Review Your Body Language
“Talk less, smile more.” Aaron Burr sang this line in the smash musical Hamilton, and it may just be the key to making people like you! We’ve already established the importance of listening vs. talking, and as cliche as it may be… a smile never hurt anyone. A genuine smile – not the forced, awkward one you give coworkers in the hallway – creates a quick connection and releases a small endorphin in your brain promoting a feeling of comfort and happiness. Let somebody smile back at you and get that same rush! Also review body language like the way you stand or if you’re on your phone at inappropriate times. It could be sending the wrong message!
