5 Body Language Secrets That Will Help You Gain People's Trust

5 Body Language Secrets That Will Help You Gain People's Trust | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Whether it's in the business world or in personal relations, there is one thing that we all need to get along and be successful: trust. We all strive to have people trust us, but the truth is that trust is often hard to build. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to instantly appear more trustworthy. Here are five body language secrets to help you earn people's trust.

 

1. The eyes have it.

 

The first thing you want to remember when building trust is to keep eye contact. Eye contact is one of those things we subconsciously take note of every time we meet a person. Have you ever tried to have a conversation with a person who was constantly shuffling around and looking in different directions? Sporadic eye contact communicates a lack of interest, distraction, and even dishonesty. Whenever you're speaking, be sure to keep good, steady eye contact.

Do Optimists Lead Better Quality Lives?

Do Optimists Lead Better Quality Lives? | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
If you’ve read any or many of the self-help motivational type books, you’ll typically find a section, chapter or even the entire book devoted to the importance of being optimistic rather than pessimistic about your future.
However, rather than relying on sweeping generalizations and non-evidence-based self-help advice, let’s take a look at what science reveals about optimism (and pessimism) and the impact on our wellbeing in our professional and personal life. (A newly released book by Shawn Murphy, The Optimistic Workplace, is one to add to your reading list, as it is well supported by the latest research with examples from large and small companies on the impact of an optimistic workplace).
