I love to meet new people.
I love to hear their story. Where they are from. How they got there. Everyone has a unique and interesting story. Even if they say their story is “boring,” there is normally interesting aspects of their lives.
How did we meet? What brought them to the place they are now? What brought them to the exact place where I met them?
I love their answers. Especially when they start talking about an interest or passion. I get wrapped up in it.
I love when they start talking about something that I am really interested in knowing more about or doing.
For example, I am really interested in employee engagement nowadays. I met someone during a networking lunch today that does some work in that area. We started to talking a little about it and I grew excited. I didn’t get a chance to speak with her at length, but we have already set up a follow up meeting so we can chat in detail more. I can’t wait.
I know I’m going to love picking her brain more and gathering more information.
I love to meet new people!
