The Image of Leadership is the result of Sylvie di Giustos journey through two career paths: one in the field of human resources, the other one as a professional image consultant. The title reflects the reality that everyone can and should acknowledge, which is that true leadership manifests itself in ways that are both seen and unseen.
This book will take you step-by-step through the development of your professional imprint. The focus will be on all of those things that people perceive about you, with an emphasis on your appearance and your image.

- YOU have to appear confident, authentic, professional, and respectful to be perceived as a leaderno matter your height, weight, color, age or gender.
- YOU have to look like a leader long before you are one.
- YOU have only 7 seconds to create an imprint of leadership.
- YOU have to show people your leadership, every day, consistently.
- YOU and only YOU can choose to present yourself as a leader, or not.
This book is written to be entertaining for leaders at all levels.

Sylvie says, People packaging is what I do. She is right. And she is great at it. In The Image of Leadership, Sylvie combines my marketing requirements of critical thinking and gut instinct. She uses scientific research, her years of experience, and, interestingly, her unique view as a European, to hone in on everything you need to do to improve your professional imprint.
