Are You Good At Telling Your Stories?
During any interview your success will come from being able to tell relevant, exciting stories that draw in the listeners and encourage them to become active participants in how your stories play out. Practice being brilliant at telling “your stories” by using drama (e.g. add challenges you faced and other striking elements), use tonality and excitement to inspire the listener to want to hear more. remember, it’s important to tell why you took certain actions because this communicates how you strategically thought through your process. In your career-marketing arsenal you need stories that punctuate your successes and your ability to work through challenges (people and processes). You need stories that demonstrate how you think, react on your feet, lead and inspire others. Always keep in mind that you get as much time to tell your stories as your delivery style earns you. keep your topic interesting, the details relevant and your voice enthusiastic and always watch your pace (slow and fast). While everyone intends on listening to the stories you share there is often a lot of “chatter” going on in their mind, so work hard to keep their attention on you. try recording your stories and listening to them to make sure your delivery is exactly what you intend or find a trusted friend to test out your story-telling skills.
