Patti Wood MA www.PattiWood.net
You’re meeting a client or date for the first time, interviewing for a job, greeting a prospect, sitting next to someone new in a meeting, watching an employee come through the door at the beginning of the day, or sit down next to a stranger in a social setting. In each of these situations, you are forming a first impression that determines how you’ll interact with that person. And they are forming and impression of you. Whether stranger or friend, first impressions determine how people will evaluate us and how you will interact with them. When meeting someone for the first time social first impressions are made in seconds. Most hiring decisions are made in the first four minutes of a job interview and research shows that a bad first impression is the reason approximately eight out of 10 candidates don't get the job. Would you like to learn the body language cues to form a great first impression and feel calm and confident in your initial interactions? In this program will share body language secrets such as how to quickly create a strong connection, reduce your stress and control your breath and voice so you sound confident, and what to do at the end of a conversation, business interaction or job interview so you leave a good impression.
In this high energy, interactive program, you’ll learn what effects your first impression how to comfortable meet and greet with others in social and business interactions.
We will break down the steps people go through in those first few minutes. You’ll learn the four steps to a powerful handshake and how to deal with bone crushers and wimps. You will understand gender-based differences in handshakes and greeting and how your ability to establish rapport is effected by space, eye contact, and smiles.
If you choose you will be taped and receive coaching and feedback and a mini DVD of your interaction. You’ll understand gender-based differences in handshakes and greeting and how your ability to establish rapport is effected by space, eye contact, and smiles.
