Charles Barkley Interview

posted on 2011.06.04, under Interviews
I have interviewed thousands of people in over sixty countries.  I treat them all the same, including my interview with Charles Barkley.
Last week I got called to interview Charles Barkley in Atlanta, Georgia (I love working for CrossFit).  Barkley is a class act and very easy to interview.  Before I went into the interview I had a quick chat with myself.
I came up with these 7 elements that make every interview go to perfection.

1. Turn on the mic
2. Enjoy yourself
3. Show sincerity as you would with a loved one
4. Don’t feel rushed and come with cameras blazing
5.  Listen carefully and be hyper attentive to your subject
6. Don’t interrupt your subject.  Give them space, moments of silence between your questions.  Let the subject fill the moments of silence with more information – don’t rush follow-up questions.
7. Double check the mic.
