Qualities we can all learn from and apply to our own context as a LadyBoss

All women are queens, but there are certain traits that beauty queens seem to emanate. We explore 6 qualities of beauty queens that we can all learn from and apply to our own context as a #LadyBoss in the office.

Charisma

All beauty queens are very likeable, have good energy and exude charisma. They are always smiling and appear to be genuinely happy – which makes others want to be around them. No one likes the office grouch. You can build your eminence around the office by being friendly, greeting people and offering help where you can. Building your eminence in the workplace will ultimately help grow your network.

Confidence

When a beauty queen walks in the room, you cannot help but notice her. She exudes confidence. One of the most significant ways for you to appear to have more confidence than you actually have is posture. Beauty queens walk with their head held high and shoulders back, which also creates the illusion of looking taller. Carrying yourself in this manner demands respect from the boardroom to an office event.

Charities

Beauty queens are often involved in charities, well, because they have to be. But that does not mean we cannot also follow their example. Corporate social initiatives (CSI) are very important to many companies, especially the larger ones where CSI is mandatory. Getting involved in your company’s CSI programme, or creating one if there isn’t one already – shows initiative and contribution to making an impact on the community. It is also beneficial to add CSI to your CV, which can be a differentiator for yourself and a draw card to other to other companies when applying for jobs.

Eloquent speech

Beauty queens are very well spoken. They annunciate, have good vocabulary and sincere tone. Strong verbal communication is a key requirement for most positions. By articulating yourself well in the office, you gain credibility. You will get more opportunities to interact with clients in person or over the phone, deliver presentations and have a voice in board meetings.

Beauty queens always look good

Beauty queens are always well put-together and their outfits turn heads. While we should not judge a book by its cover, what you wear to work inherently determines others’ perceptions of you. Ensure that the way you look aligns with how you wish to be perceived. This does not mean spending a lot of money on your outfits, but looking neat, respectable and well-coordinated goes a long way. When in doubt, slay with heels and red lipstick!

A winning attitude

Beauty queens are ambitious, have a drive to win and so should you. My mother always says “your attitude determines your altitude” #QOTD. A positive attitude, being proactive, being a problem solver and seeking opportunities to stretch you will guarantee success. Always be willing to push the boundaries and raise the bar.
