Trying Too Hard

I was working with someone today who is really brilliant and yet really struggling to find a job. We did multiple mock interviews and practiced many different answers to interview questions. What became very clear to both of us today is that he is trying WAY TOO HARD.

What he and I both learned it that while preparation is key – lightening up in an authentic way will build rapport and a sustainable connection.

So once again – less is more.

Have a great weekend,
Anita
