Here’s a reminder about including people in social situations
Leaders make people feel valued.
It is a skill that comes with practice.
One trick, in a social setting, is to ask open questions.
What does your team do?
Who uses your service?
Can I introduce you to any of the attendees?
Most people like the chance to share something about themselves. It makes them feel included.
Leaders show others that they are welcome to be themselves. Perhaps that is a goal for all of us to work on in 2023?
