Making Great First Impressions: What Does It Truly Take?
The old saying: “You never get a second chance to make a good first impression” has stood the test of time. Although it’s origin remains in question being attributed to such diverse people as Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, and Will rogers, the message lives on. Let’s probe what making great first impressions really takes?
Joining me as co-host for this discussion in our global #Peopleskills Twitter chat will be Dave Moore, founder of the The Moore Consortium. Dave hails from UK and reaches around the globe with his human potential transformation workshops (#HPTTransformation) for business and sales success.

Making Great First Impressions At Work and In Life!
Dave Moore suggested this people skills chat topic of making great first impressions because image can build or break down barriers. Yet, this topic is often overlooked as people prepare for their careers or start their businesses.
As Dave puts it, “Being seen as someone who is confident, calm, friendly, and approachable is the key to building, rather than burning, bridges. It is about energy, how you say what you need to say, how you treat people, how you speak to people and how you behave.”
This is a great people skills chat topic with so much to probe and ponder. Some questions to get us thinking in advance of Sunday’s #Peopleskills Twitter chat:
- How do you see yourself? What first impression do you make? Do others agree?
- What memories do you create when meeting others for the first time?
- How can we project confidence without arrogance?
- Making great first impressions: Is it a partnership or individual responsibility?
- How can we overcome assumptions and stereotypes in making great first impressions?
- When/how do goals and beliefs impact making great first impressions?
- How do we ensure that the lasting impression is worth lasting?
- How do we show we are worthy of other people’s trust and build trust that will last?
- How do we get a connection that will remain for a long time?
These are just some questions to get us thinking. Actual questions will post live during the chat.
