughout the day.

Personally, I’ve found when I lift my level of formality in my WFH outfits, I immediately feel more confident and I’m more productive in my work. 

In this episode of The Leadership Pod, I talk more about this issue and I share with you some ideas on what you can wear when you work from home.

You will learn:

  • More about the CouponFollow study of remote workers.
  • How outfits choices impact your level of productivity.
  • The issue of no separation between our personal and professional selves.
  • Easy outfit ideas to help you maintain professionalism when you work from home.
