Look your charge and/or client in the eye.

When you walk, shift your ass around to make it look larger. Baggy pants will help.

Sniffle a bit when you’re about to say something. Not like you’re sick, but like you’re sniffing the air.

If you must wear eye apparel, chew it significantly.

Say “deck,” not PowerPoint.

Lead into a personality attack with “Well, here’s the thing …”

Laugh ONLY if something’s supposed to be funny and it’s not — as if you’re laughing at the attempt itself.

Every now and then, ask someone how they are, and pretend to listen…
