- Smile more. It costs you nothing and buys you so much!
- Have a firm hand shake. A wimpy hand shake is worse than no hand shake.
- Give good eye contact. That communicates sincerity, honesty, and caring.
- Dress appropriately. Believe it or not, people will form opinions of you based on how you look, and if it is inappropriate, they will tend to discount what you say and give it less credence.
Remember: “Perception equals reality,” and people will jump to conclusions about you based on how you communicate. It will pay big dividends if you will become intentional about improving your communication skills.
2 Corinthians 8:21: For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.
