I’m a hugger! I give hugs. A Hug has always been my mantra to business associates and colleagues. But with the Covid pandemic, not so anymore. A fist or elbow pump or shoe touch had to do. But it’s been hard for huggers and those touchy-feelers. So it’s with great news that the CDC cleared us! Yea. But now we must learn how to properly greet those we meet. Here are 3+ from what those in the news say.
Ask. Just Ask.
- Ask just ask. Ask do you mind shaking my hand?
- Do an air-handshake. What’s that? It means extending your hand and telling the other person you’re greeting them from a distance (smirk)
- Wear a mask. If you feel the need for extra protection, forget about the mass, do what makes you feel safe.
- In a place where everyone else is wearing a mask? Do it. The response… when in Rome, do as the Romans do
Yesssss we are still learning the new norm. Hope this etiquette tip that I gleaned, helps. Want to learn soft skills? Check Maxine for more. Any missing from the list above? Do share, we would love to hear.
