Let's be honest. There is nothing more important in this world to us than other people’s opinion. We do our best to make it better, we try to pretend to be someone else and get upset when the impression we make is bad.
Such unpopularity can lead to low self-esteem and even stress. We are social animals and society influences us more than you can imagine. Despite your personal feelings the impression you make clearly defines what career prospects you may have.
Today there are many personal coaches who offer you their unique programs to make you popular and successful at work and in your private life. The trouble is that most of these coaches are just fraudsters and their recommendations have nothing in common with reality. Today we are going to show you 7 scientifically backed tricks which will help you to make a good impression without much effort.
#1 Start talking in the elevator
If you are in the elevator with a colleague you are about to have a meeting with it is a great opportunity to start a conversation. There is no need to talk a lot. Just say 3-4 sentences to explain your opinion on the topic and this informal conversation will help you to adapt to different circumstances.
#2 Right type of handshake
You may not know this but we have 3 main types of handshakes. If you want to demonstrate domination over your opponent place your palm above theirs. When you shake the hand of your boss your palm should be open as this shows your subservience.
People who are equal use the 3rd type of handshake which requires placing the palms on an equal level. Using this type of handshake will help you to make a good impression during your first meeting.
#3 Add some personal things
During a business meeting your opponent may get bored due to all the monotonous stuff. To make the conversation more lively talk a little about something personal, for example, about your favorite basketball team.
#4 Temperature matters
You may be surprised but the temperature of your hands also matters. People associate warm hands with safety and comfort. Before going to a meeting try to warm your hands up with a cup of tea.
#5 Don't hide your drawbacks
Sometimes we are so insecure that hiding our own opinion becomes a usual thing. Don’t be afraid to be yourself and share your thoughts with others. You may be wrong but the correction of mistakes will give you an opportunity to make the connection even stronger.
#6 Work hard on your image
No matter how long you have prepared before this meeting and what unique professional skills you have, your appearance can spoil everything. When choosing the clothes you wear to a business meeting try not only to look serious but to show your personality as well.
#7 Practice before the meeting
Ask your friends to practice all the possible ways that the upcoming conversation could go with you. This exercise will help you figure out all the possible difficulties you could encounter and get rid of the nervousness you may feel.
