IN THE CORPORATE WORLD ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD...

In the corporate world, you are no doubt ultimately evaluated on your performance (leave aside nepotism, influence and the casting couch), but outward images do matter. Take this example.

You work for a conglomerate, with a generous employee base. At your level you are not interacting with your CEO—as yet. But say there is a conference, and you and the CEO are in attendance. Imagine the kind of impression that will register in his memory of you if you chatter on incessantly, fidget with your pen and straddle across you seat as if you are in your own living room? THE HIGHER-UPS NOTICE EVERYTHING and in this case the CEO in question has nothing more to judge you on except looks and body language! When it’s time for a raise, a promotion, an opportunity to jump the corporate rungs, the decision may rest on that one memory.

Here are some body language tips relevant for different work-related scenarios:
 
AT INTERVIEWS--IT’S FIRST IMPRESSION TIME!

No other situation is has such a high ‘first impression’ risk value! Exercise these tips:
• As you enter, a polite acknowledgment of gratitude, with a relaxed but upright posture, should set a positive tone for the interview.
• Be conscious of making proper eye with the interviewer, without staring, or getting shifty eyed.
• Practice a firm and dry handshake.
•  And no matter how the interview goes for you, leave as you came in.
• Be alert, sit erect, and maintain a steady dose of eye contact throughout.
