expert with over 20 years in the biz helping teams achieve their goals. As
a lead on many project teams I have mastered self-introduction and I’m gonna
share with you some of my tried-and-true techniques and strategies that allow you
to give an excellent first impression at your new job or with your new colleagues.
Go first, introduce yourself. Don’t hang back, if
you’re new to the job, really go around and introduce yourself, it’s a
great way to meet people, having that one-on-one connection is so important
and the good news is – there probably was an introductory email that you can
go to the to list to see who you really should be talking to since they’re the
ones you’re probably gonna be working with. Now, on a side note with that email, respond back, say that you’re so happy to be there, that you can’t wait to meet
them in person and how exciting it is that you’re starting to work in this job
or with this brand new team. Perfect the intro. So, even though it’s a really good
idea to focus on the other person by asking questions and more importantly listening to the answers, you really want to be prepared with a question that
you’re probably gonna get asked: tell me a little bit about yourself. So, that can
be an amazing opportunity to set up the first impression that people have about
you, so think about it, take a moment, what is it that you want to portray to other
people? Think about your skills, your talents, the training that you did and
sum it up very quickly, so in 30 seconds you can just let them know, here are some
highlights about me. You can even add in some hobbies too, because again, we want
to go on that personal note, you’re a person, you’re here, how exciting and
maybe there’s some commonality. Winning over a team can sometimes be hard. Let me
know if you’re on this new journey, put it in the comments below. Body language.
Use open body language, shake someone’s hand, it’s really important, not only
about what you say, about how you present yourself. One of the things that we do
when we’re new is sometimes we do close ourselves off by crossing our hands, we
do that as a protection mechanism because we’re still unsure, so really try
to keep your arms open, off to your side, shake that hand, look at people in the
eye and really have that openness that I’m here to listen, I’m with you. It does
make a huge difference. The close. Always end your introduction on a
positive note and one of the quickest ways to have connectivity with your other
person is to give them a sincere compliment or to ask them for their
advice. You’re new and it’s gonna help you, too, to get that information. Now that
you know how to introduce yourself like a pro, it’s time to take a look at your
productivity and I have something really cool for you, a download, 21 days to
getting sh*t done at work that really is going to help and skyrocket your career.
