The most important indication of self-confidence is to maintain eye contact while listening and, even more importantly, while speaking.
Stand and sit up straight in open positions. For example, with arms by your side, not folded, or hands lightly crossed. Position feet with one more forward than the other.
Rather than making yourself look small by holding your hands together and folding your feet around each other, give the illusion that your body is taking up a lot of space, displaying self-assurance.
How you shake someone’s hand shapes the way they feel about you. So, practice with friends to get a good balance – ensuring it’s firm but not too aggressive and never limp.
Not only can smiling release feel good endorphins relaxing you, but it also sets everyone else at ease and projects a positive ‘can do’ approach.
As tempting as they are, especially when you’re nervous, try not to tap your pen, shuffle paper or tap your feet. It’s OK to be animated and talk with your hands but looking in control means you are.
