Practice Speaking with Confidence
Both hiring staff and prospects need encouragement to either hire or purchase from you. It is when you are able to speak with confidence about how you are able to fill their requirements and deliver extras that they will give you serious consideration, and be moved to say, Yes!"
Let's assume your confidence has been shot down, there are many competing individuals or companies, and you have lost belief you will be successful. It sounds dreary doesn't it? This is the exact reason learning to speak with confidence becomes so important.
1. Practice speaking in front of a mirror to see how you come across in body language, facial expression and demeanor. Do you appear stiff or friendly? Smiling naturally will help you to come across as friendly and as a team player. A team player is what most desire.
2. Relay your experience in story-telling fashion. Keep it short. The reason for this is people need help paying attention, and stories grab the attention for you. They illustrate the points you wish to get across. So while you are practicing your approach in the mirror, include a 1-2 minute story of how you faced an obstacle while employed or with another client. Experiement with your tone of voice to conclude with excitement to indicate an excellent outcome.
3. On the day of a Skype presentation or in-person interview, be dressed in your favorite outfit and colors that make you look vibrant. How you look is, according to a reputable study, weighs in on a large percentage of the decision making process.
