Shorts in a job interview

Have you ever had the experience of hearing someone share an embarrassing, vulnerable story, and immediately feeling more connected to them? Like the time I wore shorts to a job interview with an Executive in a very formal government department.

It’s because our imperfections connect us.

So what if we lead with them? (See The Imperfects and Armchair Experts podcasts for great examples of how to do this).

PS. By some miracle, I still got the job.
