My friend Jen has the most amazing job ever.
My friend Jen has the most amazing job ever. She is a professional talker - like we are in sales.....but.......
Jen is a sideline reporter for the Seattle Seahawks and for ROOT SPORTS - NORTHWEST. One reason I know Jen has a cool job is because she earned a Super Bowl ring - and she interviews some of the best athletes in the world.
Jen's not so busy at the moment due to COVID-19Lucky for Jen, she also runs Talk Sporty To Me where she helps business leaders communicate better.
"A good story isn’t universal. What resonates with one person might not land with another. Yet it’s universally accepted the most influential and effective leaders are great storytellers. It’s a requirement that seemingly comes with a moving target unless you start with the same set of questions I use in the locker room. My goal in a post-game interview is to tell the story or what happened and why it matters. Essentially the questions I ask are ones every fan wants answered when they look at the outcome of the game. The answers athletes provide tell the story.
Each one of my questions fall into one of five basic categories:How did you contribute? There’s a specific reason I asked for the interview in the first place."
