Yesterday was the first day of the conference and it was exactly why I come to the show. You get to talk in person to people you chat with off and on all year but expand on all of it and see the facial expressions and reactions you can’t get through text and emails.
Being in retail I spend a lot of time looking at the body language of people in groups here at the conference. You can tell a lot about what’s going through people’s minds even though they aren’t even participating in a conversation. You can tell who is enjoying the conversation and wants to participate and who is looking to get out and talk to someone else. In some cases its people that just don’t know the other person and not interested to meet them, other times the conversation just doesn’t interest them. I try and make it a point to bring them in to the conversation but I can read when someone doesn’t want in. So I give them an out and kind of bring the other people’s focus to me and let them slip away without anyone noticing them. It seems like I’m shutting them out but I’m really doing them a favor.
Another social skill is the introduction of others. We all know faces and the ID badge is super helpful, but there are a lot of people we know but we can’t place or dig out a name. If you know someone well and there are some people in the group that may not, bail them out and introduce people. Nine times out of ten the other people will say “Yeah we’ve met” whether you have or not, but if they have you’ve taken an awkward moment and made it better for both parties. I’m always on my wife about not helping when we meet people. I want to introduce someone because I have known them a while, but I just can’t remember their name or their last name and so I just awkwardly smile as my wife comes up. I always tell her that if I haven’t introduced her in the first 3 seconds then she should introduce herself . Doing it so quickly that it seems I would have introduced her but she beat me to it. We both get to hear the name and nobody is the wiser. We’re a team and we should play like a team. But if she doesn’t bail me out coach yells at the team at half time.
And finally a giant thank you to Escrow.com. The gave me TWO brand new visors to replace my 8 year old visor. As seen on Domain Sherpa many many times and now to be seen many years to come. Thank you Escrow.com for helping this old man cover the bald spot and take off 10 years.
PS extra. Did you know if you copy something on your phone and hit paste on your Mac it will paste it on your computer?
