The How-To Lounge: Leaving a Lasting Impression

Leaving a lasting impression will not only help your name come to mind in the work place, it'll also up the odds that the cute gent you met will search everywhere for your number the next morning. Since I know there are a few of you out there who'd rather fade into the background than stand out in the crowd, I have a few ideas for how to leave an impression without making a fuss. To see my ideas just


  • Obviously, if you're looking to make an impression, you want it to be a good one so set the tone by having a positive attitude. If you have positive energy, others will not only be drawn to you, but they'll pick up on that vibe and liken it to your face and name.
  • Try to make a statement in either your personality, opinion, or dress. Don't worry; I'm not suggesting that you drape a feather boa over your shoulders every time you meet someone new, but there's something to be said for someone who dresses the role that they're trying to convey. Just be yourself — you're unique and that alone will make you stand out.
  • Do what it takes to be an active participant in whatever is going on around you. It's important to be able to join a conversation and respond to others.
  • Just because you're joining in a conversation, it doesn't mean that you should try to dominate it. In fact, it's not a bad strategy to use an opening question to give other people the opportunity to talk. Oddly, I've noticed that people tend to associate positive thoughts and memories with people who listen to them.
  • On your way out, make sure to give goodbyes to everyone. Think of it as a way to give them a last reminder of who you are. You'd be surprised by how such a simple thing can make a big difference.

I think being yourself is definitely is a must. nothing wrong with being a little bit more suave than you usually may be.I also think its a great idea to avoid shooting down the ideas of others and respecting their opinions even if you don't agree with them. and don't come off as a know-it-all even if you are well versed on a particular topic.
