A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Simply Her Magazine to give coaching advice on workplace persona and how one should carry oneself at work. Simply Her magazine is a consumer lifestyle guide in Singapore, with a readership of 110,000. It offers practical solutions on everything that interests the modern, working women, such as home, career, family, consumer, health, fashion, beauty, travel and self-empowerment.
As a case study, I was asked to offer my career coaching to a brand manager in a local company. The task entailed (1) shadowing her at work for 2 days – from being in meetings, interacting with colleagues, liaising with customers, talking on the phone, giving presentations, etc -, (2) observing how she carried herself in these situations, and (3) coaching on those areas – what were the positive areas, what could be improved, and in the process helping readers learn how to project their best workplace persona.
After the coaching wrapped up, we had a photoshoot as part of the article feature. My past media photoshoots were done in my home, and this was my first media photoshoot in a studio. It was a very fun experience, and the stylists and designers were very fun loving people too :D.
Here’s some pictures of the photoshoot to share with you guys:
