Jordana Green Show Interview

Jordana Green hosts a radio show on WCCO 830 AM (Minneapolis) weeknights from 9 p.m. – 11 p.m. CST. On this show segments below she interviews Dan Rust about his book Workplace Poker, and offers her own insight into the modern work environment. They discuss self-promotion strategies, how to effectively “toot your own horn” without being perceived as a blowhard.

They also discuss the importance of personal charm and charisma in career advancement, and whether or not someone can actually learn to be more charming. Dan shares stories of several “charm-challenged” individuals who were able to develop greater effectiveness in this area. It took time and significant effort, but eventually these overly-serious grumpy folks were able to become quite pleasant and indeed, charming.

The total interview (parts 1 and 2 below) lasts about 30 minutes.
