Tip Thursday - Networking Niceties
A small but very important tip for all of you net-workers out there... Put your name tag on your right hand lapel. Never the left. Our eyes start out looking at the other person's extended hand (to make sure we don't miss it while trying to shake hands) and follows the extended arm until meeting the other person's eyes. If the name tag is on the left then you are looking them in the eyes, having missed seeing their name. If it's on the right then they see your name while also having you introduce yourself. This helps them to actually hear your name, making them feel more comfortable and connected - what it's all about in net-working.
