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

5 Body Language Secrets That Will Help You Gain People's Trust | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | 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.

How Do Trustworthy Leaders Behave?

How Do Trustworthy Leaders Behave? | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

It can be easy to trust too quickly, especially when a leader is affable, has an impressive résumé, and tells you what you want to hear. In 30 years of surveying senior executives, social psychologist Roderick Kramer has found that 8 out of 10 report being burned at least once because they trusted too much or put their faith in the wrong person at some point in their careers.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

It’s important for an organization to build trust among workers for several reasons. Employees who know they can trust their leaders are happy workers who believe in what they are doing.

4 Gestures That Turn People Off

4 Gestures That Turn People Off | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

When you deliver a presentation, your body language is important for one over-riding reason: it creates an instant visual first impression that answers a big question for your audience: "Can I trust this person?"


Until now, science has not been able to isolate the specific physical cues that could cause us to not be trusted. But thanks to Dr. David DeSteno, a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, we now know what gestures can undermine the perception of our trustworthiness.


Dr. DeSteno devised a study in which participants played a cooperative economic game. Half played face-to-face, and half played over the internet. And those who played face-to-face were videotaped from three camera angles.

Small movements that you make--movements you probably aren't aware of could be the key to whether others trust you... or not.

How Finding A Business Partner Is Awfully Similar To Finding A Spouse

How Finding A Business Partner Is Awfully Similar To Finding A Spouse | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Just like marriage, it takes time to find the right business partner.

The terms “work husband/wife” are frequently used because marriage and business partnerships are extremely relatable. Maintaining those relationships involves ongoing attention, change, and reflection over time.

Here are a few top tips to consider before tying the business knot:

Non-negotiables

Whether it is experience in a specific field, a certain degree or acquired skill set, a flexible schedule, or an unshakeable work ethic, these attributes cannot be compromised. Once this parameter is outlined it is easier to narrow down your search.

What to Do When Your Managers Don't Trust Each Other

What to Do When Your Managers Don't Trust Each Other | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

For smooth execution, people on your team--from upper management to those who toil on the most mundane tasks--need to have confidence in one another. Without trust, people at best second guess those they deal with. At worst, they won't make necessary efforts because, why bother? Other people will only screw things up.


Such is the stuff of office intrigue and backbiting. But it can get worse when the people who aren't inspiring trust are the people on your management team. News flash: That's the situation in many companies, according to a new survey of "200 C-suite executives, senior leaders, and managers" conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit on behalf of management consulting firm BTS. And, sadly, you, too, may distrust many of the managers working for you.

How To Use Your Intuition To Get Ahead

How To Use Your Intuition To Get Ahead | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

“Intuition is real; it comes from memory,” he says. “The brain is always searching for things you’ve known or experienced that are similar to what you’re experiencing now. When it identifies one, it gives you that feeling of intuition or deja vu.”


But the memory could come from anywhere, including a past experience, a friend’s past experience, or even the plot line from a movie, says Duggan. “If you think the feeling through, you might be able to identify where it’s coming from,” he says. “If it’s coming from a science fiction movie you saw when you were 13, it might be a bad idea to listen to it.”

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

That "gut feeling" is real, researchers say--but do you know the difference between basic, expert, and strategic intuition?

7 Reasons Employees Don't Trust Their Leaders

7 Reasons Employees Don't Trust Their Leaders | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

As the world mourns the loss of Nelson Mandela and commemorates his greatness as a leader, we would do well to remember that one of the  many hallmarks of his leadership was trust.  The greatest leaders in the world gravitated toward Mr. Mandela because he was genuinely trustworthy and his purpose was to support peace, prosperity and unity not only in South Africa – but throughout the world. Mandela was able to lead people in ways that many find impossible to do. As he famously said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”


Unfortunately, trust is in rare supply these days.  People are having trouble trusting each other, according to an AP-GfK poll conducted in November 2013, which found that Americans are suspicious of each other in their everyday encounters.
