Maintaining eye contact
How do I make sure I maintain great eye contact when speaking to customers or other groups?
Maintaining eye contact is vital to any successful speaker. Try these ideas to improving eye contact:
- Vary where you look, so that you don't 'mow the lawn'.
- Try to look at everyone for an entire thought or phrase.
- Don't play favorites. Sometimes the final decision-maker is the passive, silent one.
Confident people look at people without staring and use their eyes to sweep the group.
