How to Create Positive Personal Impact

I advise members of my career mentoring site that it’s important to create positive personal impact. Face to face conversations are a great place to create positive personal impact. Here are some tips for doing so.

  • Stand up straight when you meet someone.
  • Have a firm (not crushing) handshake.
  • Look the other people in the eye when you’re having a conversation.
  • Nod to show the other person that you’re listening to him or her.
  • As questions to clarify points you don’t understand.
  • Mirror the other person’s body language.
  • If possible, try to sit at a 90 degree angle instead of sitting directly across from the other person.
  • Smile. You’ll come across as warm and attractive.

These are just a few tips to help you create positive personal impact in conversation. Use them. They work.
