First impressions count. In minutes, a person forms an opinion about you based on your appearance, body language, demeanor, mannerisms.
Three ideas to increase your communication success with a first impression include:
- Make eye contact and remain focused on their face until you know the colour of their eyes.
- Build rapport by using their name. Be careful not to overuse this practice.
- Use the headline technique; keep your sentences short. You will be asked to elaborate if they are interested in more detail.
