If you are in the habit of leaning back and placing your hands behind your head, you will have to stop. This is a dominance display and can be particularly offensive to people. Acceptable dominance displays might include leaning back further in a chair or leaning away from someone as you speak. Some give-and-take is in order for dominance displays to be effective. During an initial meeting dominance displays can be great to set the tone and to establish some value in the eyes of a woman but once this connection is made, it's best to drop the displays or use them more tactfully and sparingly.
