Quiet Confidence – adapted from Why Not You? 28 Days to Authenticate Confidence

Without even saying a word, you can communicate self-assurance. Practice these five behaviors, and you’ll appear- and feel- more secure

*Be still. Maintaining a sense of calm even when turmoil surrounds you conveys confidence. Avoid fidgeting and distracting movement

*Sustain eye contact. Looking someone in the eye for three to five seconds at a time says, “ I’m listening. You’re important. I’ve nothing to hide.”

  • Maintain Good Posture. Rolling your shoulders back and lifting your head will automatically make you feel and look more confident

  • Keep you head straight. Cocking your head to the side when talking conveys a message of acquiesce? Or surrender.

  • OPEN YOUR ARMS. Crossing your arms, wringing your hands, or making small gestures closes yourself off to others. An authentically confident person is open and welcoming
