Passion, enthusiasm,energy

Why is there so little of the above around?
We interviewed this week and the 2 people we chose had lots of all 3when we met them. We ran a group interview and each person made a presentation. The 2 who came through to ‘formal’ interview stage showed they really wanted the position.
When you are asked “What do you do?” how much of the 3 do you show? if you’re not passionate and enthusiastic about what you do, what chance have you attracting others to use your services or products.
When you make a presentation, whether it is to colleagues, clients, prospects or
professional contacts you are saying “I’ve earned the right to be up here; I’m
an expert.”

When you do it well i.e. in a confident and convincing manner it is the very best way of
marketing. When you give away free and valuable information to your relevant
audience it is one of the very best methods to attract new business.

BUT, when you present in a nervous hesitant manner, go on unprepared, read from the screen, put no energy, passion or enthusiasm into your talk you are damaging your
company’s reputation.

It will always be better not to volunteer if you see yourself with the shortcomings in the previous paragraph.
