Consequently, the man resorted to waving his hand coupled with eye contact, which was fortunately understood by the waitress. The latter then flashed her most pleasant smile and walked over to the table of the
Also, I adopted the open posture and leaned forward during my conversation with J. Adopting the open posture allowed J to be involved in the conversation. It implied that I was not rushing to end the meeting and this motivated J to keep participating in the discussion. My leaning forward rather than backwards indicated that I was not bored with all the family stories the dad was telling me.

Keep notes as before, and try to exceed the amount of time you keep eye contact with at least one second per person (of course assuming they don 't break eye contact first). A common objection to this is "but if I keep eye contact for X seconds" it will seem creepy. This is an excuse created by your fears.

It adopts a bodily posture that indicates involvement with a client. O- Open posture, which can be a sign that you are open to the client and to what they have to say. Crossed arms and legs can be signs of lessened involvement with or availability to others. L- Lean toward the client to show your involvement and interest.
