It can be daunting meeting new people, let alone having to dive deep into their personal or professional lives during an interview. Personally, I used to hate just answering phone calls. I got a very rude shock in my university degree when I had to find and interview my own sources for news pieces, but luckily those experiences have helped boost my confidence in talking to strangers.
We were lucky enough to receive poignant pointers from not only our own in-house Lord of Word, Shannon Morrison, but also the incredible Glen Carlson, co-founder, COO and director of Dent Global.
Shannon’s 3-step formula stems from his experience in the field. Whilst Glen Carlson’s tips are derived from personal success and an interview he had with Ronsley Vaz on Should I Start a Podcast. Where they spoke about reframing rejection, sales and leveraging a podcast.
This week we also spoke about how many of us put perfectionist as a weakness on our resumes (guilty!). And shared an article about how to let go of perfectionism.
Sometimes I feel immense pressure to maintain a high standard. If you’re anything like me you might find it debilitating because you are too afraid to fail. Same goes in business.
If you could use some valuable tips on how to fine-tune your interview style or how to let go of perfectionism, make yourself a cup of tea, read our previous posts. While you’re at it, give yourself a pat on the back for wanting to become a better, stronger you.
