First impressions matter: Management Tips

Let’s be clear. First impressions are unfair representations of people. When you see someone and make a snap judgment—which we all do—your judgment is based on worthless data. Likewise, when someone does that to you, they’re not getting to know the real you.

But first impressions matter. Important decisions—such as whether to hire you, promote you, or introduce you to potential clients—will be made based on the first impression you make.

The good news is that we can help! You can learn how to nail your first impressions by watching the first Management Tips video this week.

In the second tip, we delve into body language. Your nonverbal cues often say more than your words, but you can use this to your advantage if you know how.

Watch this week’s Management Tips to become a stronger communicator and form more productive relationships.
