To be successful in life both career-wise and as a person, communication skill is one of the most important factors to get into account. good communication skill includes conveying your message clearly and strongly at the right time, in front of right person/people, with the right tone. communication skill also includes good listening. you cannot proceed conversation further without listening to others as it is a two-way process. the major factor which distinguishes a great communicator from not so good one is the great level of confidence and proper and appropriate body language.
Body language is the non-verbal form of communication used to express our true feelings without uttering a word. it is a very important factor to make a strong first impression. it is also used to show confidence. its can also add the strength to the verbal message. some basic body language techniques to make a strong confident first impression:
• have an open posture
• maintain eye contact
• avoid face touch
• use firm handshake
• use mirroring
• relax your body
Most importantly, don’t mess it up. first, practice all body languages before using in public, or there may be negative consequences.
