Ep. 063: Credibility Busters That Can Ruin Your Career, with Julie Broad
3 days ago
Are you a person who is thinking about the question you are going to ask more than you are thinking about the person who will be answering the question? Have you considered how your question or problem sounds to the other person? Guest expert Julie Broad says “People often think about themselves when they are communicating, when they should be carefully considering what matters to the other person.” Considering what perspective the question should be framed in so it matters to the other person, can make it a very different conversation AND increase your credibility. Job seekers should know that their vocal pace, vocal tone and body language, can erode their credibility when communicating. Julie encourages job seekers to not worry so much about what they say and to focus on how they are saying it. Making a confident statement can elevate your message. If you are not sure how you are communicating, try recording your side of a business conversation, or ask a trusted colleague to critique you during a networking event. Your Cadence Matters: Talking too fast may make it difficult for people to understand you. Talking too slow may be perceived as lower intelligence. Too many filter words (ah, umm, like) may derail your credibility. The most important things about your communications are that your message comes through clearly, and you demonstrate you know what you are talking about. Listen to the podcast to find out how the company you keep, and your appearance may also affect your credibility. Pro Tip - Dress in a way that makes you feel confident!
