Ana Cheong Cheok Yin

Mindfulness in Consulting (0.2 CEUs Chinese Session)

Ana Cheong Cheok Yin, AICI CIP

In consulting, the ability to listen, having the capacity to pay attention to details, holding the natural ability to communicate clearly, providing relevant feedback & recommend effective solutions proficiently are essential skills that makes one a great consultant. This is why “mindfulness” is extremely important. Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, so that the mind is fully attending to what is being done at that point in time. This may seem trivial but we often realize (only in hindsight) that our mind often takes flight midway through work & we seem to get engrossed in obsessive thoughts about something that just happened or worrying about the future that hasn’t happened -  and all that can easily lead to poor consulting. Mindfulness is not a spiritual practice or some philosophical guff. It is all about cultivating a greater awareness of “self” and the devotion to break free from old habits & thought patterns that hinder transformation of goals into reality.

在咨询方面,具备倾听能力、注重细节、保持清晰沟通的本能、提供相关反馈并熟练地推荐有效的解决方案,这些都是让人成为优秀顾问的基本技能。这就是为什么“觉察”非常重要。 觉察是人们全神贯注感受当下的本能,这是心灵完全关注在此时此刻所做的事的状态。 这看起来似乎微不足道,但我们经常意识到(或后知后觉)我们的思维经常在工作中途失去专注力,而我们常着重于思考刚刚已发生的事情或过度担心还未发生的事情,而这一切很容易导致咨询效率降低。觉察并非一种精神练习或一些哲学上的胡言。这一切都是为了培养更高的“自我觉察意识”,以及突破将目标转化为现实的阻碍及旧习惯和思维模式。

(B/I/A) Learning Outcomes

By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Identify how closed cognition hinders professional growth and business development
  • Practice open cognition to enhance client-consulting outcome and improve focus on building business
  • Identify key habits that cause loss of focus
  • Avoid a wandering mind
  • Develop a life-long mindfulness practice

Facetelling: What Facial Features Tell about your Client? (0.2 CEUs English Session)

Cris Alves, Image Consultant, Face Analysis Specialist

Although it takes up only 1/8 of body proportions, the face is the element of greater impact in personal image. It is the point of visual and affective contact with everything around and it's responsible for 80% of the judgments formed in first impressions - the visual language of facial features is the factor most quickly interpreted by the brain. Thus, the reading of facial features is a valuable analysis tool for understanding people's behavioral and personality tendencies, with scientific basis. This presentation will provide image consultants with practical tools for identifying the shapes and proportions of clients' facial features, as well as reading each of them according to Morphopsychology (also named Facial Psychology). Through the study of each element of the face (forehead, eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth, chin, asymmetries and face dimensions), we will teach the techniques for proper facial analysis by connecting it to behavioral areas and "noises" in the clients' image.

(I) Learning Outcomes
By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Describe the process of neural image creation;
  • Recognize how face elements affect first impressions (before clothing);
  • Identify and nominate lines and forms of facial features - forehead, eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth and chin - in frontal and profile plans;
  • Analyze face segments (upper, middle and lower thirds) and their relationships with the visual balance and behavioral tendencies;
  • Analyze face asymmetries, interpret their meanings and find ways to harmonize them;
  • Identify the emotional and behavioral tendencies of each facial feature.

Know Yourself: Grow Your Wealth (0.2 CEUs English Session)

Cindy Ann Peterson, B.S., AICI CIC

In our ever-expanding world of style and image experts, one problem that often arises is the question of what differentiates one image consultant from another. With similar services and training, it's virtually impossible to distinguish one consultant from another. Every consultant needs to understand that their competitive advantage and brand equity doesn't just come from their training and experience. It is the historical context of where they were born and raised, and major influences in their lives that makes each consultant unique.   There is no cookie cutter solution for what defines the best in the field. What is the best image consultant for one client can be the worst for another. Knowing how to apply your own personal history and adapt to your client should be the foundation for your brand. When plotting a course to success, image and style consultants need to understand that their unique value proposition doesn’t just come from their training and professional experience.
