The 12 Most Important Ways to Let People Know They Matter

The 12 Most Important Ways to Let People Know They Matter | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |
Recognition, guidance, focus and connections from Angela Maiers, with advice on how to show the people that matter how they matter to you.

Everything about this article by Angela Maiers is wonderful and so appropiate for a Friday afternoon. I'm about to put out my Follow Friday right after this to let them know I appreciate their continuous contribution to our business community. If you're reading this, you matter to me and I hope this brightens your day.

The whole article caught my attention, here are just a few pearls...........

 Acknowledge Everyone

When you acknowledge someone, you recognize their value and importance. How about starting the day with a “Good Morning” email or Tweet? Or smiling at each and every co-workers as you pass by them by on way to the office? Or reaching out to a new acquaintance you see in a crowd or bump into in the Blogosphere? Go out of your way to acknowledge people.

Make an effort to “see them”. Like the Na’vi in the movie Avatar, who greeted one another with the phrase “I see you” as a belief and acknowledgment there is something marvelous in everyone you meet.

Listen With Interest

There is a difference between simply listening to people and listening with interest. This kind of listening requires your ears and heart. Listening with deep interest signifies that you really care about what someone is saying in contrast to simply listening because it is the nice thing to do. If you question whether people can tell the difference, DON’T. They can, and it matters.

Ask Mattering (not Matter-of-Fact) Questions

Question are a window into our minds and intentions. We show people how much they matter by the questions we ask. How important do these questions make you feel?

What rocked your world today? Who’s world did YOU rock today? How can I make your day? What can I do to make it better?

Be Present

Circles: Facebook’s reality failure is Google+’s opportunity

Who knows where Google+ will take us, Scott Rosenberg has written a good piece with his observations and it's definitely worthy of your time.

I got my invite last night and will have to let you know what I think after I've participated. We all know we don't really engage with all those "friends" on FB or "followers" on twitter. Being tht it mirrors our real lives it seems to me that this will enable real engagement. It'll be interesting to see what happens but it looks very promising.
