Open up a brand new web page or tab and go to YouTube. Then click on the Bloomberg and CNBC channels. These two media outlets are all about finances, business and trade. Many people of all kinds in all industries come onto the shows, and give you their opinion about what is going on in their professional world. For one, don’t listen to what they say just watch how they carry themselves. You know when you’re watching a business leader just by how they act. Subconsciously, they are giving off signals to our own subconsciousness and we immediately begin to trust them more and really take on board what they’re saying. If you are someone who owns a small business or perhaps just wants to look for a new career, then following their example is something you must consider.
Look the part
Yes, yes, these days the young and budding entrepreneurs think that wearing ‘old fashioned’ clothes is a bore but wearing hoodies and joggers is the new standard. Wrong, for the young and brash wearing clothes you’d probably wake up to go to work is not a big problem, but for someone who wants to be respected automatically, you have to wear a suit. However, it’s not just any old suit you should take off the shelf, a custom suit designed around your body is what’s needed. Take a look at these mens custom suits, and see how the old traditions and the new styles are merging together. The professional tailors will work with you on a one-on-one basis. You give their your trust, and they will take your measurements. They’ll advise you on what kinds of features your suit can have for the vision you’re going for. A tailored suit is able to be spotted from a mile off among CEOs and other c-suite ranks; as well as the media and investors.
A droopy posture
Society really is in such a funny and strange era. Millions upon millions of people are constantly looking down, their necks bent forward, their shoulders caving inward. White collar jobs have increased substantially over the past two decades, so we all have a similar posture. It’s kind of concave almost as if there’s a gravity vortex in the middle of our chest. A droopy posture such as this, does not give people confidence in someone. It’s kind of weak and small. The simple fact of the matter is, for a business leader or professional looking to show confidence in their actions, broad shoulders, a straight back, a slightly puffed chest and proper width between the toes of your feet must be donned.
Confidence in conversation
Showing passion in your voice can constitute a constant shifting of tone and pitch. However, the art of holding a conversation is also a mark of a confident business leader. Conversation etiquette is something we have almost forgotten in society but in professional circles it is anything but. Take the time to listen to the other party, try not to interrupt and making engaging eye contact.
Business leaders carry themselves in a different way to normal people. They must dress smartly, behave courteously and look bold and strong to command confidence in any room they walk into.
