Here are a few tips to help you BE THE BEST YOU!
FACE - EYES, MOUTH and EARS…
Make eye contact with everyone you meet, in and around your audition environment. This, for one, projects confidence, professionalism and maturity and also helps you remember faces… very important faces.
Smile, simply because smiles are contagious and they are lovely to look at. Everyone likes a smile.
"The biggest communication problem is we don’t listen to understand.
We listen to reply."
“Ears…?!?!” I hear you say. Ears are for listening and listening is vital when you first meet someone.
Listen for names (and remembering it).
Listen for instruction and direction to show focus and adaptability.
Listen to feedback and be prepared to progress from it.
