Everyone wants to leave a positive impression on people they meet and this is when etiquettes come into play. Etiquettes are norms which a person follows to make their interaction with people likeable. So, here are few tips on making your interactions even more positive by learning and following the right etiquettes.

Body Language

When you meet a person for the first time, your body language leaves a lasting impact in their mind about your personality. So, carrying yourself in a pleasing way is very essential. Watch out for the way you sit and stand before them and always wear a smile on your face.

Greeting plays a significant role in how people perceive you as a person. Wishing someone a good day gives them a positive feeling about you.

Offering a Seat

Your meeting with a person may last long or end on a short note. It is important to make a good impression right at the beginning. This could be done by offering a seat first after having greeted him/her.

Offering a Glass of Water

If a person visits your home or office, it is important that you offer them a glass of water. If the person has visited your place for the first time, it is natural for them to feel hesitant to ask for water. So, it is a part of good etiquettes to make them feel comfortable.

No Undivided Attention

Attending to other tasks while interacting with someone can be treated as highly insulting. Multi-tasking could be fine sometimes but, try to avoid it while in a discussion.

Don’t Jump Conversations

While you are trying to resolve an issue with someone, make sure that that you do not quit doing so in the middle i.e. until you have come to a favourable conclusion. Take follow-ups till the problem is completely resolved.

Do not Lose Temper

When you are in an argument, understand that the other person also deserves the same amount of explanations as you do. Don’t just end the issue by simply saying `no’. You must support your statement with an explanation.

When you are interacting with a person, your listening skills are being tested. Listening to what the other person has to say is very important. Pay heed to them without any interruptions.
