Developing Strategic Image
 
Quality services and products abound. However, only few sustain competition and beome the marketleaders. Similar is the case of individuals. Competent personnel abound, but only few get the recognitionand success. Lawyers are good example: Business graduates from the same insititution end up in their respective careers in an entirely different manner 
 – 
one reaches to the position of a Chairman, while theother retires with an unfulfilled motivation to become a Manger. This is common in almost all the professions be it Lawyers, Medical practioners, Businessmen, or Show business celibrities, etc. This phenominon also extends into the social life. One gets much higher respect while the other fails gel in.Looking at the underlying reasons, one can find that it is the image that matters the most. We all commanda unique reputation or image amongst our seniors, colleagues, customers, friends and family. Sometimesthe image is highly positive and we leverage it to take optimimum advantag of the opportunities thusimproving upon our chances to achieve our destined success. When our image is distorted then we lose outstragic-leverage and our chances to achieve our destined success fade away, unless certain miricaleshappen. What is image and how can we manage it. These are the two questions we shall try to answer inthis short article.Our image is what outsiders perceive of us as an individual in general and as a professional in particular.What others expect of us is ussually sume
d up as “Professionalism” in modern world. In verbatum it refers
to integrity, ingenuity, equity, candorness, rationality, emotional maturity, and last but not the least perfectionism as essential characteristics of a true professional. In simple words people expect us to live bywhat we proclaim; to discharge our responsibilities and honor others others rights in a befitting manner; toact justly; to fulfill our promises and commitments; to speak and support nothing but truth; to think andanalyze rationally and emotionally; to know what we say or do; so on and so forth. What one proclaimsand how s/he presents or conducts him self or her self in the real world creates an image. One can create asuperfacial image by proclaiming without fail but failing to live by in practice. Such images are short livedand could be much costlier. However, building a lasting image entails serious efforts to live in verbatium of what one proclaims.Followings are the recommended
DO’s
and
DON’Ts
of building lasting image in our modern world. Theserecommendations are based on my understanding of Quranic principles:
