Self-presentation lessons: how to present yourself profitably and beautifully

Singer Mark Orlov – about 5 key points that you need to know about if you wanted to win people over and lead them with you in front of WomanHit.ru.

The skill of self-presentation is one of the most important for anyone who claims to be successful. This applies not only to your career, but also to your personal and social life. Here are 5 key points that will help win over people and lead them with you.

1. Smile

A sincere smile is one of the most attractive features of a person. It can literally light up the space around you, creating a positive atmosphere and making people feel at ease and at ease in your presence. Even in this age of masks, a smile that reaches the eyes is a key part of the first impression and conveys warmth, kindness, and empathy. Smiling with your eyes as well as with your mouth can help you come across as sincere and trustworthy. To give the other person a smile, think of something that fills you with joy.

2. Eye contact

Establishing eye contact the first time you meet a person or even an audience is key. Wandering eyes are often perceived as unfriendly and give the impression that you are trying to find someone more interesting to talk to. Looking at the floor can make you seem insecure, and moving your gaze up and down the other person’s body can seem evaluative.

Balance is key when it comes to eye contact, and you should avoid staring fixedly at the other person. Use the “triangle technique” when you draw an imaginary inverted triangle around the eyes and mouth of the interlocutor. During a conversation, you can look from one point of the triangle to another every 5-10 seconds. This will make you look interested and involved in the topic under discussion.

3. Appearance

It may seem unfair, but the reality is that we all judge each other by their appearance. Regardless of your size, figure, or age, taking care of your appearance and wearing appropriate clothing will make for a good first impression.

Choosing clothes is a powerful communication tool when meeting new people for the first time. The good news is that even small changes can increase your chances of making a positive impression. These include matching your outfit to the occasion, using colors that suit you, and choosing your accessories carefully.

Personal care and hygiene also play an important role in our overall appearance, so don’t forget to pay attention to your teeth, hair, hands and nails.

4. Body language

Silence can speak volumes. We communicate with more than just words. Our facial expressions, gestures and postures also convey different signals when communicating with other people. Studies show that up to 60-70% of the information of human communication is formed by non-verbal signals. Despite this, many people do not think about their body language and are unaware that they are sending mixed or negative signals.

Paying attention to your body language will help you adjust it and make a great first impression. Whenever you meet someone new, keep this in mind:

– Avoid blocking the space in front of you by crossing your arms or placing your bag on your lap.

– Minimize fussy movements such as biting your nails, drumming with your fingers, or playing with your hair.

– Watch your posture, do not slouch or lean back in your chair.

– Show that you are listening by nodding your head and leaning forward slightly.

5. Punctuality

Punctuality indicates respect and courtesy towards other people. When you’re late for a date, business meeting, or family gathering, it lets others know that your time is more important than theirs.

We all know at least one person who can never be on time. Perhaps you yourself struggle with chronic tardiness. Taking steps to improve your time management will bring huge benefits to your personal and professional life.
