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.

In 2016 I proudly became a C-Suite Network Advisor. The most trusted network of advisors to the C-Suite. This is an elite group of select thought leaders, coaches, trainers, authors, speakers, and content creators who service C-Suite executives and enterprise businesses. Each advisor is an expert in their industry and the network vets all applicants before they are accepted into the group. C-Suite Network is the world’s most trusted network of C-Suite leaders with a focus on providing growth, development, and networking opportunities.

In 2017 I continued to further my education by training with Alyce Parsons, President of Universal Style International and Founder of the Association of Image Consultants International, on the Universal Style System, recognized as the “Gold Standard" of style systems in the International Image Industry. I earned the designation as Certified Universal Style Consultant.

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.

Corporate Image Consultant | Speaker

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!

Making You Strategically Visible

Image Power Play believes everyone is the Chief Experience Officer of his or her personal brand. Connecting with a purpose is always top of mind throughout the entire strategic process.

Image Power Play is an impression management and personal brand company dedicated to bringing forth intentional, consistent, and authentic interactions with others. The company is focused on creating influence through image. Sheila Anderson, CEO and Founder, works with emerging and established leaders, as well as companies, that put value on proper positioning and being strategically visible in the space they want to own.

Gaining a Return on Image® puts measurable value on the impact one’s image has personally and professionally. Image Power Play’s return on image® services create real value and elevate leaders to meet their goals and grow their influence. This is done by taking a strategic look at every aspect of a person’s image – spanning from appearance and behavior to how one communicate both verbally and nonverbally to a social media strategy and community interactions.

The I.C.U. Rule™

Image Power Play designed The I.C.U. Rule™, a process to work with leaders to lean into personal style and authentic brand. Through an analysis phase, leaders focus in on being intentional before encounters occur. After gaining clarity in the analysis phase, the focus moves into executing personal style and image through disciplined consistency. Once leaders look inward and defined who they are and consistently execute authentic style elements into the spaces of their lives, the last phase of I.C.U. is you. The U step is really about solidifying the brand experience by prioritizing others (you) and relationships, audiences, and communities. These steps result in career advancement, increasing one’s center of influence, and being recognized as a leader.

Image Power Play offers personal branding strategies through one-on-one coaching, corporate coaching, workshops, and keynote speeches.
