Recently, while attending a business course on mentoring and coaching, the instructor suggested a slightly offbeat social experiment.
Greet your business colleagues the way you greet your family pet.
So, minus the ear scratches and belly rubs, our team (who is normally fairly friendly to begin with), decided to take it up a notch and infuse more of that warmth into our every day greetings.
At first, it felt a little forced, but after receiving a few glowing smiles and witty wisecracks in return, we were hooked.
Give it a try. J
