The Wrong Body Language
Never look away from your audience. In the outside world you may multitask and look at your Blackberry while ordering a latte, but never lose eye contact with those who have come to hear you speak. Eye contact helps you connect to people and enhance feelings of trustworthiness and likeability. Fidgeting with your hands is distracting. When you use your arms, gesture from the shoulder—not your elbow—to avoid looking like you are doing the chicken dance. You should be neat and organized. “Nobody wants to look at your behind,” says Rosenthal, CEO of Communispond in East Hampton, NY. Do your best to avoid “filler" words. Run through a preview “performance” so you know you have the right amount of material to make the best use of your allotted time, and you’re not forced to rush to squeeze in important points. Keep sounds effects like chortling or laughing at a minimum. You don’t want to distract your audience—or inadvertently convey disdain—with visual effects like rolling your eyes. Smile.
