Will Rogers once said, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
Well, maybe. It’s harder to do so, but you can correct a bad first impression.
In this week’s episode of the Reinventure Me podcast, my co-host Armin Assadi talk about how we form impressions of others and why it’s difficult to change them. Our episode How to overcome a bad first impression is a lively discussion about the challenges of overcoming the biases that others may form about us—and those we hold about others.
Drawing upon Dr. Heidi Grant Halovorson’s book, No One Understands You and What To Do About It (read my review), Leary and Armin share some helpful strategies to overcome bad first impressions. Find our latest show on the web or on iTunes and Stitcher Radio.
