Whether you are technically gifted or not, how do you improve your engagement with others, whether you know them or not?
This concept is important in everyday life not just in interview situations and can be a learned skill.
But, where do you start if it’s not natural to you?
Here are 4 tips to improve on this:
📌 Planning: research the people you’re going to be interacting with and finding out their interests, work history, etc so you have some questions you can ask to start a conversation.
📌 Practice: practice makes perfect so put yourself in uncomfortable positions of talking to strangers whether you’re at work, in a shop, or street.
📌 Courses: look at some speaking/public speaking courses to boost your confidence and speaking techniques.
📌 Be happy: smile and be enthusiastic when speaking. Speak with confidence and be assertive in your approach.
Just a few examples, although there are many more to improving your communication skills in everyday life.
