Real iDeal Radio Podcast S1E8: Mastering the Art of the Introduction, Tactical Interview Phrases, The Feedback Sandwich

Is the personal introduction a lost art?

One important lesson I learned from my grandmother is to be inclusive of others. Over the years, I’ve noticed an opportunity for us to be more inclusive of other people. How? By introducing them to each other.

In episode #8 I point you to a favorite short film of mine that flips the script on our relationship with nature. I offer three clutch in-the-moment phrases to improve your interview skills, tell you why and how to master personal introductions, and review an article by Adam Grant that gives a healthy alternative to the “feedback sandwich”.
