Facing an interview participant takes nerves of steel and iron self-confidence. Not many of us in this industry use such metallic adjectives about ourselves. Why do we need such armor when the goal is empathy? This workshop offers a few different approaches that will put you in the right frame of mind during an interview: relaxed. We will look into how thinking from a generative perspective will open up the interview. We'll find out how to set a reasonable scope perimeter inside of which we allow any sort of conversation to happen. We will practice the skill of listening without an internal dialogue. In-class practice will also help us slow down so we can sense the verbs indicating important information to pursue.
