Making a great first impression is imperative to becoming an influential leader. If you are in sales or business, the way you are perceived by someone will largely determine your level of credibility.
The rule is that everything counts. Everything you do or don’t do either adds to or takes away from your credibility and your capability to influence someone.
A First Impression Says Everything
You’ve heard it said that you never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
The fact is that when you first meet a person, they make a judgment about you in approximately 4 seconds. Studies show that the decision of whether or not to hire a person is made within 30 seconds of the first meeting.
Make a Personal Statement
Everything that contributes to the way you look on the outside is important. While you cannot control your physical features, you have total control over your dress and grooming.
Your clothes are responsible for 95% of the first impression that you make on someone. Your grooming, hair style and accessories, such as purse, briefcase, watch, tie, rings, pens and other elements, all make a statement that will or will not help to put you in a position to influence someone.
Stand Out from the Crowd
Everyone you meet evaluates your character and credibility based on the way you present yourself. The first impression you make is essential to your influence as a leader.
If you want to get hired, close a sale or earn a promotion, make an impressive personal statement!
Resolve to look like a powerful, influential person in all your business activities.
Read a book on proper dress, take a seminar or even hire an image consultant. Small changes in your appearance can change your life.
