Great Communication- 2-  To Be the Best Version of Yourself

When you are communicating under any situation, the frame or point of view of yourself as being in an audition will focus you to make yourself to be the best version of yourself.  Strange but true, it is fun to be the best version of yourself!

 Practice these tips for communication whether in-person or remote or virtual meeting.  These are tips from experts about interviews.   You could even practice these tips on your own.  Like a rehearsal.    Actors and actress practice.  So do people who are going to do an interview for a job.  You can too.

When you are interviewing for a job, the frame of being in audition will focus you to make yourself stand out from other job applicants.   Practice these tips during your rehearsal for the interview:

  • State or show the not-obvious.  Create an intriguing statement about yourself.  For example, a woman expecting to be told “Tell us a bit about yourself, “( the most popular interview question and the most popular question when first meeting someone), replied. “ I think I should tell you I’m a non-conforming conformist.”    Ack, just so you know, this example comes from an interview. And this woman explained what she meant and wound up getting the job.
  • Think About and Show Outside- the -Usual: Think about something visual that really represents you or something that you  can do.  Perhaps a photo taken at an event you organized. Or a photo of you engaged in a hobby – maybe hiking, jewelry making, football/soccer, drawing. Use your smart phone photo!   If you have nothing that symbolizes your capabilities, look for a pattern not easily apparent just by looking at you (or in the case of a job interview, in your resume).  Be prepared to talk about that interest or talent, apart from your  everyday life or  work history.
  • A quick and easy way to get some ideas about communicating about yourself to others is this: Get to media, including YouTube interviews: Watch interviews and make note of what works for persons to communicate about themselves.  Look for traits that make people likeable and competent.  Research indicates that people who use gestures are perceived as being more social. Research also indicates that people who speak clearly are perceived as being 30% smarter.
