On the 17th of July 2020, HCL Technologies announced that its founder and chairman Mr. Shiv Nadar stepped down from the role and the company’s Board of Directors has appointed his daughter, Mrs. Roshni Nadar Malhotra, as the new chairperson.
Who is Roshni Nadar?
Roshni Nadar Malhotra is the CEO and Executive Director of HCL Corporation, responsible for providing strategic guidance to the organization. She is also the Chairperson on the Board of HCL Technologies and its CSR Committee.
Now let’s get to the Image she resonates as the CEO of HCL
DRESS for the ROLE
As an Image Consultant, I always recommend my clients dress up for the role they want to see themselves in, not what they are now. This is because your clothing and grooming affects the way you think, feel, act, and the way others react and respond to you.
This is the same Roshni Nadar, before getting promoted as the CEO of HCL.
Here, she projects the image of a relaxed, consistent, informal, cooperative, flexible, functional, and an approachable person. Also, her attire is in the “Business Casual” part of the Indian style scale. However, this is not an acceptable look for a person in the leadership role.
When Ms. Roshni Nadar was promoted as the CEO on the 17th of July, the following image was released by HCL Technologies.
This picture gives the image of an entirely different person in comparison with the previous picture. In this picture, Ms. Roshni Nadar projects the image of an Authoritative, Official, Credible, Persuasive, More Formal, Precise, and Stable personality.
She has chosen a dark color blouse which has a dark value color contrast. Also, the fitted blouse and the long sleeves also extend formality. Her accessories are angular, signifying a higher level of authority. However, the zipper is an unnecessary design detail present in her outfit. I would recommend a structured fabric to increase the visual authority as the fabric is very soft and pliable which lowers the visual authority. Her fabric and the cowl neckline shows her soft feminine nature.
Her makeup is a soft smokey eye with muted lips. This look goes well with her attire. The focal point is her eyes which show confidence, power, and stability.
Her hairdo is much more tamed and straight which again communicates a high level of authority.
Her hands are clenched together in the middle position. According to the research by Nierenberg and Calero (HTRAPLAB), this was a frustration gesture, signaling that the person was holding back a negative attitude. But, her smile looks very natural and genuine. In addition to her facial expressions, her posture leaning forward states that she is interested in not intimidating.
- Is she portraying the image of a woman in Leadership? Yes
- Does her attire showcase her values, roles, and goals? No
- Could the corporate look be better? Yes, definitely
A good corporate headshot is very much essential in portraying the right image of the organization. The venue, the background, the attire, the body language, the posture, the makeup, and the hairdo play a vital role to click that perfect shot.
