Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80% of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the words. – Deborah Bull
AM continues to present A-Z tips on body language.
Now we are at: M and N
M – Mirroring
It is also important to pay attention to the posture of your interviewer. Sometimes you can establish rapport by adopting the same posture as the other person. This is called mirroring. If they have adopted a more formal posture do the same until you see that the interviewer has relaxed and become less formal.
N – Nod at appropriate times
Nod once in a while to signal that you are listening. Too much nodding can be a distraction, so don’t overdo it.
