Social skills are the great equalizer and transcend social class, economic status, academic achievement and race.
First impressions speak volumes. Whether we do it consciously or not, we all make judgments about people based upon appearance, how they speak and present themselves. How you dress and accessorize speaks volumes about you. Don't kid yourself - people still judge you by your clothes! It is part of that critical first impression.
What does it mean to be a
social success? It means you are able to achieve a
favorable or desired outcome in your interactions
with others. Simply put, it means you are a success
in both your personal and professional life.
And what does it take be
a social success? It takes a certain savoir-faire
combined with a unique sense of style and a desire
to succeed. First impressions are powerful. We can't
escape the fact that image and appearance are
important when meeting someone for the first time.
In fact, 93% of a first impression is nonverbal.
Appearance counts for 55% of the impression we make.
The first impression is made in only seconds, and
yet it may follow you indefinitely. Beauty
is nice, but confidence trumps. If you are poised
and confident, you will come across more positively
than if you are uncomfortable with yourself or your
attitude you project, both verbally and
non-verbally, is the next most important factor in a
first impression; it counts for 38%. Attitude begins
on the inside and shows on the outside. If you have
a positive attitude about yourself and others, it
will be evident in the way you carry yourself and
the tone of your voice. Did you know your abilities
may be judged by a three- second handshake? A firm
handshake conveys confidence, assurance, interest
And lastly, research
shows that what you actually say is the least
important factor in a first impression. Only 7% of
the impression you make. A good first impression
gets you in the door , but style without substance
will only take you so far. In our social success
makeovers, we explore all
of the essentials necessary to be successful in your
interactions with other people.

Good manners equals good business, which equates to competence, while poor manners exudes incompetence. Etiquette alone will not seal the deal if you don't know your business, but it will give you that competitive edge over others, allowing you to present yourself with commanding confidence. The impression you make influences whether you get the contract or the salary increase you desire. By building your professional reputation as someone thoroughly equipped to represent your company in any situation is an investment in knowledge that gets you the business, and that means considerable increased corporate profitability.
