Phillip Hodson talks ‘body congruence’

In an interview situation it is likely that the candidate’s senses will be heightened, making them more aware of bad social signals and any signs of insincerity in your character. If you tell the interviewee that you are pleased to meet them whilst looking at the next candidate, or looking down at a piece of work, the person you are interviewing will not feel valued in your company’s presence.

Body congruence involves synchronising your words and body language to convey and emphasise the same message.

Psychology expert Phillip Hodson explains how to use your words and actions in unison to make each individual candidate feel valued.
