It only takes about three seconds for someone to evaluate you when they meet you for the first time. These first impressions are very difficult, and sometimes nearly impossible, to change. This means that these first impressions are vital for setting the tone of the relationship in the future. Every new encounter is a new opportunity to present yourself properly. Read on to discover three ways to ensure that you are making the right impression.
1. Be On Time
Nothing communicates “I don’t care” more than being late. A good philosophy to follow is this: To be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late, and to be late is unacceptable. It is best to plan ahead for the problems that can arise from traveling, like making sure to schedule your flight early or to use a trustworthy car service to get you where you need to go. Remember that it is always better to arrive early than it is to arrive late. One of the first things you can be judged on is your timing to the encounter, which is why you must be prepared to arrive early.
2. Consider How You Want to Be Presented
When you are preparing to make a stellar first impression, consider how you want to be presented. Ask yourself the following questions: what kind of interaction do I want to have? How should I dress? What kinds of topics should I introduce into the conversation? Considering these types of things before you arrive at your meeting will help you maintain a constant, reliable presence throughout the interaction; you’ll have more control and a better chance at establishing yourself in a positive light. Remember: first impressions last, so planning how you will represent yourself will affect the relationship you are establishing for a long time.
3. Stop Guessing, Start Knowing
Do your research! Regardless if this first meeting is with a major company for an interview, an initial meet up with a new employee, time with a diplomat, or your first time meeting the future in-laws, you should be prepared for it. You should know your audience before you go to the meeting. Having prior knowledge about the person or people you are going to meet for the first time will help the conversations to go smoothly and will show that you care. Practice questions, consider conversations, and focus on providing yourself with the right tools to create the proper first impression. Doing your research will not only help you represent yourself better, but it will also help you determine how you need to interact with the people you are going to meet!
Remember that you shouldn’t get too nervous about making the right impression; take these tips into consideration, and head into your meeting with confidence and peace of mind. Making the right first impression is important, but it should never interfere with you being yourself. Only you will determine how the relationship develops on your end, but you can’t always guarantee how the other party will be. Lastly, remember to focus on the positives, and be confident in yourself.
