Course overview

When meeting someone new we have less than 30 seconds to make a good first impression. People form an opinion of us from our posture, the way we speak, and the type of handshake we give. Well, would you want to shake hands with someone again if it felt kind of icky the first time around? 

While it might be possible to eventually turn around a negative first impression, it’s far better to create a positive one to begin with. Making a good first impression – whether in person or via your digital presence – can have a huge impact on your success in the workplace.
