May 16, 2011 Not many
people could deny that
Wonder Woman does a great job at work. Wonder Woman
works for the honest and law abiding American citizens, of course, and is
a model worker who is intelligent, competent, and resourceful. Wonder
Woman is also a great American patriot as her theme song suggests:
".......in her satin tights, fighting for your rights, and the old red,
white, and blue"!
However, for all of Wonder
Woman's virtues at work, she does have one major problem. She takes a lot
of heat over her choice in work clothes. Over the last
Wonder Woman has received many complaints
that her clothing is inappropriate for work. In fact there have been so
many complaints that it is one of the main reasons
Wonder Woman is about to be fired.
There are enough challenges you
will face at work these days, and you don't want your wardrobe to be
something that is holding you back or even threatening your employment. Back
in April 2011 we wrote "It may not be fair or a even an accurate way of
evaluating someone, but we are judged by our
appearance. Study after study
demonstrate how our
appearance affects our success and interaction
with others. If you are at a job interview, sales call, or giving a
presentation of some sort, your appearance could help drive your points or
completely distract others from the value your words and expertise bring."
Take a lesson from Wonder Woman and dress appropriately for work today!
