Ways To Make A Good Impression

Written by

For family:

Greet people as if you haven’t seen them in two weeks.  No more coming home from work and walking into a room as if no one is there.

It doesn’t matter if they’re on their mobile devices.  Make sure you’re not.  Walk in, and greet them with the most sincere and heartfelt hello – the kind you can resurrect from times when you’ve been away from loved ones for an extended period of time.

For someone you’re meeting for the first time:

Grasp their hand, look into their eyes and flash the biggest smile you are capable of producing.  The kind that says, “I just won the lottery” or “I just got a promotion” or “I won the sales trip to Hawaii”.

No one – absolutely no one – can resist a big smile and warm person-centered interest.

Keep the good vibes going by asking this new acquaintance the first question about them not you.

The secret is people like us more when we warm them up with a smile and get them talking to us.
