First impressions count, whether that be in an interview, a meeting with new people, or even your first day on the job. Luckily, there are a few emotionally intelligent tactics you can use to help you put your best foot forward and leave a great lasting impression.
Developing your emotional intelligence skills is an excellent approach to boosting your first impression game. But first, what is emotional intelligence? Emotional intelligence refers to your ability to recognise your emotions and the emotions of others and to use that information to guide thinking and behaviour. This in turn helps to enhance relationships, says Leadership Coach and psychologist Vanessa Fudge.
Here are four tactics to help you harness the powers of emotional intelligence and ensure you make a great first impression.
What not to do? Vanessa recommends avoiding the temptation to paraphrase or interrupt to finish their sentence. Also avoid thinking about what you’re going to say next while someone is talking – you might miss something important they’ve said, or even worse, it may make you seem disinterested.
Learning how to master each of these tactics will enhance your emotional intelligence and ensure that you are always leaving a great first impression.
