50 mg cialis dose In my last blog I shared the first of five essential skills for acing the interview: Showing Confidence, 50 mg cialis dose  In thinking about this second blog on listening, 50 mg cialis dose I was suddenly struck with the realization that mastery of these five skills is essential not just for interviews for most situations.  How valuable is showing confidence when teaching, 50 mg cialis dose speaking in public or meeting a stranger?

50 mg cialis dose The same applies to listening.  When we listen deeply and respectfully, 50 mg cialis dose without judging we can learn, 50 mg cialis dose understand the speaker and gain new insights.  Interestingly enough, 50 mg cialis dose it is not just the listener that benefits.  When we truly listen we liberate the speaker to think powerfully and creatively.  When we eliminate the fear of interruption, 50 mg cialis dose it gives freedom to their imagination.

50 mg cialis dose Not so long ago I was not a good listener.  I interrupted to share my own experience.  I thought about what I would say when the other person paused even just for a breath.  I compared their story to mine and judged which was “better”, 50 mg cialis dose and then one-upped them.

50 mg cialis dose What made me change? A wonderful teacher and coach, 50 mg cialis dose Nancy Kline, 50 mg cialis dose introduced me to her method for unleashing creativity in a workshop on creating an environment that promoted thinking, 50 mg cialis dose and later through her book Time to Think.  Nancy teaches that listening must be mutual and when it follows a set of agreed rules, 50 mg cialis dose including no interruptions, 50 mg cialis dose following the other’s gaze, 50 mg cialis dose non-judging and then asking incisive questions. 50 mg cialis dose I found when I listen and am listened to in this way, 50 mg cialis dose clarity and creative solutions flow freely.

50 mg cialis dose So, 50 mg cialis dose back to interviews.  What aspects of this powerful way of listening are applicable to interviews?  Actually, 50 mg cialis dose all of them.  As the candidate, 50 mg cialis dose you will want to listen for understanding.  Being certain of what is being asked is key to providing a satisfactory answer. 50 mg cialis dose Of course, 50 mg cialis dose you will want to think through what your answer will be and it’s OK to take a moment, 50 mg cialis dose perhaps by simply saying, 50 mg cialis dose “that’s and interesting question” to formulate your answer from the arsenal of STAR stories you’ve practiced (See earlier blog on PASS).  You can also paraphrase the question at the end if you have any doubt of its meaning, 50 mg cialis dose though I would suggest you use this sparingly.

50 mg cialis dose Hold the interviewer’s gaze as she asks the question.  Not only will this show confidence, 50 mg cialis dose it will also help her formulate her question in the clearest way possible.  Do the same when you answer, 50 mg cialis dose of course.

50 mg cialis dose Whatever you do, 50 mg cialis dose DON’T INTERRUPT! You may be excited to answer a question or think you know where the interviewer is going.  Resist the urge.  You cannot know what the question will be until the question is finished.  You cannot show respect and expect it if you interrupt. 50 mg cialis dose When it is your turn to answer you want to be able to speak without interruptions and the best way of receiving this treatment is to give it.

50 mg cialis dose It may seem like a simple idea, 50 mg cialis dose listen and you will be listened to. 50 mg cialis dose When being interviewed for a job, 50 mg cialis dose you do want to be listened to and you want your message heard. 50 mg cialis dose What better way than by listening for understanding?
