First Impression Skills

5 ways You make a First Impression:

  1. In person: face to face
  2. By phone: making a call and receiving a call
  3. Social Media: email, text, Face Book, twitter, you tube: REMEMBER:  A 1st Impression made via Social Media is there forever! Think about what you want to say or do before you write something and put it on Social Media.
  4. Written: notes, letters, resumes. Pay attention to spelling, punctuation and grammar! Use spell check & grammar check. Proof read what you write OUT LOUD!
  5. By reputation: what people think and say about you

3 stages of making a First Impression:

  1. 1st Few Seconds
  2. 1st Few Minutes
  3. Lingering stage: days, weeks & months following the first two stages.

What you do speaks so loudly, I cannot hear what you’re saying

You can’t talk yourself out of problems you behave yourself into!
