How Body Language Powers Your Brand
I think etiquette is old school. There, I said it.
With so many ways to communicate, is the idea of etiquette too confining in the Social Age?
Etiquette may be old school, but good manners still matter.
Soft skills are the new differentiators in personal branding. In a blink of an eye, we can fell valued or dismissed on social.
This week on #TChat: Deborah Thomas-Nininger, founder of DTN Productions International-Hallmark of Etiquette, joined our social community and shared her knowledge on body language and its electrifying brand affects.
People respond to body language first before the spoken word – many people don’t know the messages they are sending – #Tchat

Body language is more than just a good handshake: it’s an essential part of your personal brand.

Let people see who you are through your body language. Powerful body language is memorable: what takes years to build can dissolve in an instant.

Social technology has changed the landscape of personal branding and reputation management. Transparency and authenticity are non-negotiables in a world gone social. Your reputation is your personal branding, and vice-versa.
A3. Your brand is being created with or without your input; make effort to form it yourself and build your own reputation. #TChat

Body language is an often overlooked and under-estimated ingredient to successful personal branding. Give this critical soft skill the attention it deserves.
