People can SEE your COMB-OVER
The following might be tough to read for some men readers.
Let me explain.
When I ask senior leaders what behaviour or attitude has paid off for them in their careers, many say ‘Transparency, Candour, Frankness’ and similar words.
The top performers I work with don’t hide who they are. They realise that whenever someone sees them or hears them it forms an impression and a potential for loss or for gain.
With transparency and the thought that you’re always leaving an impression in mind, let me suggest this (and excuse my temerity):
That, if you have a ‘comb-over’, you consider changing your hair style so there is no comb-over. This may mean shaving a part of your head that has thinned or shaving your entire head.
I’m not suggesting this is an easy thing to do.
However, in my view, ‘hiding’/covering over the skin of your head, is not consistent with a transparent presentation of yourself to the world.
Own the Conversation
Consider doing this
- Get trusted person(s) feedback on your hairstyle.
- If you decide to change your hairstyle, discuss styling options with your hair cutter – that convey a transparent presentation of yourself.
