  • Do the entries reflect your area of expertise?
  • Is your web site or blog featured?
  • Do the entries communicate a consistent brand image?

 

4. Four steps to a naturally made up face:

  • Fill in your eyebrows & define your eyes with eyeliner and mascara
  • Add just enough blush so you don’t look pale
  • Finish the look with a little lip color or gloss

 

5. Three C’s of branding:

  • Consistency – Be consistent in communicating who you are 
  • Constancy – Be ever present to the people who need to know about you

 

6. Personal branding:

  • Visibility is making sure your target audience sees you
  • Credibility is demonstrating your unique promise of value in everything you do

 

7. Pay attention to your bag:

  • You don’t want your personal things jutting out of your purse or briefcase
  • Keep your bag clean on the inside, especially if it doesn’t have a zipper, which allows others to catch a glimpse inside

 

8. Don’t over-accessorize:

  • Accessories are meant to complement your outfit, not overpower it

 

9. Your jewelry shouldn’t make noise:

  • It’s really distracting when someone’s dangly bangles make noises when they move their arms

 

10. Pay attention to your watch:

  • The most noticed accessory on both men and women is the watch

 

11. Wear rich colors to portray authority:

  • Darker colors usually convey a stronger impression than lighter ones
  • If you’re giving a presentation, make sure the color you’re wearing doesn’t blend in with the background behind you

 

12. Avoid neon colors and overly flashy clothes:

  • Both men and women have to be cautious with bright colors
  • Clothes that are too flashy can be distracting and are visual equivalent of shouting

 

13. Dressing for success:

  • It includes more than just choosing the right outfit
  • To complete your professional look you must also consider accessories and personal grooming
  • You should always dress to impress clients, investors and customers, because a winning sales pitch is not enough to seal the deal

17. Remember, less is more when it comes to fragrance:

  • Fragrance is a personal preference, find the one that works best for you
  • Just remember not to bathe in it
  • Never smell like smoke, if you smoke in a car, your clothing will always pick up the odour

 

18. Match your belt to your shoes:

  • If you are wearing black shoes, you don’t wear a brown belt

 

19. Take wide steps:

  • Wide steps make you seem purposeful and suggest a personal composure, which denotes confidence in a man

 

20. Avoid your pockets:

  • We put our hands in our pockets when we’re uncomfortable or unsure of ourselves
  • Instinctually we tend to hide our hands when we’re nervous
  • Keeping your hands out in the open indicates confidence and shows people you have nothing to hide

 

21. Stand up straight with your shoulders back:

  • Standing up straight is perhaps the most important mean of communicating confidence
  • Concentrate on pushing your shoulders back slightly while standing and walking

 

22. Firm handshakes:

  • Grip the other person’s hand firmly and confidently
  • Placing your free hand on the other person’s elbow adds warmth and enthusiasm to the handshake
  • Don’t try to crush the other person’s hand
  • Don’t hold on too long

 

23. Body language while socializing:

  • Don’t cross your arms while socializing
  • Crossing your arms is a protective posture
  • We do it when we’re cold, nervous or on guard
  • It looks intimidating
  • Your job is to look likeable, open and confident
  • So relax a little and keep your arms uncrossed

 

24. Use contact to show appreciation:

  • The pat on the back is a lost art
  • Don’t be afraid to pat a buddy or a colleague on the back
  • It’s a sign of affection and respect

 

25. Communication at work:

  • Be very careful about the way you communicate at work
  • Even in our modern world, face-to-face communication can work wonders for morale
  • If you like your employees’ work; let them know
  • You can’t be professional if you’re angry at your employees
  • Don’t Just Hear – Listen

 

26. Make eye contact:

  • Look into the eyes of the person with whom you are conversing, for more successful interaction
  • Eye contact conveys interest and encourages your partner to be interested in you as well

 

27. Don’t send mixed messages:

  • Make your words, gestures, facial expressions and tone match the message
  • Disciplining someone while smiling sends a mixed message and is therefore ineffective
  • If you have to deliver a negative message, make your words, facial expressions & tone match the message

 

28. Be aware of what your body is saying:

  • Body language can say so much more than a mouthful of words
  • Often, communication can be stopped before it starts by body language that tells people you don’t want to talk
  • Appropriate posture and an approachable stance can make even difficult conversations flow more smoothly

 

29. Enunciate your words:

  • Speak clearly and don’t mumble
  • If people are always asking you to repeat yourself, try to do a better job of articulating yourself in a better manner

 

30. Pronounce your words correctly:

  • People will judge your competency through your vocabulary & pronunciation
  • If you aren’t sure of how to say a word, don’t use it

 

31. Use the right words:

  • If you’re not sure of the meaning of a word, don’t use it
  • Grab a dictionary and start a daily habit of learning one new word per day
  • Use it sometime in your conversation during the day

 

32. Slow your speech down:

  • People will perceive you as nervous and unsure of yourself if you talk fast
  • However, be careful not to slow down to the point where people begin to finish your sentences, just to help you finish

 

33. Animate your voice:

  • Avoid a monotone and use dynamics
  • Your pitch should raise and lower periodically
  • Radio DJ’s are usually a good example of this

 

34. Use appropriate volume:

  • Use a volume that is appropriate for the setting
  • Speak more softly when you are alone and close
  • Speak louder when you are speaking to larger groups or across larger spaces

 

35. Public speaking:

  • Try to speak fluently and make sure that people can hear you when you speak
  • Use proper grammar
  • Do not interrupt or talk over the other person
  • Be careful with humor
  • If you keep giggling and joking, your communication will not be taken seriously

 

36. Be on time:

  • Avoid being late for an appointment
  • Being on time shows your respect for the other person & occasion

 

37. People’s names:

  • Everyone has a name
  • Most people appreciate your effort to remember & use their names during communication

 

38. Cell phones:

  • Use your cell phone sparingly in public
  • No one else wants to listen to a private conversation

 

39. Email:

  • Think before you hit “send”
  • Most electronic mails can never be taken back

 

40. Social media:

  • Facebook, Twitter, and other social medias are a part of most people’s lives
  • Remember that not only can your friends see what you post, others can repost, share or re-tweet anything you put out there

 

41. Acknowledge others:

  • Congratulate when someone does an appreciable job
  • Do this in meetings or in front of the boss to show that you are a team player
