QuickTips #4: Shut Your Mouth

Know when to not talk.

My biggest problem nowadays is that I tend to go off on tangents or interject into conversations. Most of the time it’s relevant, but when it doesn’t meld with the rest of the group it’s quite noticeable. It can put you in a false position in the hierarchy. Given, I am not exactly the highest rank on set, my ability to project above it is already at a disadvantage, my speaking quirk doesn’t help.

This flaw makes you one of the girls. You’ll notice more and more that you come across as a good friend instead of a authority figure, which should always be your goal in the workplace no matter where you are on the food chain.
