When you meet a person, you not only listen to what s/he is saying, but at the same time also notice their facial expressions, their body posture, clothes, etc. We all use visual clues to understand a person better. Whatever you notice in other people, they notice in you. Along with getting rid of any negative body language signals, you can use certain positive expressions to develop camaraderie and good relationships.

Positive Facial Expressions

When you meet somebody, make sure you smile while greeting them. It shows that you are genuinely happy to see them. Even if it is everyday that you greet someone, do not allow yourself to take the other person for granted. Make it a habit to be at your best at all times.

The easiest way to express pleasure at meeting someone is to genuinely feel happy to be meeting them. It will show in your facial expressions and tone of voice, and will make the other person feel good about the meeting too.

Slight Physical Touch

We only make a physical contact with somebody when we like them. In professional or general personal communications, slight physical touches such as a light touch on the arm or on the shoulder is acceptable. When making physical contact, first make sure that the other person is comfortable with it. If s/he does not react well to it, avoid making physical contact in the future. If, on the other hand, s/he feels good about being liked, you may use it sparingly.

When shaking hands, it is best to exhibit warmth through it. Make sure that your handshake is neither too firm nor too weak. With the handshake, use a genuine smile and a positive tone of voice to make the other person feel welcomed and admired.

Eye Contact

When you are interested in communicating with a person, you maintain your eye contact with them because you are intently listening to what they are saying. On the other hand, if you are disinterested in a person or an environment, you look around to find something interesting. To show the other person that you are genuinely interested in them, you must maintain eye contact with them and not let your attention wander.


Your posture tells you a lot about you and also how you are reacting to the other person. For example, if you turn your body away from a person or if you stand a long distance away from them, it shows that you are not interested in them. Therefore, when communicating, make sure that you stand or sit facing the other person and provide enough positive nonverbal signals.
