Stand in a Launch Position

Stand in a Launch Position

Your stance is actually more important than your posture.

  • Your toes – which should always be pointed toward the person you are speaking with.
  • Your hands – should always be visible and ideally expressive as you speak.
  • Your arms – should always be loose so there is space between your torso and arms so you can gesture and easily reach out to shake hands.
  • Your shoulders – which should be down and back so they look nice and relaxed. They also should be angled towards the person you are interacting with.
  • Your chin – which should be neutral so you are not looking up at someone or sneering down at someone.
