7 CONFIDENCE TRICKS
DRESS FOR YOUR EVENT
Research your audience, your clients, your customers and make sure that your clothing style is appropriate. Create your own style of course and check if it's in keeping with those around you. Always keen a smart jacket in reserve, just in case.
If you look like you care about your own appearance it will send the signal that you will care about your customers, clients or colleagues too. Keep a comb or brush close at hand.
People want to work with people who make them feel comfortable, relaxed and valued. When you stay positive it sends a confident, empowering signal to everyone that they will be appreciated and listened to.
Think "I'm looking forward to finding our more about your business" rather than "I don't know anything about you"
Fail to prepare ... prepare to fail. We all have time to grab a coffee, so we all have time to prepare for a meeting, presentation, discussion or pitch. Make sure you've got your strong opening and closing line and everything in between will fall into place.
We smile at friends, at things we enjoy, when we're happy, so why not do it more?
Deep breaths from the diaphragm will give you the oxygen you need to relax and calm your nerves. Deep breathing shows confidence and control, helps reduce voice fluctuations and gives you natural volume when you speak.
Focus on your positives, understand your personality traits and see yourself as others may see you. Easier said than done? Confidence coaching can help you and transform your life.
