“Life is all about balance.You don’t always need to be getting stuff done.Sometimes it’s just your moves that reflect.”
1. Eye Contact.
I think good eye contact is one of the most powerful body language tools in
existence. Eyes have been described as the windows to the soul, so that may make them the best way to communicate with another person.But don’t overdo it.When eye contact goes from gazing to staring, it makes people uncomfortable and actually activates their sympathetic nervous system. According to Michael Ellsberg, author of The Power of Eye Contact: Your Secret for Success in Business, Love, and Life, “In order for eye contact to feel good, one person cannot impose his visual will on another; it is a shared experience.
2.Dress for confidence.
Clothes do make a difference in how we perceive ourselves, and how others perceive us. Dressing confidently is more than wearing the trendiest fashion. It’s about feeling good, looking poised and being self-assured in all situations.
It’s also about sending the right message to the people you are with. You can boost your confidence about yourself and your attire when you dress appropriately for the occasion, know the audience, reflect your personal style, and understand the impact of color.
3.Posture. You should practice good posture while sitting or standing that creates the least amount of strain on supporting muscles and ligaments. When you sit, your back should be straight, your rear should be against the back of the chair, your feet should be flat on the floor, and you should bend your knees at a right angle.
Like it or not, in a negotiation setting your facial expressions will be under that same microscope, so try to make sure that they enhance the positive verbal cues that you’re giving. Take care not to frown or wrinkle your forehead worryingly and take the opportunity to smile and nod in agreement whenever possible. Keep your chin up, evoking positivity, and your eyes level. Remember, the other person will be looking to see that your physical gestures mirror your words—keep them both open and positive.
One of the biggest signs of attraction is a shared smile. It has to be a genuine smile and it has to be held for just the right amount of time. A quick smile can seem insincere, while a smile that lasts too long can just look scary! The shared, secret smile, though, really does say it all.
