Hello and welcome to another “Speaking Nugget”
NPR broadcasted a piece on first impressions on May 5, 2014.
It highlighted how important the word “hello” is in building relationships. Some Scottish scientists labeled it the Jerry McGuire effect from the movie “Jerry McGuire”. They go into it in the piece.
What is important here is how much attention we pay to our hello; whether it be a packed auditorium, class or conference room setting, not to mention the one with a co-worker, friends and family members.
Have you ever spent the time seeing if your hello resonates with the people you meet? After this you just may want to test your Hello and observe the reaction you get back.
OK, here is the clip from Jerry McGuire
Good bye. We will handle that at another time.
