The Pharma Sales Interview Breakthrough Blog
So, I came across this and wanted to share this. I think there are some valuable take-aways here from this article. "Owning the room" is not natural for some...certainly not myself.
For the full article, click here.
Here are the take aways and my thoughts.
1) Play to your Strengths
If you haven't identified your strengths via the Gallup Strength Finder - I would encourage you to do so. This will help you understand yourself - your balcony and your basements of your resepctive strengths.
In this article, the author shares how someone he works with must balance the "I" and the "We' when discussing a vision. How you...or this person in the article...uses those...can impact how others perceive the ego and collborative spirit of the this person.
Something to consider whether you are in your place of employment or in an interview.
2) Ask the darn question
Don't be afraid to seek clarity. There are likely others that need it and you won't be perceived as dumb...as much as you think asking questions may make you feel.
3) You - not the powerpoint - must own your message
No matter what meeting you are in - an interview or otherwise - put away the materials or black out the screen when you want to drive home an important point.
Have a great week everyone.
