Image Tip

Here is an interesting video of the world leaders arriving at a gala event at the G20 conference in Argentina.

What were two major "power image" mistakes?

Look over the video one more time. You'll probably spot it because two of the leaders did the same thing. The answer is given below.

[Chancellor Merkel and Prime Minister May each violated a power image rule by carrying a purse. Why is that a power image problem? Because the top person doesn't carry things. Staff members carry things. And you certainly don't want to appear to be on a shopping expedition. Could Margaret Thatcher have gotten away with carrying a purse? Sure, because she was MARGARET THATCHER. Life is unfair.]
