A job search program was aired on television. The host asked a beautiful female participant.
“Let’s say I left you to host this program now. But one of the cast members suddenly slipped his foot while walking out and fell on the stage. Then what would you do?”
“I’m going to say, ‘Did you fall because my beauty was dazzling or because you were overwhelmed by the charisma of the twelve outstanding judges sitting here?'” After that, I will help him and continue the program.”
The host laughed at the female participant’s answer.
“You have to raise the cast first and then say something. Remember, you are a person before you are a host. If anyone falls down, the first thing to do is to quickly raise him up and ask him, “It’s okay.” Then you have to talk or joke around. How can you ask a person who fell, ‘Did you fall because of my beauty?’ And….”
The host gave such a good reference answer and explained it in detail.
Why shouldn’t I say it wrong in an urgent situation? This is because our values are easily revealed in that situation.
The customer says, “I won’t buy it if you don’t give me a discount.” Then you say, “Okay. I’ll give it to you cheaply. Do you tend to say “live,” or do you say this while defending your values?
“I really don’t have the ability to adjust the price. But I hope you buy it at this price. It’s not about the price of a good product, it’s about how much it’s worth to you and how good we provide you.”
If you have an accurate view of the problem, you can have an accurate attitude. Then, even in urgent situations, there are no cases of slip of the tongue or misrepresentation.
Take what happens at work as an example. One of my readers applied for an interview with a large advertising company. Thanks to my hard work, I went up to the final interview and met the company’s creative director.
The director was very satisfied with his major and career. It is said that as the interview went on, the director began to treat him completely like his own person. But the problem occurred right at the end. The director talked about an advertisement and asked what he thought.
At the time, he thought he should show off his skills and expertise as much as possible because he was nearing the end of the interview. He criticized the advertisement ‘all-out’. But at that moment, the director frowned a lot. He thought the director was deep in thought because his every word contained bones.
After the interview, he asked a friend working in the industry about the background of the advertisement. But returning was an unexpected answer. Yes, the advertisement was made by the director. Indeed, there was no acceptance call.
This is an example of a failed conversation. Through this story, we realize that we need to analyze the problem from various angles in case of a situation. The person who experienced this forgot that the company had already recognized his or her abilities and skills. The director’s questions and interviews were only to evaluate his personality.
However, no matter how good he had a personality, all he said was criticism and negative reviews of the same industry. Even if the director did not create the advertisement, such words give the impression that he is a very aggressive person. If there is someone around you who is talented but reluctant to work with you, this may be the reason.
I can’t tell you the specific way. But what I still want to tell this person is that when evaluating one thing, you have to look at it from various angles. First, you should find the advantages of advertising, tell them what characteristics or advantages people have not yet discovered, and then tell them what you lack. And when talking about the shortcomings, rather than criticizing how strange the advertisement is, you should say, “It would have been better if it proceeded in this way.”
