What not to do. T. Abbott’s physical presentation

 In Body language, What not to do

Tony Abbott doesn’t look like a (alternative) Prime Minister.  If he was one of my sales presentation clients, I’d coach him as follows.  Tony, 1. Stand up and sit up straight – leaders don’t hunch over, they’re erect and own and occupy space. 2. Wear suits that fit you. 3. Hold and carry your body with more ease – the rigidness in which you hold your body is unleaderlike – it points to a rigid mind. Use B. Obama as an example of how to loosen up.
