The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Making a Good First Impression Doesn’t Have to Be Hard

Posted on: November 6th, 2018 by Griffin Transportation

first impression

Did you know that first impressions are nearly impossible to reverse or change and that it can be formed in just a mere three seconds? Favorable and unfavorable images tend to set the tone of relationships for quite a long stretch, so it’s really important for us to know just how to go about leaving others with a good first impression of ourselves.

Here, at our Vancouver car service, our chauffeurs are constantly reminded that great service isn’t something that happens naturally. In fact, it’s crucial to maintain a positive attitude and genuine care, and we strive to do that every single day. Our customers are important to us, and in order to provide them with the top-notch service they deserve, we feel that our commitment to customer satisfaction is utterly necessary.

Of course, first impressions are something that everyone has to go through or experience in their daily lives, so we’re more than happy to share our knowledge on this topic with a few handy tips just down below:

 

Appropriate Presentation

Your first image can definitely be worth a thousand words, but you’ll probably prefer certain words (positive ones!) above others. Of course, the way you dress speaks volumes, but you don’t necessarily have to dress to the nines or imitate a magazine catalogue. Instead, focus on dressing neatly and appropriately for the occasion or setting, and you’ll be well on your way to achieving a good first impression.

 

Be Authentic

Fitting in can be quite a task for those who identify themselves differently, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be accepted by those around you. Instead, you should seek to act and behave authentically, keeping in mind that being honest to yourself is one of the best ways to get those around you to trust the persona you’re projecting and to have confidence in seeing what they’re getting.

 

Show Your Winning Smile

Smiling goes a long way in the impressions department, and the best part about it is that it really doesn’t take a lot of effort. Of course, you might want to dial it down a notch so that you don’t present a smarmy and insincere persona, but otherwise, just remember to flash your whites. It’s a great way to put both you and the people you’re meeting at ease, so open that mouth!

 

Engage in Small Talk

This could take a little practice and getting used to, but it’s one of the few verbal ways to get to know one another. If you’re unfamiliar with a situation or person, it would help to prepare some questions in advance to keep the conversation flowing. Small talk is usually underestimated, but it can provide you with a goldmine of information and build the trust you seek to establish in others.

 

Remember to Be Courteous and Attentive

Nobody likes to be ignored, and that seems to be a dangerous theme these days with technology taking over our lives. It doesn’t take much to pay someone enough attention and consideration, and one great way to go about it is by shutting your phone off or putting it on silent mode for the duration of the meet-up. It might seem a little strange to you at first, but it’s a move that will definitely be appreciated.
