Most people applying for jobs and university places would benefit from a coaching session focused on improving the impression they make. Whilst each company and interviewer will have their own idea of what their ideal candidate looks like (depending on the culture of the organisation), there are some powerful techniques that you can learn and use that will help you maximise your personal impact.
You do not need to be aware of every movement you make as you talk but normally there will be a couple of areas one-to-one coaching will reveal which when tweaked make a huge difference.
This is why it is so useful to video record some of the coaching session and have the opportunity to review the techniques.
Coaching: The silent language
|Congruency||Does your body language endorse or emphasise what you’re saying.|
|Instant impact||The first impression you give is transmitted during the first four seconds|
|Active listening||How to show active listening signals|
|Arriving & leaving||Both can be tricky but leaving the room at the end of an interview takes more planning|
|Silent language to build rapport||How to look confident,|
How to display authority
How to look keen
How to look approachable
How to look knowledgeable
|Looks to avoid||Small unintended signals make you appear aggressive or arrogant|
|Read the interviewer||How to link into to the interviewer’s communication style to create a stronger rapport|
