We don't care how good you are unless you’re nice

First impressions count. Research by Associate Professor Amy Cuddy, and her pals from Harvard Business School, tells us that people judge us based on our warmth before our competency. This means that if your first impression is not warm or likeable then you have a much harder task gaining people's trust in your competence than if they warmed to you right off the bat.Case in point:Recently I accompanied my friend in her search for a wedding dress. We visited a few shops and most shop attendants…See More

Use this simple trick to avoid an argument

Disagreements often occur at a concrete level of communication. People get stuck on the details which highlight the differences in their thinking and this can push them further apart and into their own corners. When aiming for agreement you need to bring the conversation up to a conceptual level and out of the detail. The more abstract you can make your communication the easier the concept is to agree with. For example if we were choosing a new colour for our office chairs and you wanted blue…See More

Drop the ‘but’ to double your influence

Often when speak we don’t realise how the simplest word choice can have a major impact on our listener’s response and sometimes it’s contrary to the outcome we want. The word ‘but’ is a great example of this. According to the dictionary the word ‘but’ is ‘used to introduce a phrase or clause contrasting what has already been mentioned’. So if I said to you, “I like this design but I think it needs to have more red,” what you will hear is ‘she doesn't like this design and wants it to be…See More

What your feet tell us about your feelings

Can I join your conversation? Is this presentation engaging? The real answer to these questions can be found in the position of the feet. This sounds a bit weird I know, but paying attention to the position of people’s feet gives us a lot of information about their internal feelings. Because feet are the furthest thing from the centre of the body, they are often more outside our conscious awareness and therefore less likely to be actively ‘controlled’ or managed to convey a certain message. For…See More

But that’s not what I meant!!

Who cares! Quite frankly it doesn't matter what you meant, it only matters what the other person heard. The quicker we come to grips with this the happier we will all be. I know this can be tough. I recently wrote a white paper and sent it around to my trusted colleagues for feedback. I got some very clear feedback around a set of questions I had included. With each response I wanted to say, “No, no that’s not what I meant. You’ve misunderstood the message,” and “No, that's not what I meant.…See More

Mood makers and mood takers

Watch my short video here and continue reading below...Our emotional states are contagious. How you feel in any given moment leaks out into the atmosphere and infects other people. So to speak. We have cells in our bodies called mirror neurons. They allow us to tap into the feelings, thoughts and intentions of others just by observing them. They are responsible for what neuroscientists and sociologists call ‘emotional contagion’.…See More
