Personable You

Personable: friendly or pleasant in manner; easy to get along with
(According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

It’s so important to do what makes you happy. Most would consider a sense of personableness a key trait needed for any PR professional, but it surely doesn’t stop there. All career paths, including business, marketing, advertising, nursing, sales, language, and art require confidence for success!  Here’s three easy ways to embrace that friendly side we know you have:

1. Always say hello – People appreciate and notice greetings more than you would think. Don’t you? “Hello” or “Good morning” to anyone you pass in the office or at your part-time job could easily make their day, and will put some pep in your step. If you consider yourself to be on the shy-er side, saying hello is an easy to start to break out of your shell and into a comfortable zone.

2. Relate, relate, relate – Understanding the audience is the key to PR and many business fields. Start relating by making conversation with the co-worker next to you, or making sure the client recognizes you are both on the same page; though two different types of situations, both can help in being easy to talk and can bring more projects your way.

3. Be inspired – Inspiration can boost your confidence – in your self, in your goals, and in your work ethic. Often times, inspiration will involve some of your favorite things and ideas, putting you in a good mood or give you a burst of energy. Get inspired by art, words, or stories to continue to work hard for what you want with a smile on your face for the world to see.
