SYLVIE'S POWER OF CHOICE FRAMEWORK

AND WHY IT WORKS FOR CONSTRUCTiON AND MANufActuriNG PROFESSIONALS.

ALL EYES ARE ON YOU. ALWAYS!

VISUAL INTELLIGENCE

Learn about the impact of visual stimuli
Understand the significance of your appearance
Boost your self-confidence

APPEARANCE

BODY IMAGE (WEIGHT, HEIGHT)
HEALTH (PHYSICAL, MENTAL)
CLOTHES (FIT, STYLE, QUALITY, MAINTENANCE, ETC.)
ACCESSORIES, JEWELRY
SKIN, HAIR, MAKEUP, GROOMING

ALL EYES ARE ON YOU. ALWAYS!

While we may consciously understand not to judge based on appearances, it’s remarkable how often unconscious judgments still influence us. Our brains instinctively seek familiar images from our memory banks when encountering new individuals. Whether it’s their attire, size, race, or abilities, these visual cues can trigger snap judgments that impact our decision-making and interactions. By cultivating awareness of these unconscious responses through Sylvie’s insights, professionals in the construction and manufacturing industry can approach their interactions with students, colleagues, and stakeholders with greater openness. This intentional shift allows them to connect authentically and dispel preconceived narratives. Moreover, as leaders in their field, they’ll recognize that others unconsciously assess them based on appearance too. Armed with this understanding, they can present themselves in a way that fosters engagement, open dialogue, mutual respect, and professionalism amidst the physically demanding environment they navigate daily.

Professionals in the construction and manufacturing industry gain insight into the hidden influence of appearances, liberating themselves from hasty judgments. With intentional and poised presentations, they shape an atmosphere of mutual respect and professionalism, forging impactful connections that transcend superficial boundaries.

BEHAVIORIAL INTELLIGENCE

Recognize the power of behavioral cues
Uncover the hidden drivers of behavior
Cultivate situational awareness

ATTITUDE, CHARISMA
INTERNAL & EXTERNAL SELF-AWARENESS
EMOTIONAL BALANCE
ETHICS AND MORALS
DIPLOMACY AND COURTESY
CROSS-CULTURAL SENSITIVITY

YOUR MOOD DOESN'T LiE!

In the construction and manufacturing industry, comprehending the motives behind someone’s actions remains elusive. Unconscious factors, ranging from financial pressures to workplace challenges or time pressure, can be at play. With a focus on behavioral intelligence, professionals learn to see beyond surface behaviors, maintaining a composed and clear perspective while addressing the underlying issues. By being fully present in conversations and interactions, they gain valuable insights into their own behaviors, enabling them to make deliberate adjustments for achieving mutually beneficial outcomes. For construction and manufacturing leaders, mastering behavioral intelligence extends beyond understanding their teams; it delves into their own attitudes, habits, and character—the very essence influencing their conduct. Those who embrace behavioral intelligence cultivate profound awareness of their reactions, motivations, and triggers. Recognizing the influence of unconscious drivers in their responses to colleagues and challenging situations, they prioritize self-awareness and reflection, optimizing their impact and leaving a lasting positive legacy for their employer.

Construction and manufacturing professionals gain valuable insight into the profound impact of behavioral cues, liberating themselves from hasty judgments or actions. With purposeful demeanor, they foster an atmosphere of mutual respect and growth, nurturing a learning environment that transcends surface interactions.

WORDS HAVE POWER. SILENCE Too.

In the dynamic world of construction and manufacturing, communication is not merely a two-way street; it resembles a 10-lane superhighway! While words take up just one lane, everything from facial expressions to gestures and even volume occupies the others. As professionals in this industry heavily rely on in-person interactions, they encounter numerous opportunities where a single misstep in communication could have significant consequences. Hence, it is crucial for construction and manufacturing experts to be mindful of how they come across in their interactions and adeptly modify their verbal and nonverbal communication to convey their intended messages effectively. Through intentional choices, construction and manufacturing professionals align their inner emotions with their desired external perception, presenting themselves with composure, openness, acceptance, clear thinking, and confidence. By mastering this skill, they ensure that their audience, be it their colleagues or clients, can receive their messages without any interference from verbal and nonverbal noise that might otherwise cloud the communication channels. Through heightened awareness of their perceptions, construction and manufacturing professionals become better equipped to regulate their emotions, allowing their emotions to serve their communication goals instead of being an impediment.

Construction and manufacturing professionals embrace the potential of communication intelligence, mastering the art of impactful expression. Through proficiency in both verbal and nonverbal cues, they nurture an environment of mutual understanding and empathy, fostering profound connections that enrich every interaction.​

DIGITAL COMES FIRST.

Construction and manufacturing professionals navigate a digital landscape where thoughts can be instantly shared with potentially millions. One unchecked tweet, a thoughtless photo, an angry email, or an awkward moment in a virtual meeting can cause irreparable harm to their reputations, relationships, and careers. Moreover, the accuracy and frequency of their online activity, the currency of their profiles, accessibility to help or information, and the ability to handle technological issues all influence how others perceive them. These intentional and unintentional digital footprints become indelible marks that linger. Digital intelligence empowers intentional choices in digital communication, sparing reputations, relationships, and careers from impulsive expressions. It’s not about censorship but ensuring that emotions and unawareness don’t drive their online presence. As the saying goes, “The internet is forever.” Equipping construction and manufacturing professionals with heightened awareness before posting, emailing, or video conferencing can prevent future damage and leave influential digital impressions that may determine face-to-face encounters.

Construction and manufacturing professionals develop the expertise to traverse the virtual landscape with discernment. Through intentional choices online, they protect their reputation and relationships, nurturing a digital presence that exudes professionalism and thoughtfulness, making a lasting positive impact on themselves, their employer and their industry community.

SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE

Curate your social landscape intentionally
Evaluate the physical spaces you occupy
Create an environment that fosters success

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH WHOM?

Construction and manufacturing professionals need to understand that their social life is interconnected with their inner life, influencing one another in a continuous loop. The people they associate with reflect and impact their perceptions, emotions, and mental state, all of which shape their behavior and decision-making. Hence, it is crucial for professionals in this industry to evaluate both their inner and social lives to ensure they align with their desired outcomes. When construction and manufacturing professionals surround themselves with uplifting, inspiring, and like-minded individuals, they experience heightened confidence, agency, resilience, and support. This positive social network enables them to collaborate effectively with colleagues and partners who may hold different perspectives, be it on projects, strategies, or goals. Family, friends, and their professional network all contribute to their perceptions, but they also influence how others perceive them. Building strong social Intelligence empowers professionals to be mindful of the impressions their social circle conveys about their values, beliefs, and principles, ensuring alignment with their personal and professional objectives.

Construction and manufacturing professionals gain insight into the dynamic interplay of their inner and outer lives. By cultivating a network of supportive, inspiring, and like-minded individuals, they nurture a sense of confidence, resilience, and foster fruitful collaborations.

Ultimately, the development of intentional choices on these five cornerstones will empower construction and manufacturing professionals to communicate and relate more effectively in all aspects of their work, from face-to-face interactions to written communication and online presence. Embracing intentional choices unifies all these cornerstones, enabling an understanding of the interplay between visual, behavioral, verbal/nonverbal, digital, and social intelligence, and the profound impact professionals can have when their decision-making is guided by Sylvie’s exclusive Power of Choice™ framework.
