Title: Reading Body Language


1
Reading Body Language
  • Non verbal communication, or body language

2
First Impressions
  • A picture is worth a thousand words.
  • The picture you create will have great
    influence. Most impressions are formed within
    the first 7 seconds of meeting someone. Early
    judgment is based strictly on appearance.
    Furthermore, studies reveal that employers
    consistently ask the question, does the
    individual look right for the job?
