One of the good things the last decade has brought us through
exploding technology, corporate downsizing and blurred vision, is the valuable addition of the coach.
Coaching has been around for a long time in different forms.
Until recently, coaching was associated only with sports and the arts. The job of the coach has always been to bring out the
best, to work toward excellence and make sure all the necessary elements are in place to assure success. When those elements are put in the context of IMAGE Coaching, it’s easy to
see the powerful alliance that exists in the client/coach relationship and why more and more people are recognizing the value.

more effectively or handle transitions smoothly, to name a few.

that will help you to build on your strengths and use your potential more fully.
A good coach will challenge

Your coach is someone who really listens and often acts as a sounding board.
Working with a coach gives you’re the opportunity to find the solutions you already have, that are
often blocked by the “stuff” of life.

for you if you aren't ready to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

If you are willing, I believe that you can:
Reach your highest potential
Make choices that work for you
Thrive in relationships that nurture you
Live your life around your value system. Completely.
Stop settling for second best and create a life that you really,
It’s about making the most of your life and the freedom to
love. That means loving who you are, loving what you do, loving life and those you choose to include in
yours. It’s about defining success. And making it happen.
n a coaching relationship, you more quickly and effectively move
from where you are right now to where you want to be. Coaching supports you in getting past the barriers that prevent you from being all that you know is possible.
Coaches operate on the premise that you already have the answers. By working with a coach, it allows
you to discover them and eliminate the unproductive elements of your life that zap your energy and produce unnecessary stress.
Pebbles don’t take up much space, but try thinking about something else if you have one in your shoe.

days. We all take ourselves to work. And we all take results of our workday home.
Both affect the quality of life. Having mental, physical, emotional, financial and spiritual reserves
can dramatically impact your life

A person's appearance reflects their personality's interests, attitudes, values, capabilities and goals. In your
social and business activities one must give the right impression to receive the right reward. Barbara Layne's image programs
will increase your ability of self-expression, personal style and overall appearance. It takes time, money, effort and educated
thought to create a personal style.
It is only natural to want to observe and analyze other
people. Impressions. We all make them. We all have them. However, let's not forget that while we are studying others,
we too, are being evaluated. Wherever we go, people immediately react to our appearance.
A good example of how presentation affects and influences others is the halo
effect, a phenomenon that occurs from the moment we encounter another person. It is the visual impression we initially make
on others, generated by our posture, body movements, facial gestures, and our clothing.
Image is your personal form of communication. Image creates that first impression.
So, look and feel sensational and in control every day!
Image impacts our lives in every way. Make YOUR image count!

in which you wish to be perceived along with retaining your own distinctive character. It is therefore important to evaluate
a clear idea of what you want to convey in your appearance message.
