Thumbs Up

Your thumbs are subtle indications of your power.

 

 

In dealing with those in authority, make sure they’re exposed at all times.

 

 

Don’t put your hands in your pockets. If you must, leave your thumbs exposed.

 

 

Thumbs forward when you have your hands at your side.

 

 

Shake hands with your thumbs up.

 

 

Successful executives will try to establish authority during a handshake by turning their hands over yours and turning your thumb down.

 

 

This is not an accident. They are sending an intentional message.

 

 

Once you start looking for it, you’ll see it repeatedly.

 

 

Posture, feet and thumbs.

 

 

They’re your triad of authority, sending a message that you’re self-assured.

 

 

Not just to those around you, but to yourself as well.
