About Sheila Anderson

PASSION. It’s the one word that drives me in all I do. You will see it in my eyes. You will hear it when I speak and in how I behave and communicate. My greatest passion: people. I thrive on opportunities to inspire and empower individuals or corporations forge a link between who they are now and what they aspire to become. It’s impression management. It’s influence through image.

I am a certified corporate image consultant transforming the persona of corporate professionals across the country. My expertise enables executives at any level to polish every facet of their image – from appearance and attire to behavior and body language, spanning verbal and written communication. Image is everything and my expertise enables anyone to make a lasting and impactful impression.

Having a creative flair that cultivated in me from a very early age, I drew upon this gift and my desire to help others become their personal best. In 1992, I sought training to become a personal stylist. I co-owned a personal style company from 1992-2015.

In early 2015, I furthered my education by enrolling in the Studio for Image Professionals completing both the Corporate Image Consulting and Menswear Courses. Image Power Play was born.

I have over 20 years’ experience in the corporate world, from being the front desk receptionist to becoming a Brand Manager. First impression is at the core of each of these positions.

As a trained professional model through Professional Image Model and Talent Agency in Sioux Falls, SD, I have a keen understanding of how to present yourself in the best possible way, whether it be for a photoshoot, TV commercial, on a stage to how you show up for a modeling job. It’s about projecting a professional image with your posture and body language, bringing about the correct emotions through voice, and knowing what wardrobe choices fit the job. I was named first runner-up in the 2012 Mrs. South Dakota-America pageant and served as a judge for the 2015 pageant.

Community is important to me, and I treat my community as family. I am a long-time member of Cosmopolitan International, a service club that raises money for diabetes education and research. In 2013-14 I proudly held the office as the organization’s International President, being only the third woman since its inception in 1918 to hold this prestigious office. I served on the board of the Cosmopolitan Diabetes Foundation in 2015 and 2016. I sit on the adult advisory board of Simon Says Give - Sioux Falls.

You will find me very active on Social Media platforms. I host an EXPERT group of Image Consultants on Google+. I love to share. I love to learn.

MY LIFE. I was born and raised in South Dakota. I appreciate my Midwestern values and work ethic that I grew up with and believe that plays a role in how I treat people and my dedication to getting things done. I am calm and have a ton of patience. I want resolution and understanding. I don’t believe in an “us vs. them” attitude but more of how we can collaboratively work together. I will get in the trenches with people to do the work that needs to be done. I love art, Mexican food, dogs, being on the water, yoga, and my guilty pleasure: cars … fast cars!

Influence Through Image.

INFLUENCE MATTERS. Define yourself before others define you!

The Power of 7 Seconds...

Ninety percent of information transmitted to our brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in our brains than words. Every moment of every day you are influencing others through your image in both your personal and professional life. You are always being judged, and it happens almost instantaneously, in just 7 seconds. This plays a profound role on how others treat you and when the tables are turned, how you treat them.

As an image consultant, you may think that all I am going to help you with is what to wear. Well, that’s only part of your image. Looking good is not enough. In addition to your appearance, your image is made up of how you behave, your communication skills both verbally and nonverbally, and even your social media imprint. Think about this: are you being perceived in the way you want to be? Are you showcasing your potential? Are you telling the true story of who you are?

A Leader Worth Following

Does the outside cover match the inside? Quite often there is a disconnect. I connect people to themselves. I teach you how not to waste those 7 seconds.

If you strive to be a leader in your field, the ability to influence others is essential. The more you reflect the qualities that make up a professional image, the greater your potential to gain the influence you desire and create that all-important edge. It’s your power play.

Once you understand the leader you want to be, together we will create the appropriate executive image needed to achieve your goals. The end result: you will harness the power of influence by your professional imprint, including how you look, the way you behave and communicate, and your digital footprint … converting that influence into success. You will become a leader worth following. It’s time to go ALL IN with your image.
