Mercedes Alfaro’s First Impression Guidelines

Remember the first time you met someone and went away with the feeling you didn’t want to see them again–yet you couldn’t pinpoint exactly why you felt that way?

And the reverse has happened for you. You felt sure your job interview went well. Your interviewer seemed highly positive, and commended you for your answers. However, someone else got the job offer.

Why do some first impressions fail, while others succeed? Are there steps we can take to greatly improve our chances for success in meeting people for the first time?

Fortunately, I know someone who has the answers–Mercedes Alfaro, who heads First Impression Management, based in Atlanta, Georgia. Since 2002, she has helped individuals and corporations sharpen their attitudes and actions, so they will make a strongly positive first impression.

Mercedes’ client list includes Abbott Laboratories, Hyatt Hotels, Motorola, UPS, and AT&T. She has been quoted by the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today, and other leading publications.

By listening to my interview with this highly energetic leader–an interview recorded in “The Communication Corner,” WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau”–you will learn guidelines for the following topics:

–How quickly we form first impressions, and how permanent they are
–Impact of nonverbal behavior
–Whether or not humor is safe in an initial meeting
–The problem with invading someone’s “personal space”
–The power of good posture
–Adjusting your communication style for different cultures
–Smile your way to a grand first impression
–When your first impression is by telephone
–Removing physical barriers, such as desks
–Surefire ways to catch and remember names
